Search for 100 Women in Cycling 2018 is over!

Cycling UK launched its search for another 100 inspiring Women in Cycling on International Women’s Day – one hundred years after women were first given the vote.

Cycling UK's search for female nominees for the 100 list - from some of the biggest names in cycling, to women working largely unrecognised in grassroots development, and all those in between - is over and the names of those who made the list will be launched very soon.

The aim of the list is to inspire, educate and promote women’s cycling and to encourage more women to get on their bikes for health, fun and everyday activities.

Julie Rand, Cycling UK’s 100 Women in Cycling Coordinator said: “A hundred years ago, some women were first given the right to vote after a long battle by the Suffragettes, many of whom used bicycles as they campaigned around the country. It seems fitting that a century later we’re championing women who are doing so many fantastic things around cycling.

Far fewer women than men cycle regularly in the UK, and yet the physical and mental health benefits of cycling are particularly beneficial for women. By highlighting some of the amazing achievements of these 100 women, we want to inspire other women to build cycling into their everyday lives.

The final list has now been published to coincide with the start of Cycling UK’s Women’s Festival of Cycling.

The festival is a month-long celebration of women’s cycling with female-friendly rides taking place around the country.

“Every woman on last year’s list was an equally worthy nominee, and this year we wanted to shine a spotlight on another 100 women who deserve recognition," said Julie Rand.
