On Thursday 22nd February, Manchester University will be hosting ‘Reclaim the Night’ at 7pm, departing from Owen’s Park Halls. This year we have decided to go and support all the women marching through the night, with our own hand made signs! In aid of this, we are also doing a silent auction and selling of this limited edition screen printed Lady Pedal suffragette tote bag. It’s the only one, so extra special.
All proceeds are going to a local charity supporting women who have suffered sexual violence (Charity TBC). We don’t get a penny, nada, zilch!
What we ask of you wonderful people, is to bid as much as you can or if you are flat broke (like some of us, damn it austerity!), then please share, tweet, Instagram, yell, cry or carrier pigeon this beautiful tote bag.
To send your bid, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Auction winner will be revealed on International Women’s Day: 8th March 2018
Thanks a million,
The Lady Pedal Team

To celebrate international women’s day, we are running a life drawing session that will be directed by a professional artist, helping you perfect your skills! It will also be a chance to have a conversation about the barriers in women cycling and how it affects you.
Save the date: Tuesday 13th March 2018 at Sandbar, 120 Grosvenor St, Manchester M1 7HL
Due to the nature of the session, it will be women only and if you identify as one, then great come along!
This is also a fundraising event to help us raise money for our annual festival in September.
Get tickets on Eventbrite here!
Please do come along, we’re a friendly bunch who really want to get to know more female cyclists, and without you wonderful women, we couldn’t hold these events!
So, see you there!

After the success of our second annual festival, we’ve decided to get into organising Monthly Rides for everyone who expressed their interest at the events along the year and at the festival!
We will be meeting at the Coffee Cranks cafe in Alexandra Park at 11am on Saturday 28th of October, having a coffee and checking in with everyone with an aim to be riding off at 11:30!
We are planning to ride along the Mersey Valley and Stockport Way all the way to Tandem Coffee House in Stockport, SK1 1JQ. We’ll then take you back to Alex Park for about 3pm.
The ride will be about 7miles each way and the pace will be leisurely. We want to encourage women who don’t usually feel confident cycling long-ish distances to join in and we will make sure everyone feels included. If you want any information or feel a bit worried about any part of the ride please just get in touch so we can arrange something to accommodate you.
All genders and abilities welcomed!
Our friends at CycleHack Mcr are putting on a jam packed weekend of cycling related talks, activities and CycleHacking, getting the people of Manchester to take a DIY approach to help reduce the barriers to cycling!
On Friday, they have their launch night kicking off at 6pm with an evening of guest speakers and inspiring talks, and just £6 and Lady Pedal will be there too! Get tickets here!
For the weekend events, please register your FREE place on CycleHack’s Eventbrite page!
If you’re already going, GREAT! But do come down to Lady Pedal Festival to try out and test your ideas, we’d love to help!
For more info, please check out their Cycle Hack website!
This September, we’re heading back to Alexandra Park for the second ever Lady Pedal festival! And we want to make it bigger and better – which means we need some funding!
On the 1st of August at the Old Abbey Taphouse, the Lady Pedal team is getting together to cook you guys a THREE COURSE VEGETARIAN MEAL!
Arrive for 7ish and the first course will be served at 7.30pm in a buffet style. The Old Abbey bar will be open too for that cheeky Tuesday evening pint.
All profits will go into making this Lady Pedal festival one to remember!
