Sudbury’s popular Women on Wheels cycling event is calling on women and girls to get on their bikes again this summer to raise money for St Nicholas Hospice.

Women on Wheels (WoW) Sudbury will start at Acton Village Hall on Sunday, July 21, and cyclists have the choice of completing either a 20-mile or 50-mile route.

The route takes participants through the beautiful countryside around Sudbury and surrounding villages, and the ride is fully marshalled with tea and cake stops along the way.

It is open to women and girls aged eight and over of all abilities.

WoW Sudbury, is one of four WoW events across Suffolk this year and is organised by Abbeycroft Leisure in partnership with Suffolk County Council and St Nicholas Hospice Care.

Tracey Loynds, development director at Abbeycroft Leisure, said: “We are delighted to be hosting our fifth WoW event in Sudbury especially after the success of last year's event, when more than 128 women and girls took part.

“One of the most fulfilling aspects of WoW is seeing the joy on the faces of the women and girls taking part, often rediscovering the pleasure of being on a bike, and this is reflected in much of the positive feedback we received.”

St Nicholas Hospice Care's community fundraiser George Chilvers said: “Now in its fifth year we're delighted to see WoW Sudbury go from strength to strength.

“Over the past five years the event has raised more than £20,000 and has made a huge difference to St Nicholas Hospice Care.”
