100 Women in Cycling
We will, of course, profile the many existing female cyclists, such as our own Vice-President cycle tourer Josie Dew and ground-breaking riders like Lady Harberton, Dervla Murphy, and Rachel Atherton, and the women who are helping break down barriers to women riding elsewhere in the world, such as Shannon Galpin, who works to enable women to take up cycling in Afghanistan, and Ayesha McGowan, aiming to become the first black female professional bike racer in US, as well as ordinary but extraordinary members of the public who act as role models for other riders.
Then there is the work of Cycling UK's own inspirational volunteers to highlight too, including several long-standing female Member Group Secretaries, ride leaders, tour leaders, event organisers and many others.
We will be celebrating 100 Women in Cycling by profiling the many women riders and supporters of cycling, both within and outside of Cycling UK. The 100 Women in Cycling will be women who inspire others to take up the activity but who may not be well-known by the world at large.
