Join Women’s Cycle Forum Scotland for an evening with World Bike Girl, Ishbel Taromsari. Ishbel has been cycling the world solo for 2 and a half years and has pedalled across 16 countries, documenting her trip along the way.

She’ll be telling us about her incredible journey, from her scariest miles – cycling along Syrian border in 2014 where she was taken to the Syrian Revolutionunnamed Command Centre – to her hardest miles, which was crossing the Andes mountains from Chile into Bolivia reaching 5000 metres.

Ishbel uses the bicycle as a platform to promote human and animal rights, shining the spotlight on the plight of both animals and people in challenging environments. Before cycling the world she was a velodrome track sprinter for Iranian Women’s Team and a velodrome sprinter for Glasgow Life & a Scottish Institute of Sport Athlete.

The event is free to attend, but we would be grateful for donations towards the costs of the evening.
