CY­CLING

Llanelli Star - - GOLF -

BYNEA Cy­cling Club’s Tr­ish Butch­ers has been named in Cy­cling UK’s 100 Women in Cy­cling.

She has been in­cluded for be­ing an in­spi­ra­tion to other fe­male mem­bers of the club.

She joins Par­a­lympian Dame Sarah Storey and triple Olympic medal­list Vic­to­ria Pendle­ton in the cy­cling char­ity’s list recog­nis­ing achieve­ments in pro­mot­ing women’s cy­cling.

Tr­ish joined Bynea Cy­cling Club so she could be­come a bet­ter cy­clist, but af­ter notic­ing she was of­ten the only fe­male rider on club runs she set up a women-only ride and What­sApp sup­port group, where women could dis­cuss their con­cerns or plan a ride to­gether. Since then the num­ber of fe­male mem­bers has in­creased.

Head of en­gage­ment He­len Cook said: “It’s an in­cred­i­ble achieve­ment and tes­ti­mony to the tire­less work she’s done to raise the pro­file of women’s cy­cling. Ev­ery woman on our list is an in­cred­i­ble ambassador for women’s cy­cling.”
