Who did you nominate for the list of influencers?

BikeBiz Women of the Year 2015 launches

BikeBiz has published its first Women of the Year list – celebrating the most influential women from all sectors of UK cycling.

Recognising women from the sport itself to all areas of the industry, plus advocacy bodies, the list is in association with The London Bike Show, with Total Women’s Cycling as Media Partner.

Cycle luminaries like Victoria Pendleton, Aileen McGlynn, Lizzie Armistead and Manon Carpenter are named alongside bike trade bosses like Zyro’s Julie Ellison, Isla Rowntree and Blaze’s Emily Brooke. The list reaches into the worlds of broadcasting and media, including BBC Sport’s Sharon Fuller, The Guardian’s Helen Pidd and Dennis Publishing’s Nicola Bates. 

The front line of the industry – bike retail – is represented too, including Velovixen’s Liz Bingham, Dame Cycling’s Kelli Salone and Pennine Cycles’ Sandra Corcoran, among others.

The full list will be published in a supplement with the March issue of BikeBiz and celebrated this evening (Thursday February 12th) at the London Bike Show’s exhibitor party, taking place at the ExCeL Centre itself. The full list is now available on the links below.

BikeBiz editor Jonathon Harker said: "Back in November last year we asked our readers to nominate the 50 most influential women in cycling and we were overwhelmed with the number of responses – so overwhelmed that we were spurred on to highlight 100 women in the cycle world.

"Congratulations to all the women in our first ever Top 100. These are the ambassadors and role models for the future female leaders of the cycle world."
