While women only make up a fifth of the cycling coach-force, British Cycling report that times are changing
The number of women cycling coaches has jumped an enormous 70% in the last three years, according to numbers announced by British Cycling this week.
Reporting on the success of its ‘women’s strategy’ which launched in 2013, the UK’s cycling governing body is heralding the progress made in bringing an all-time high 1,100 female coaches into the sport.
Of that number, almost half have been trained since the launch of the strategy which also set out a target of getting 1 million more women cycling by 2020.
