Boudica

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.
