Women on Wheels in Kensington and Chelsea
Sat 4 June 2016, 10:30 – 13:00 BST
We have designed a new cycle ride to celebrate the amazing women that lived and worked in the borough. The scenic 7-mile route takes us to key landmarks, institutions and homes of prominent women. Some of the women are household names such as George Eliot, Agatha Christie and Emmeline Pankhurst, but you'll also be hearing about lesser known heroines such as Dame Margaret Dawson of the Voluntary Police Force and Dora Meeson of the Women's Freedom League.
The route goes via quiet roads and the tour is conducted at a relaxed pace. All abilities are welcome and the ride starts and ends at a Santander Docking Station for those wishing to hire a bicycle for the ride.
