A major cycling series that aims to help get one million women on their bikes by 2020, is coming to Bedfordshire.

Macmillan Cycletta, the UK’s leading series of women-only bike rides, comes to Woburn Abbey on Saturday, June 20, and registration is nowopen.

Last year nearly 5,000 women across the UK took to two wheels to take part in the cycling series, which encourages women of all ages and abilities to get on their bike.

Many of them raised funds for official charity partner Macmillan Cancer Support.

Macmillan Cycletta Beds includes a range of distances, from 20km to 150km.

And for children aged four to eight, there’s a Scootathlon – a mini fun triathlon where they scoot, bike and run.
