For the third year, Cycling UK is organising the Women's Festival of Cycling, which takes place throughout the UK in July. We are calling on everybody, from cycling groups and clubs to individuals to register a women-only rides to inspire women to cycle. Women are often underrepresented when it comes to cycling. The reasons for this are complex but the physical and mental health and well-being benefits of taking part for women are especially great. Some women need extra encouragement to start and continue cycling, while many others just enjoy riding in female company.
