Are you tired of the old hand-wringing debate about why ‘women don’t cycle’ – usually conducted by male cyclists with reference to their non-cycling partners? Would you like to hear about the issues that matter from the women themselves who are doing something about them? Would you like to meet women who are passionate about cycling in all its forms, and make connections right across the cycling world? Would you like to come away inspired to change something yourself, in ways that you hadn’t considered before? If so, then – regardless of your gender – the Women’s Cycle Forum is for you.
Held as part of the Edinburgh Festival of Cycling, the WCF is an attempt to distil all the interesting parts of your average cycling conference (meeting great people, plotting in corridors, debating the issues) without the parts where someone in a suit reads their powerpoint slides at you. The format will be a semi-structured panel discussion with a series of round-tables, giving everyone a chance to have their say, as well as be inspired by our speakers. We hope you will come away with a clutch of new contacts and the inspiration to make something happen, from a bike ride to a national campaign.
