The Total Women's Cycling Awards in association with Velo Vixen is a celebration of all things women's cycling. We want to praise the people, brands and events that have supported its growth and ongoing progression throughout 2014.

These finalists are the result of our reader's nominations. Within the 11 award categories are eight awards, which will be voted by you, our readers, giving you the opportunity to project your voice and opinion as a female cyclist back to the industry. The remaining three will be decided by a panel of influential women in the cycling industry.

Remember every vote counts, so spread the word, share the link, and get everyone you know involved! Voting is super simple, it takes just 6 minutes to complete. And even better than that, every person that takes the time to vote will be entered into a prize draw to WIN a WHOPPING £2500 worth of bike goodies which includes a carbon frame Boardman bike, a week long cycling holiday and more apparel than you could ever wish for!
