Cycletta

In 2014 Cycletta inspired hundreds of women to get out there and ride. Maybe it was your first sportive, maybe you eat sportives for breakfast. Either way, in 2015 Cycletta is offering 100km and 150km routes for the first time on four of its five events, so you can tackle the next level of challenge, or even get involved for the first time. If you're not up to your first 100km or 150km just yet, don't worry - all events will have a 50km route, with a 20km course in Bedfordshire for novices.

Cycletta is hoping the 150km route will attract significant attention among those looking to push their riding this year, and encourage women not to be put off by the longer distance and to get out there and give it a go. And there will be free recovery areas to pamper yourself a bit once you're done.

From Scotland to the New Forest, Cycletta events run from June to September, and if you book before 31 January Macmillan Cycletta is offering early bird discount of £5, or five places for the price of four on group bookings, so sign your mates up and get training together!

The 42 km Cycletta route joins three days of sportives that make up the Dragon Ride, with the 43km Corto, 153km Medio Fondo, 226km Gran Fondo, and 302km Dragon Devil routes.
