Without the support of so many people, London Women’s Racing would not be possible. Thank you to the clubs and organisers that are hosting us this year and allowing us to use their races.
In addition, all the site set up, logistics, support and prizes would not be possible without our fantastic sponsors.

Nichola is a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, and has worked within sports injury for over ten years. She completed a masters degree in Australia and in the last four years has focused on cycling and triathlon, treating both amateur and professional athletes.

YELLOW JERSEY INSURANCE
Yellow Jersey are a family run insurance company with cycling at their heart. Known for their excellent collaborations with artist Ritch Mitch and insightful blogs that talk about way more than just bike insurance, do check them out here. They say:
“We have really enjoyed working with LWR racing over the past two years and cannot wait to follow the 2017 season. LWR never fail to impress with their forward thinking, progressive nature of getting more women in the Greater London onto bicycle and racing. Here’s to a successful year ahead.”
We are a cycling and triathlon coaching centre based in the Crystal Palace national sports stadium in SE London. Closely connected to the sports injury clinic, our performance centre is the training hub for clients and club riders. Turbo Beat, our infamous indoor training with DJ mixes, is also based in the sports centre campus. And from here, we ride out into the lanes of Kent and Surrey every weekend.
Coaching is at the heart of all we do – from coached rides and camps to fitness tests and training plans – it’s what drives Paul Mill and his team. We don’t train women, we train athletes. Whilst some of our women have been winning events such as the Transcontinental Race and National/World track titles, others have been entering events for the first time, pursuing fitness goals and coaching charity riders and youth groups. “Mostly it is just finding out how to do it and then getting out there and giving it a shot.” (Nicola Toms, mum, beginner to HSS Aprire race team in 2 years)
We are all athletes with elitecycling, and proudly so.
Revolutionary race wear for cyclists. No drag, No voodoo, No pins – No brainer!
veloToze™ shoe covers are made of a flexible, lightweight material that is waterproof, windproof and aerodynamic. Because of the unique, patented design, they don’t have vulnerability points like zippers or velcro. They are also light and compact, folding up to the size of a spare tube, which allows them to easily fit in a jersey pocket or saddle bag. Look for them on the feet of many experienced time trialists and racers.
