Inspired by the visit from the Women’s Tour, the Women’s Eastern Racing League was set up in 2014 to form a focus for women’s cycle racing in the Eastern Region. The aim of the league is to encourage more people to organise races for women, to encourage more women and girls to race, and encourage women and girls to support the local races.

Continuing the success of 2015 and 2016, we have two leagues; the Road League – which will include both road and criterium races, and Time Trial League – featuring a variety of time trials. We have two competitions in the time trial league – the standard league and novice league. Our novice league is for riders with a 10mile pb of slower than 26mins and no specialist equipment is allowed – just a road bike!

If you’ve been inspired to take up the sport by The Women’s Tour, this is the place to begin.
