Women on Wheels (WoW) Sudbury is calling all women and girls to get on their bikes again for this year’s female mass participation ride on Sunday 21st July.

Starting from Acton Village Hall, the event is open to women and girls aged eight and over of all abilities with a choice of completing the 20 or 50 mile route through the beautiful countryside and cycle paths around Sudbury and surrounding villages.

As always the ride will be fully marshalled with en-route stops for tea and cake.

WoW Sudbury, is one of four WoW events across Suffolk this year and is organised by Abbeycroft Leisure in partnership with Suffolk County Council and St Nichols Hospice Care.

Tracey Loynds, Development Director at Abbeycroft Leisure said:

“We are delighted to be hosting our fifth WoW event in Sudbury especially after the success of last year’s event, when over 128 women and girls took part. One of the most fulfilling aspects of WoW is seeing the joy on the faces of the women and girls taking part, often rediscovering the pleasure of being on a bike, and this is reflected in much of the positive feedback we received.”

Dr Amanda Jones, Director of Public Health at Suffolk County Council said:

“Women on Wheels provides a fantastic stepping stone for women and girls to get on their bikes in a friendly and welcoming environment, and enjoy the freedom and exercise that cycling can provide. With the OVO Energy Women’s Tour starting in Suffolk on the 10th June, I hope that it will inspire even more women and girls to sign up and take part. We want to encourage as many people as possible to increase the amount of exercise they take and get the benefits this will bring to their health and wellbeing.”

St Nicholas Hospice Care’s Community Fundraiser George Chilvers said:

“Now in its fifth year we’re delighted to see WoW Sudbury go from strength to strength. Over the last five years the event has raised over £20,000 and has made a huge difference to St Nicholas Hopsice Care. As the palliative care provider for Sudbury, it’s so important for us to get support from the town and surrounding areas – this event is doing just that. Please sign up and together we really can help. Thank you.”
