nuun gets behind brand new networking event taking place in June

Date set for new BikeBiz Women of the Year event

Building on the success of its popular Women in Cycling project, BikeBiz is launching a new Women of the Year event this June.

The BikeBiz Women of the Year drinks reception is an informal networking event for anyone working in the UK cycle business. As well as providing a forum for peer to peer networking, the Women of the Year event will also see a number of prizes given out to individuals for their outstanding achievements.

The BikeBiz Women of the Year event will be held on Thursday June 25th at Look Mum No Hands cycle bar and cafe at Old Street and is open to all – women and men. Tickets are available to purchase now, costing just £35 (plus VAT) to attend, including drinks and nibbles. The event starts at 3pm.

nuun has signed up to back the event, becoming an individual award sponsor. The active hydration specialist was established by competitive cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts and created the original hydration tablet.

Lizzy Moxey of nuun enthused: "nuun UK are delighted to be sponsoring the Bike Biz Women of the Year event at the funky Look Mum No Hands Cafe and support the growing female participation in a typically male dominated sport. It’s great to be part of inspiring more women to get out on their bikes, be active and hopefully stay hydrated by nuun along the way!"

BikeBiz editor Jonathon Harker added: "It’s no secret that women have very much been in the minority in the cycle industry but happily this is beginning to change, with more women in key roles. The BikeBiz Women of the Year list was launched to celebrate these influential women in the cycling industry, the sport itself, advocacy and beyond. There was an overwhelming response to the list, prompting us to keep up the momentum, take the next step in the project and launch the BikeBiz Women of the Year networking event and awards, open to women and men alike."

A limited number of sponsorship opportunities are available. Contact Richard Setters at or on 01992 535647 to find out more.
