2023 100 Women in Cycling list celebrates women across the British cycling community.

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

Cycling UK has released its annual 100 Women in Cycling list for 2023, the seventh such initiative to celebrate women across the British cycling community and those who inspire others to cycle.

The list features a diverse range of women, from fundraisers and community leaders to pro riders and industry figureheads, with 100 different women named each year. The list is split into the categories of Community Champion, Cycle Influencer, Industry Mogul and Sporting Hero, and is part of Cycling UK's aim to get more women on bikes.

“A great way to encourage more women to cycle is to share the stories of these amazing women – whether they’re chronicling their adventures on social media, advocating for better infrastructure in their neighbourhoods, inspiring their communities to join them for a ride or winning medals around the world,” said Cycling UK’s chief executive Sarah Mitchell.

“Choosing the top one hundred winners involves some really tough choices – there are so many brilliant women out there who we’d want to celebrate.”

Names in the ‘influencer’ category include mental health advocate Amy Hudson and Ottilie Quince, the subject of the documentary Cycling Changed My Life.

The youngest person on the list is nine-year-old Heidi Barker, who is riding the distance of Paris to London to raise money for Alzheimer’s Research UK and MacMillan after raising £16k walking the equivalent of Land’s End to John O’Groats.

She is featured alongside women who are working hard to make cycling in the UK more inclusive and welcoming to all, like Humira Shahzad, Sabeha Miah and Nahida Hussain from Cycle Sisters, a Muslim women’s cycling group and charity, and Bridie Barnett, a campaigner with Kidical Mass getting more children riding.

The list also highlights women working within the cycling industry, such as Lynne Bye who co-founded size-inclusive kit brand Fat Lad at the Back, and Sophie Bujdoso, the CEO of cycling training company B-Buddies.

Riders from the racing world were also celebrated, with Demi Vollering making the list as the 2023 Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift winner, as well as Paralympic cyclists Kadeena Cox OBE and Aileen McGlynn.
