Womens Festival of Cycling

Throughout July, Cycling UK is delivering the Women’s Festival of Cycling. The festival is celebrating female cyclists and is about providing more opportunities for women to ride. The festival will see a wide range of female-friendly rides and events delivered across the country supported by Cycling UK.

We’re asking Member Groups, community groups and individuals to put on women’s rides throughout July in order to help as many women as possible enjoy the enormous benefits of cycling. Registering a ride is easy and you do not have to be a member of Cycling UK, part of a group OR an existing ride leader to get involved.  

100 Women in Cycling
We also want to recognise the many inspirational women who are already doing so much for women’s cycling through the100 Women in Cycling campaign. The idea is to celebrate and say thank you for the contribution that so many women have made to the cycling world.  Whether it is by working hard to make cycling more open to all, delivering opportunities to ride as part of a Member Group or achieving results on the campaign front, we want to ensure that achievements are recognised.  
We’re also holding an event on Monday 10 July from 5.30pm until 8pm in Birmingham to which all nominated women will be invited to attend. I will be hosting the event and there will be talks from Aleysha McGowan and Emily Chappelle.

To nominate someone for our 100 Women in Cycling list, send a short summary of who they are and why you think they should be included to
