The number of women who are members of British Cycling has passed the 20,000 mark for the first time in the national organisation's history.

BC reports that the number of women that have signed up for membership has grown dramatically since British cyclists' success in the 2012 Olympic Games, and has been further boosted by GB's performance at the 2016 Games in Rio.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
