Cycling Events

We aim to use this space to publish information about events that may be of interest to the female cyclist. As we are based in Leicestershire the majority of our posts will be Midlands related but if we hear of events further afield that warrant coverage we’ll add those too. Our goal is simply to get you girls out on your bikes…

  • Ladies Only Rides
    Hinckley can now boast that it has three local HSBC Breeze Champions.  Trained by British Cycling as leaders for ladies only cycle rides, the three leaders aim to offer suitable rides for all abilities.  If you live in or around the Hinckley area then there are led rides organised weekly throughout the year (weather permitting of course).  For more information look out for the Hinckley Breeze Cycling on Facebook or visit Hinckley Cycle Racing Club website at
  • Women’s Time Trialling
    For those ladies out there who like to push themselves further and faster there is also the Midlands Women’s Time Trial Series with events starting on Saturday 28th April.  See for full details.
  • Cross Country Mountain Bike Racing
    For those of you who are not afraid of a little mud and prefer the fatter tyre side of life then the Midlands Friday Night Summer Series might be something for you to try.  These are a series of friendly Mountain Bike races held across the Midlands from May through to the end of August.  Competitors can compete in the whole series or choose to take part in as few or as many races as they like.  The various categories including Ladies are set off at timed intervals so as to split the pack up.  First race of 2018 is at Borough Hill, Daventry on Friday 18th May.  See website for more details
  • Ladies Only Sportives
    In 2019 we had the pleasure of riding a ladies only sportive ran by an organisation called 2 Wheels and a Piece of Cake.  We can highly recommend their events which take place in Leicestershire around the Vale of Belvoir in some beautiful countryside.  These will be a regular booking on our calendar.  For more information on these events visit
