Olympic gold medalists Pendleton and Trott spark 'cycling bug' in UK women
London, Sept. 10 (ANI): Women in the UK have caught a cycling bug after cycling's glamour girls Victoria Pendleton and Laura Trott won gold medals in London Olympics.
Startling figures show that cycles sales to women have soared by a whopping 73 percent.
According to the Sun, the rocketing sales were revealed by online retailer Very.co.uk, which has a large female customer base.
"Team GB cleaned up in the Velodrome once again and female cycling heroes like Victoria Pendleton, Laura Trott and Lizzie Armitstead seem to have left a serious legacy - something all the naysayers continually doubted," Sara Lomax, head of seasonal buying for Very.co.uk, said.
"Cycling has obviously become more popular in the UK in recent years but these figures show how the phenomenon has really crossed into the mainstream," Lomax said.
"We sell all sorts of products to young British women, but bikes have never flown out of our depots so quickly, it's great to see," the paper quoted Lomax, as saying. (ANI)
