Cycletta - the UK’s leading series of women only bike rides set in stunning, family friendly host venues. VeloVixen is Cycletta's official cycling equipment retailer at their series of events across the country during summer / autumn 2012. We will be appearing with a full range of stock, and look forward to meeting you there. You can still sign up for events in Cornwall, Warwickshire, Brighton, Cheshire and the New Forest at www.cycletta.co.uk.

Tour de Force - an amazing, inspirational event, in aid of the hugely worthy William Wates Memorial Trust. The Tour de Force brings together amateur cyclists with a wealth of stories and experience behind them to do part - or in a few unbelievable cases all - of the full Tour de France course. They not only ride the actual route just a week in advance of Bradley Wiggins, Mark Cavendish and co, but they also raise enormous amounts for a great cause. We are in awe.

Breeze Bike Rides - new national network of bike rides for women from British Cycling. British Cycling have backed Breeze generously to create a nationwide network of groups and rides for women of all standards. We fully support this great drive to get more women onto the best form of transport! See more on their website at www.breezebikerides.com.

Chloe Hall - Photographer and Cycle Tour Leader - Chloe is one of the more inspirational VeloVixens around - not satisfied with her amazing range of photographic abilities (stunning landscapes, portraits, weddings, you name it) and heading regular spinning classes in London, she also leads unforgettable cycling trips for all abilities. She's currently taking bookings for her 2nd-9th June 2013 trip to the 'Classic Cols of the Pyrenees'. We urge you to look at her photos at www.chloehall.co.uk. If you've been inspired by your riding this summer, seriously think about going that bit further and taking a place on her awesome trip - don't be put off it you're not a seasoned cyclist - read more on this link...

Fitzrovia Bicycles is an independent bike shop located in the heart of the west end of London. They have been particularly generous to us in lending us a selection of their excellent Dutch ladies bikes (ladies bikes from Holland rather than bikes for Dutch ladies...), and we love their knowledge, spirit and attitude both to bikes and to customers. We don't sell bikes, but they do - and they do it really well. You can see more at www.fitzroviabicycles.com.

Brompton are simply the most famous makers of folding bikes in the world. And with good reason. A tour around their astonishing West London factory will reassure you that design skills and old fashioned craftsmanship are alive and well in the Capital, and that small British businesses can produce wonderful goods and thrive. We can't get enough of them. Learn more at www.brompton.co.uk
