Women’s Cycle Forum (part of Women on Wheels day).
Women have been behind some of the most interesting developments in cycling in recent years, from cycle campaigns to sport, all-abilities cycling and even leisure rides. Whether your interest is campaigning, racing, family riding, ‘cycle chic’ or just getting on your bike, come along to meet the women who are already making things happen, and come away with the ideas and inspiration to do more. The WCF is an attempt to distil all the interesting parts of your average cycling conference (meeting great people, plotting in corridors, debating the issues) without the parts where someone in a suit reads their powerpoint slides at you. The format will be a semi-structured panel discussion with a series of round-tables, giving everyone a chance to have their say, as well as be inspired by our speakers. We hope you will come away with a clutch of new contacts and the inspiration to make something happen, from a bike ride to a national campaign.
The speakers are: Sue Abbot (Freedom Cyclist), Rachel Aldred (LCC policy forum), Claire Connachan (Belles on Bikes), Sara Dorman (Pedal on Parliament), Sally Guyer (Cambridge Raincoat Company), Polly Jarman (Play on Pedals), Jo Holtan (Cycle Hack) and Jayne Rodgers (CTC Inclusive Cycling development officer).
