BikEnvy editor Bex Hopkins has told BikeBiz that she believes the cycle trade has improved its offering for female cyclists.

She said: "Judging by the number of women and girls we see out riding, we think things are continuing to swing in our favour."

But there is still much to be done, Hopkins added: "My dream is for all women-specific bikes to be designed and built to weigh less, so they work better for our (often) smaller size and weight.

"Why should my bike weigh the same as my hubby’s, when he is 25 per cent bigger, heavier and stronger? Women don’t tend to break bikes or wheels, despite often riding hard too, so I’m hoping it won’t be too long or too expensive for my dream to realise."
