Cycle Suffolk presents Women On Wheels (or WoW for short), an opportunity for all women and girls to get on their bikes to take on a challenge and have some fun!
Women On Wheels events are mass participation female only rides, raising money for local charities, that put a strong focus on the fun, friendly and inclusive aspects of cycling. They are very much aimed at non-cyclists and existing cyclists alike, with routes of an achievable distance, and are open to all ages from 8 to 80+ years old.
In 2015, three WoW events took place in Suffolk; Bury St Edmunds, Lowestoft and Sudbury. The rides have become increasingly popular, some doubling their number of participants from previous years to around 200, and have proved to be an excellent community activity.
The Rendlesham ride will take place at Army Rock Barracks, Sutton on Sunday 30 October with two rides taking place using the airfield and Rendlesham Forest to raise funds for the Suffolk Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
The 5km starts at 10:30am for £5 and the 15km ride starts at 11:30am for £15. Under 16’s are free if accompanied by an adult.
If you sign up by Sunday 23 October, you are guaranteed a goody bag and will be entered into the prize draw.
Loan bikes will be available for the event on a first come first served basis.
If you would like to sign up to raise money for the Royal British Legion through your bike challenge, download the sponsorship form.
