With just over four weeks to go until Macmillan Cycletta Bedfordshire sets off from the magnificent Woburn Abbey on 20 June, Bedfordshire bargain hunters can still grab a deal by signing up to participate before midnight on Thursday 21 May, after which time entry fees will increase.  

On track to make a significant contribution to British Cycling's plans to get one million women cycling by 2020, Macmillan Cycletta Bedfordshire is open to women of all ages and abilities and includes different distances ranging from 20km to 70km to ensure that cycling participation is accessible for women regardless of their experience. 

There's something for the kids too, as all events in the Macmillan Cycletta series include a Scootathlon taking place on the same day.  The Scootathlon is a mini fun triathlon for children between the ages of 4 and 8 where they scoot, bike and run. 

Last year, more women than ever before took to two wheels to participate in the cycling series which was launched to encourage women of all ages and abilities to get on their bike. Almost five thousand women across the UK took part in Macmillan Cycletta last year, many of them choosing to raise vital funds for Official Charity Partner, Macmillan Cancer Support in the process.

Gillian Daly, Senior PR Manager at Macmillan Cycletta commented: "The Bedfordshire event is always fantastic, with more and more ladies signing up to take part each year. There are many reasons why women should get out on their bikes - whether it's to keep fit, socialise or to raise money for a good cause like Macmillan Cancer Support." 

Each Macmillan Cycletta takes place in stunning surroundings, on safe, well-managed roads and with loads of fun for all the family. 

The Macmillan Cycletta website offers a host of information on training, event day advice and bike maintenance. There are also active Twitter and Facebook resources to encourage participants to stay up-to-date with the latest news and developments.
