These are images from a fantastic event organised by Scottish Cycling in Pollok Park in Glasgow: “Women’s Learn to Ride Biking Festival”.
Developing Mountain Biking in Scotland, Forestry Commission Scotland and Backbone worked together to teach all the women featured below to ride. Many of them had never even sat on a bike before.
The aim was to encourage women to get involved, feel comfortable around bikes, get more information on accessing their local woodlands and start their journey to become a life-long cyclist.
Sir Chris Hoy they most definitely were NOT – but their enthusiasm and energy was inspirational!
