We’re delighted to be involved in these upcoming events to celebrate & encourage more women to participate in cycling!
Women & Cycling Conference, Thursday 4th May
This event will no doubt be an informative and inspiring day for anyone interested in cycling! It’ll be a great chance to share and celebrate cycling experiences, look at new cycling developments and opportunities, develop networks, and discuss how to increase and widen participation.
We’re offering the ‘Dr Bike’ repair sessions over lunch as well as holding discussions on engaging women from refugee and asylum seeker communities, linked to our pilot project funded by Leeds Community Foundation.
Bike ride to the conference!
We’re riding the Cycle Superhighway from Leeds to Bradford on the morning of the conference. The 10 mile route is mostly on segregated cycle paths, and we’ll be taking it at a nice, easy pace. If you haven’t tried it already, it’ll give you a chance to check out the superhighway with experienced riders. Everyone who joins will also receive some bike freebies, kindly provided by City Connect!
Meet 7.45am at our workshop for an 8am grand depart. More info on our facebook page, or drop us an email if you have any questions or want to make sure we don’t leave without you!
Bike Maintenance courses for women
Due to increasing interest, we’ve decided to run some Bike Maintenance courses for women, taught by female mechanics. We’ve set the following dates, booking will shortly be available via our training courses page:
- Intro to Bike Maintenance on Tuesday 27th June 5-9pm
- Advanced Bike Maintenance Saturday 1st – Sunday 2nd July 10am-6pm
Hope to see you at one or all of these… Happy cycling everyone!

Good to have more events to encourage more people to start cycling as a lifetsyle!
