VeloVixen Women's Cycling Hub

It's that time of the year again! We'll be heading once again to NEC Cycle Show to host our Women's Cycling Hub. This time, we'll be joining forces with British Cycling's HSBC UK Breeze to make this year's event even better than ever! There will be inspirational talks, panels and discussions from extraordinary cycling women. This year, the theme will be inclusivity - however amazing the speakers, they'll explain how they got into cycling and came to love it.
