Nominations open for Cycling UK’s 100 Women in Cycling 2022

Posted on in Cycles News

Cycling UK has opened nominations for its annual list celebrating inspirational women who empower others to get cycling

Now in its sixth year, 100 Women in Cycling is an opportunity to celebrate women from across the cycling community, from sporting heroes and influencers, to industry figures, community champions and local activists.

Last year’s list included Louise Vardeman, GB athlete and founder of all-female team InternationalElles, formed in 2019 to generate conversation about gender equality in cycling, and whose efforts in part can be thanked for the return of the Tour de France Femmes in 2022.

Sarah Mitchell, Cycling UK’s chief executive said:

“This summer is the perfect time to celebrate active women: from the long-awaited return of the Tour de France Femmes to the Lionesses at the Euros, to the ongoing achievement on the track in Birmingham at the Commonwealth Games.

“All these amazing sports stars deserve celebrating, but with Cycling UK’s annual 100 Women in Cycling we go beyond the world of athletic achievement. We want to shine the spotlight on all those people who identify as women making a positive difference to cycling across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

“Whether that’s campaigning for safer streets, leading the club runs in your local cycling club or someone who has battled adversity to take on a cycling challenge – nominate them today, and help Cycling UK recognise their contribution to the rich cycling culture we enjoy across the UK.”

Nominations close midnight on Sunday 21 August. To nominate someone you think should be celebrated go to: https://www.cyclinguk.org/webform/nominate-someone-100-women-cycling-2022
