HALF THE ROAD, 10.00-12.00, Sun 18th May - Free
The passion, pitfalls & power of women’s professional cycling. US pro cyclist Kathryn Bertine poses a simple question: When it comes to equality in the world of professional cycling, why aren’t the women receiving half the road?
Last year, Kathryn joined forces with Olympic & World Champion cyclists Emma Pooley and Marianne Vos, and Ironman World Champion Chrissie Wellington, to form Le Tour Entier campaign to petition Tour de France organisers to allow women’s professional cycling teams to compete in the Tour.

When & Where
Cycle To The Cinema
The cinema where it all started is the lovely Moorland Discovery Centre in the woods at Longshaw Estate very close to the Fox House Pub, some 5 miles outside of Sheffield on the border between Derbyshire and South Yorkshire. The wooden building, insulated with sheep's wool in the walls, is cosy, pretty, and kitted out with a decent sound system, projector and screen. It seats around 50 people.
The evenings usually start at 8pm giving you time to grab a bite to eat after work and cycle to the cinema. You will normally be able to order tea/ coffee and cake when booking your tickets so don't worry about low blood-sugar. Things will wrap up between 9.30pm and 10pm giving you time to freewheel home and jump in the shower before bed.
...et voila - exercise, entertainment and a social, all in the same evening.
In case you are wondering, yes we will allow you in if you don't come by bike, but we hope you'll enter into the spirit of things.
