The Cycling Has Never Looked So Good show was organised by Herts County Council to inspire more women and girls into leisure cycling as part of the county’s Summer of Cycling programme, and also involved students from Oaklands College.

In the audience were civic dignitaries as well as more than 300 shoppers, friends and family.

County Hall’s cabinet member for public health Councillor Teresa Heritage was on hand to present certificates to winners Adelane Cook from North Herts College and Charlotte Rojewska.

Councillor Heritage said: “What a fantastic show - their creative flair shone through in the designs they created for female cyclists.

“We all know the health benefits that exercise can bring, but we specifically want to encourage more families and individuals to take to the dedicated cycle trails of Hertfordshire and this fashion show has helped to shine a spotlight on leisure cycling for families.”

School Travel Plan adviser Lindsey Day, who co-ordinated the show, added: “Our special thanks to The Galleria, the colleges, our sponsors, suppliers and VIPs who helped to make the fashion show a great success.
