Macmillan Cycletta announces new 20k route

In response to market demand Macmillan Cycletta, the UK’s leading women-only sportive series, has today announced they are extending their series distances at five of their events to include the 20km distance.
The shorter distance will offer participating ladies an alternative to the longer distance routes preferred by more experienced cyclists and is ideal for beginners looking to take up cycling, or participating in their first major cycling event.

Earlier this year, Macmillan Cycletta announced it was also adding new long distance routes of 150km so several of the events, in response to feedback from participants that they were looking for greater physical challenges.

Dan Lipman, marketing director with Human Race commented:
“We’re very much listening to what our participants are looking for from an event and ensuring their needs are met. We’re delighted to include the 20k distance in the Macmillan Cycletta Series and look forward to getting many more women involved in the event series this year.”

Liz Hemming, Cycling Challenge Events Programme Manager from Macmillan Cancer Support commented:
“It is such a rewarding experience taking part in an event like Macmillan Cycletta Bedfordshire and raising vital funds for charity in the process. Many participants raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support and we believe the 20k distance will very much appeal to a wide spectrum of fundraisers of all abilities, as well as those ladies who may be entirely new to cycling as a sport.”

The 20km route has been added to five Macmillan Cycletta events nationwide throughout 2015, including at Woburn Abbey, Bedfordshire on Saturday 20th June where women can now enter 20k, 40k and 70k distances.
Cycletta was launched three years ago and so far over 10,000 women have taken part in an event across the UK.
