NEW WOMEN’S-ONLY ROAD FUNRIDE
To date more than 200 women have entered the PPA “Heels on Wheels”, presented by SHAPE magazine (11 Dec). Choose from a 47km and 13km route. Great goody bags to the first 350 entrants. The event is specially designed to cater for newcomers to cycling and female cyclists who perhaps don’t participate in funrides as often as they’d like..
