It's 'Women's Week' on Cycling Weekly: your guide to the training, tech and inspirational tales of (and by!) cycling's key women

We've got detailed articles on training with the menstrual cycle, a look back at the woman who entered the 1924 edition of the Giro d'Italia, and a dive into 'women-specific geometery' and its relevancy today - plus much, much more!

From 6th-10th March, here at Cycling Weekly we'll be celebrating Women's Week, with International Women's Day this year landing right in the middle and marking the apex of our coverage on Wednesday, 8th March.

We'll be covering a full spectrum of cycling, from the training tips guiding female professionals (and a growing number of amateurs) to inspirational stories of female empowerment - from the women who've taken up cycling in middle age to the racers who forged their own way when the odds were stacked against them.

I’ve been hooked on bikes ever since the age of 12 and my first lap of the Hillingdon Cycle Circuit in the bright yellow kit of the Hillingdon Slipstreamers. For a time, my cycling life centred around racing road and track. 

But that’s since broadened to include multiday two-wheeled, one-sleeping-bag adventures over whatever terrain I happen to meet - with a two-week bikepacking trip from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia being just the latest.

I still enjoy lining up on a start line, though, racing the British Gravel Championships and finding myself on the podium at the enduro-style gravel event, Gritfest in 2022.
