For the first time in its 145-year history, Cycling UK has a female chair of trustees, chief executive and 50:50 split between female and male.

The charity now has a workforce made up of 58% women, with Sarah Mitchell as chief executive.

The two new appointees to the senior leadership team are Katie Legg as of commercial director and Sarah McMonagle as director of external affairs, looking after Cycling UK’s campaigns, public affairs, communications and marketing teams.

Legg joins the cycling charity from Mental Health UK, where she was director, strategy and partnerships for more than four years to take up the role. She will be responsible for the charity’s membership, fundraising and commercial partnerships.

McMonagle will join Cycling UK in June from the countryside charity CPRE, where she is acting director of campaigns and policy. She will assume a new role at Cycling UK as director of external affairs in June, 

Katie Legg said: “There is such a variety of reasons why people want to go cycling now, including reducing their carbon footprint and saving money. I look forward to growing Cycling UK’s offer to everyone so that whatever reason we cycle, we cycle safe, have fun and make the most of the amazing cycle routes the UK has.”

Sarah McMonagle said: “Cycling UK already provides a strong voice for those who want to drive less and cycle more, and I’m looking forward to joining the charity to help that voice grow even louder. Whether we live in towns, cities or the countryside, encouraging more people to cycle is a no-brainer in a climate and cost of living crisis.”
