As more and more ladies are taking to two wheels to get around town, Evans Cycles are demystifying the bike buying experience and hosting a series of Ladies Nights at various stores throughout the UK this May.

The evenings will focus on women’s bikes and equipment, with handy advice from experts, maintenance demonstrations and an exclusive 10% discount on the night. The first 50 through the door at each store will also receive a goody bag containing riding essentials. There will also be a competition with £200 worth of Evans Cycles vouchers to be won at each store, plus Evans have teamed up with cycle kit specialist Pearl Izumi to offer you the chance to be kitted out in Pearl Izumi cycling wear up to the value of £140. Check out the website for details.

“Cycling is a great way to keep fit. It’s a self regulated low impact exercise meaning you can ride at what ever pace you want," says Evans Cycles fitness expert Claire Beaumont. “Cycling is a great way to exercise and easy to fit into your schedule, you can ride to work, ride at the weekend with the family or even go cycling with a friend and use it as an excuse to socialise".
