Cyclists will have the chance to keep up with Olympic star Victoria Pendleton during a charity ride at Woburn Abbey in June.

The Action for Children charity is encouraging female cyclists to take part in The Human Race Women’s Only Cycletta at the Abbey on Sunday, June 29.

Olympic gold medal champion Victoria Pendleton will be leading the pack and fellow riders will have the opportunity to meet her and other experts for advice ranging from fitness and nutrition to looking like a champion during and after exercise.

Action for Children’s Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire fundraiser, Emma Lawrence, said: “Set in the stunning grounds of the ancestral seat of the Duke of Bedford, this event is the perfect challenge for women riders of all abilities, with three distance options of 20km, 40km or 70km.

“After completing the course, you can relax and rejuvenate in the revitalize tent where free massages, facials and stretching are on offer. Entry to the estate is free for friends and family, so bring them along to what promises to be a fun-filled day.

“The funds you raise will help us continue our vital work with vulnerable children and young people in the local area, and across the UK.”

Cyclists are asked to pay a registration fee of £25 and raise a minimum of £250 in sponsorship.
