A woman from Watford has been named in Cycling UK’s 100 Women in Cycling 2022 as part of her work to encourage women to get on their bikes.

Kate Jenkins, 64, has been honoured for her efforts to encourage more women to try out cycling as well as improving equality and diversity in cycling.

Part of this work includes setting up the not-for-profit Watford Cycle Hub 10 years ago, with the aim of making cycling accessible for all.

Kate said: “Watford Cycle Hub’s focus is using cycling as the vehicle to make a difference within the community.”

Cycling Minister Jesse Norman, at the Department for Transport, said: “It’s fantastic to see so many inspirational women encouraging others to cycle. Some are cycling because it’s so healthy, some because it’s quick and easy, some to protect the environment. Whatever the reason, they should be extremely proud of what they have achieved.”
