Quote
1,000 female cycling champions will be trained to become ride leaders, equipped with the information and know-how to organise group rides on local routes - planned and mapped by them.

A bit like the woman who organises the weekly CTC pub run where I live.  Please give her a million quid :)

Up here we have Scottish Cycling (the sporty one) and Cycling Scotland (the transport/utility/training one)

Scottish Cycling is part of British Cycling (a semi autonomous region).
