After realising there was no mention of gender issues in the APPCG's 'Get Britain Cycling' report, the group decided to invite a selection of speakers, including Cycling UK's Hannah Chivers, along to a meeting to highlight some of the issues specific to encouraging more women to cycle and ways that some of the barriers are being overcome.

Sam Sahdra reckons cycling with the Handsworth Ladies is like being part of one big, happy family. Not that Sam got off to the greatest of starts when she first considered taking up cycling.

The quality of entries for our Best Community Project award was so high that it ended up being shared between two extremely worthy and hard-working groups – Whalley Range on Wheels and Onna Bike. Both are Cycling UK Community Clubs, both have been heavily involved in our Big Bike Revival – and both have been helping people to cycle, with fantastic benefits to their respective communities.
