Chatteris Cycling Club is celebrating having increased the number of ladies riding in the group.

It follows the success of the club’s ‘Pink Ribbon Ride’ which took place in July.

The event was intended to raise money for Breast Cancer Care and to encourage local women of all abilities to get on their bikes.

Now, it’s part of a national initiative by British Cycling - who’s ambition is to get one million more women on their bikes by 2020.

Louise Smith, of Chatteris Cycling Club, has become a Breeze Champion.

She said: “The rides we offer are fun, free bikes rides as well as plenty of support and inspiration for women of all abilities across the Fenland area.

“There are numerous benefits of riding including exercise, fresh air, friendship and a sense of wellbeing.”
