In response to market demand Macmillan Cycletta, the UK's leading women-only sportive series, has recently announced they are extending their series distances at five of their events to include a shorter, 20km route option. 

The shorter distance will offer participants new to cycling an alternative to the longer routes preferred by more experienced riders. 

Earlier this year, Macmillan Cycletta announced it was also adding new longer routes of 150km to several of the events in response to feedback from participants looking for greater physical challenges. 

Dan Lipman, marketing director of event organisers, Human Race commented: "We're very much listening to what our participants are looking for from an event and ensuring their needs are met. We're delighted to include the new distances and look forward to getting many more women involved this year." 


Liz Hemming, Cycling Challenge Events Programme Manager from Macmillan Cancer Support, commented: "It is such a rewarding experience taking part in an event like Macmillan Cycletta and raising vital funds for charity in the process." 

Hemming continued: "Many participants raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support and we believe the 20km distance will very much appeal to a wide spectrum of fundraisers of all abilities, as well as those ladies who may be entirely new to cycling as a sport." 

Cycletta was launched three years ago and so far over 10,000 women have taken part in an event across the UK.
