Cycle insurance company Worry+Peace recently listed their top 10 UK cycling sites and who should be mentioned but Ordinary Cycling Girl! How lovely! Thank you kindly Worry+Peace, It’s always so nice when someone recognises this blog, gets the reasons behind why I write it and why I love writing it, but to be mentioned alongside some truly brilliant cycling sites is really, really flattering.
It’s…a great way in for women to get a peek into what cycling is like – and women on bikes are under-represented not just in sport, but also out on our streets riding around. – Worry+Peace on OCG
File alongside empowering initiatives like #thisgirlcan – Worry+Peace on OCG
To have Ordinary Cycling Girl mentioned in the same sentence as the wonderful initiative that is #thisgirlcan is extremely flattering. You can check out Simon Munk’s kind words (thank you Simon) and the other brilliant sites mentioned by visiting Worry + Peace.

“We’re all about lifestyle, so this collaboration to develop our creative mantra with other inspiring brands is really exciting,” says Worry+Peace founder, James York. “Paria are a fresh and confident challenger brand in the growing urban cycling market – and we relate to that!”
There’s some really cool designs to choose from. I’ve voted for my favourite. I’m not sure whether I should disclose which one I went for. Oh, go on then – it’s No.3 for me. How about you? Which one do you prefer?
