September 17th 2016 –
A CELEBRATION OF WOMEN’S CYCLING FOR ALL AGES AND ABILITIES
Bored of traffic, low on cash, or want to take back control of your commute? – Why not get pedalling?!
In a city as flat as Manchester, cycling is often the quickest, most direct and cheapest way to get around the city, so what’s stopping you?
Many women feel unsafe or nervous about cycling on the roads – rush hour traffic, dark streets and the risk of punctures can be intimidating…
It’s time to take back control in a day of WORKSHOPS, MUSIC, PERFORMANCES and FREEBIES provided by a collaboration of Manchester cycling groups and artists.
ACTS AND ACTIVITIES …..
Spokes – Bicycle Dancing
SheChoir – Women’s choir
Jo Po – Spoken Word
Jez Sings Things – Musical Comedy Act
Anna Percy – Poetry
Jess Megson – Acoustic
Aeve Ribbons – Poetry
With introductions and musical interludes from our fabulous MC Mica Sinclair!
This festival will act as a launchpad to promote a supportive cycling network, specifically for women to:
– Encourage women from all ages and walks of life to cycle
– Promote the value of cycling in bringing communities closer
– Teach members of the community to cycle and/or basic maintenance skills
COME GET INVOLVED!
