A spotlight on women’s cycling

The 24th of July marks an important date in women's cycling. Just hours before the Tour de France arrives in Paris, the best female cyclists will take to the streets of the city to battle it out in a fast, frenetic and technically demanding race, watched by millions of fans.

For as long as it takes 126 of the best female riders in the world to complete 89 kilometres, on a 7km course taking in the Champs-Élysées and the Arc de Triomphe, all eyes will be on the women’s sport. This great race is a chance for the world to see the calibre, tenacity and talent of the women’s pro peloton and to celebrate this event we have produced a special edition t-shirt and cap, available to buy now.

From safety to spectacle: the secret history of women’s cycling

Four inspiring women petitioned, fought and campaigned for a women’s Tour de France. Their actions shone a light on women’s cycling and united a community of women cyclists around the world. But Marianne Vos, Chrissie Wellington, Kathryn Bertine and Emma Pooley weren’t the first women to stand up for the female cause, many went before them.
