As part of our Women's Festival of Cycling, we're celebrating the efforts of female cyclist Lorraine Dixon, as she inspires women in Birmingham to get out and discover cycling.

 
 
Ted Little, who is due to turn 90, on Sunday 16 July, has enjoyed a lifetime of cycling, and still attends his local club, where he cycles an impressive 50 miles a week. The Solihull based cyclist and veteran has been a member of Cycling UK for over 49 years and a member of his local cycling group ‘Shirley Roads Club’ since the 1950’s

 
 
According to new research from Cycling UK, women who do not cycle on a daily basis are most likely to cite feeling nervous about cycling on the roads because they think it’s dangerous as being a barrier to them cycling more often (44% compared with 26% of men).

 
 
If you think cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats is a challenge, try doing it in the hottest weather the UK has seen for 40 years at the age of 70! New Cycling UK members Mark Mathews and Clive Lindley-Jones, both septuagenarians, have just done exactly that.
