Women's Cycle Forum Scotland Launch
Sat 11 June 2016, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
Join us for the launch of the Women's Cycle Forum, Scotland - a new membership organisation to celebrate and promote women's cycling and to encourage women to take a leading role in cycling in all its forms. Since 2014, the Women's Cycle Forum has arranged occasional promotional and networking events in Scotland, and run a lively and supportive online community for women who cycle in Scotland and beyond. Now we're taking the next step and becoming an organisation that will encourage women to cycle, and make make sure women's voices are heard in the world of cycling.
Supported by Cycling UK Scotland, and funded by the Women’s Fund for Scotland, the launch will be an inspirational celebration of the diversity of women in cycling. To kickstart this exciting, new phase the Forum founders, Suzanne Forup and Sally Hinchcliffe, have invited Jools Walker to launch the organisation in great style!
Jools Walker is an East London blogger aka Velo-City Girl. In between regular blogging, Jools presents on ITV4's The Cycle Show and can often be found on TV sofas discussing and debating bike culture. Her blogs have a keen focus on styling and cycle chic culture, as well as iconic event reportage. With a foot in blogging and media already - Jools's all-round reach classes her as a highly influential woman in the cycling world. Trendy, active and current, Jools is one to watch!
Come along to hear Jools, meet the group of women spearheading the organisation and find out how you can join!
