Here Come the Girls

As we start the countdown to the Olympics, the organisers of Cycletta have announced exciting expansion plans that will see seven events being held in 2012 around England, and longer routes for those wishing to take their cycling to another level.

Cycletta is a unique series of women-only, mass-participation cycle events run on managed roads, aimed at inspiring female cyclists.  Each event hosts a 40km distance, and a longer distance which varies by event, providing a sufficient fitness challenge, whilst remaining achievable and accessible (designed to ensure participants will need to consider their general fitness, training, apparel and equipment prior to competing).

Supported by Olympic Gold Medallist Victoria Pendleton, these events align with Victoria’s commitment to inspiring British women, to take up cycling as a meaningful fitness and lifestyle pursuit, whilst also providing current cyclists with an enjoyable and friendly environment to pursue their passion.

The series returns to Tatton Park on 7th October and will feature the unique touches that made the 2011 events so popular.  Riders will face a safely managed route on quiet country roads, treat stops will be based along the route, the very popular pamper zone will be based at the finish in the Cycletta village and all riders will be able to tap into pre advice training, cycle wear fashion, and a range of motivational information to make the buildup to Cycletta fun and enjoyable.

Cycletta Ambassador Victoria Pendleton (MBE) said: "Being able to cycle with so many girls on bikes in Cycletta last year was one of my highlights of 2011.  2012 should be a special year and I really hope that 1,000s more women will join me on a bike this year.  Cycletta is the perfect event to get on two wheels with the girls and have some fun!  I hope to see you out there."
