Women only cycle events

More and more women are taking up cycling. I have written about this fabulous trend on many occasions and you only have to look around at paths and trails to see a growing band of girlie riders. Just recently some of my blog, Facebook and Twitter followers have been asking about women-only events. So here, and  thanks to the wonderful Filles a Velo, is a list of some of the women-only or women-inclusive cycle events taking place across the UK in 2012.

If you know of more events please do tell me. You can also check out regular news updates at the Facebook  Scotland’s Women Cyclists
