This year, the Go-Ride Racing programme in the UK will shine a spotlight on Go-Ride Racing events that include a girls-only race, by offering clubs additional resources and support. To celebrate racing for girls, British Cycling are encouraging clubs to either host a girls-only race within an existing event of host a dedicated event for girls.

The incentive? All those keen to organise a girl-only event will receive an additional set of prizes for the races.

In full support of the initiative is Laura Trott, double Olympic champion and world champion: “There has never been a better time for women’s cycling, with major international events inspiring women and girls to get on their bikes.

"Go-Ride Racing events hosted by clubs provide young girls with the perfect environment to don their first race bib, have fun and test their race skills."

This year, Go-Ride Racing will once again provide clubs with bespoke prizes for delivering series of two, four or six events all year round.
