NEW FOR 2024 Femme Cheshire!
For a number of years, Velo29 have supported the brilliant Yorkshire Lass Sportive. In 2023, we created the all female Femme Sportive which despite the brutal rain, was a brilliant day out and will be back in 2024.
Whilst we get really good Female participation in our open Sportives we recognise that there are boundaries for some women in what can be perceived as a male-dominated area of the Sport. With this in mind and with the success of Femme we were immediately convinced that adding a Femme Cheshire to the 2024 Calendar was the right thing to do.
The event will use the excellent Apollo Buckingham University Campus as an HQ from which we are soon out onto glorious Cheshire Roads. Many of you will be amazed at how great these routes are! Hardly a car in sight as we twist through these delightful Cheshire lanes. There are fewer potholes than in the Cheshire Cat too!
By design the route airs on the flatter side, there are lumps but really nothing serious, especially on the Short and Medium.
The route signs are brilliant, the feeds well stocked and the support on hand when you need it. A lovely medal, a BBQ sausage bun and a chilled alkoholfrei await you back in Crewe at the Finish line.
