PedAlma Women’s Challenge is a project that aims to promote and facilitate female practice and participation in ultracycling and bikepacking.


After several years organizing ultracycling events, we have detected that many women who practice cycling have not decided to take the last step and try an ultracycling event.

This indecision is often caused by a lack of confidence in new and unknown situations.

Doubts about physical preparation, mental preparation, or decisions about the gear or how to deal with certain situations during the event are what stop you from taking the step.

Pedalma Women’s Challenge wants to provide answers to these questions and accompany women in the preparation for these events.


Initially, we will hold a Kick-off presentation and Gravel Social Ride in Girona, open to all women who want to learn about the project.

The women who participate in the PedAlma Women’s Challenge will be accompanied throughout the preparation for Madrid to Barcelona and/or for The Capitals.

You will be able to access the internal Online Presentation: Where you will meet the rest of the participants, know about the project and training plans.

Participating you will have a specific Training Plan and you will have access to the PWC private WhatsApp group where you can answer questions and interact with the rest of the participants and with the trainer Laura Gallardo @laucyclecoach.

We will also organize a stage weekend, with Gravel bike (The PedAlma Women’s Weekend) to share and put into practice all the learning while we enjoy nature on the bike.
