We are excited to announce that WOW (Women on Wheels) will be holding Worcestershire’s first ever all female cycling sportive on the 2nd of October. WoW are supporting New College Worcester in this event and aim to raise money to buy and maintain a tandem bike for the students to use.
The students at the college LOVE cycling and can often be seen tandem cycling around the campus. It is one of the most popular after school activities. An extra tandem bike would be invaluable to the College and students and a real asset.
This event is open to all ladies of all abilities. For more information on the routes and to book a place on the sportive via the British Cycling website, please click here
Women on Wheels believe that everyone should have the opportunity to fall in love with cycling, regardless of disability. They are therefore offering those entering the sportive and their supporters the opportunity to raise funds for the tandem via sponsorship. Donations or individual fundraising pages can be made via their JustGiving page.
On the day WOW will also be offering refreshments at the start/finish point – Norton Parish Hall. There is no charge for tea and cake but ‘customers’ can make donations. Why not pop down on the day, see the riders and say hello!
On Tuesday, we were lucky enough to have six members of WOW visit the College. They enjoyed meeting 6th form Student Lydia who spoke of her love of cycling and tandem riding experience. They also got to look at some of the tandem bikes we have on campus too.
We look forward to having a new tandem kindly sponsored by WOW.
Thank you WOW.”
