Cycle Sisters and the Women of Colour Cycling Collective co-organised an inspiring cycling time trial event that saw 35 women take to the road circuit at Lee Valley VeloPark.


For many participants, it was their first experience of a time trial, offering a unique opportunity to push their limits, set personal bests, and earn a medal to commemorate the occasion.





The event was marked by determination, camaraderie, and celebration. The atmosphere was electric as participants, supporters, and organisers gathered to witness and cheer on the cyclists. The day's highlights included the announcement of the top three finishers in both the five-mile and ten-mile categories.
