Leontien's Ladies Ride expanding

Former professional Leontien Zijlaard-Van Moorsel from the Netherlands started the Leontien's Ladies Ride in Den Bosch, 2005. It quickly became a huge success. The limit of 7500 riders was reached in 2006, so a parallel ride was organised in Zwolle for 2007. Even that event had 4500 participants in its first year. Now, in 2008, a third ride will be put together in Rotterdam, on July 13.

The ride for women from eight to 88 years of age will be part of the city's 'La City' festivities. The quadruple Olympic champion, who retired right after the Games in Athens, will hold a press conference on March 3, together with husband Michael Zijlaard. Then, they will present more details, such as the route for the Rotterdam ride.

The ride in Zwolle takes place on June 8, 2008 and the ride in s'Hertogenbosch on September 21, 2008. More info at www.leontiensladiesride.nl.
