Regrettably, we have had to cancel our Boudica Women’s Road Race on 9 June 2019 due to the number of entries falling short of what is required to ensure a safe (and enjoyable!) race.
We would like to thank all who did enter and also everyone who shared / retweeted our messages on social media.
The reaction had been fantastic but with the cicle classic on the same date It was always going to be a challenge to secure enough entries.
In C. AD60 Boudica, Queen of the Celtic Iceni, led an uprising against the occupying Roman forces in Camulodunum (Colchester), which was the capital of Roman Britain at the time. Boudica’s Celtic revolt was victorious and she burnt the town to the ground. As an integral part of Colchester’s history Boudica is still celebrated in the town and her feat is recognised globally. We’re hoping this historic uprising will inspire riders in the Boudica Women’s Road Race to escape the forces of the peloton in their bid for victory.
