Pilgrims Hospices – Divas on Wheels
Enjoy the picturesque Kent countryside, great fun and a supportive atmosphere of Kent’s only women’s cycle ride – Divas on Wheels. Get the girls together for a great day out and help us be there for the next family who needs us.
Setting out from The Independent Pedaler in Bridge near Canterbury, you can choose to ride either a 25-mile or 50-mile route through green, rolling countryside on quiet roads.
This year Pilgrims Hospices is backing British Cycling’s Breeze Network campaign to close the gender cycling gap and get one million more women on bikes by 2020! We want to help, inspire and encourage women to choose cycling! We are backing the #OneInAMillion campaign to highlight the safe and accessible options available to women to start cycling, so why not get started with Divas on Wheels!
If you’re new to cycling have no fear, dozens of our special Bike Heroes will join you, leading small groups or offering roadside repairs to anyone who needs it.
Together, we can make a difference. Enjoy a great atmosphere, support along the route and plenty of pampering afterwards as you take part in the county’s only ladies bike ride for charity.
You must be at least 11 years of age to participate in Divas on Wheels and riders under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a participating adult.

Pilgrims helps people facing a terminal diagnosis, and their families, to live well in every moment.
Our work began 35 years ago, with the vision of one village nurse – now our President Ann Robertson. Ann wanted to make a difference for the people in her community facing terminal illness.
Thanks to her devotion, and the help of countless others, today we have over 200 Pilgrims nurses and therapists. Together they support thousands of people in east Kent each year.
