Female participation in cycling events throughout Scotland has jumped 35 per cent year on year, according to Scottish Cycling.

To support this growth Scottish Cycling has announced that it will be hosting a completely free Road Race workshop, specifically for female riders looking to get into racing, new to racing or want to build their confidence. The workshops will include how to prepare for a race, what to bring to a race and what to expect while racing, as well as advice on nutrition and bike coaching led by our friendly female coaches.

Commenting on the news Vicky Strange, Scottish Cycling’s head of development said: “I am delighted to announce Scottish Cycling has seen a 35% increase in women participating in cycling events in 2014 compared to 2013. This confirms women’s opportunities to get involved with cycling are really going from strength to strength in Scotland.

“Providing quality coaching, leadership, training and racing opportunities, such as the Women’s Road Race Workshop, at a local, regional and national level is an essential part of developing riders in Scotland, whether they rider for sport, leisure, to stay fit or have fun.”

The workshop will take place on Sunday 29th March, from 10:00am – 16:00pm at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, Glasgow.
