Divas on Wheels
Picturesque countryside, great fun and a supportive atmosphere are just some of the things to expect for the Divas On Wheels women only cycle ride.
It’s back for 2014 on Sunday 6 July!
Setting out from Barham cycle shop Biketart near Canterbury, women can choose to ride either a 25 mile or 50 mile route through the countryside. Dozens of experienced riders take part as our special Bike Heros for the day leading small groups or offering roadside repairs and assistance to anybody who needs it.
Strength in numbers for female riders
Pilgrims regional fundraising manager, Deborah Kellond, explains: “We had a lot of positive feedback after the first Divas on Wheels event, so we are really excited it’s back this year.
“We were extremely fortunate to have the support of so many individuals and businesses. Our cyclists really responded to the all-female environment and we tried to create a lively atmosphere with lots of treats for taking part. This year will be no exception.”

Choose from two routes
Cyclists can choose between a shorter route (25 miles) taking them through villages including Bridge, Bossingham, Stelling Minnis, Rhodes Minnis, Lyminge, and Elham before returning to Barham.
Or for those wanting a longer challenge (50 miles) there is a route which winds through Waltham, the Pilgrims Way, a refreshment stop at Pilgrims Hospice Ashford, Aldington, Brabourne and Postling before rejoining the shorter route at Lyminge.
As riders return, The Divas Village offers them the chance for a well earned massage, while a hairdressing team will restyle helmet flattened hair. A barbecue, refreshments, lots of retail therapy and some wonderful raffle prizes.
