Cycling UK in Scotland

Ride Like Billie Fleming! - 27 Jul 2015 - Blog
Women around the UK have been 'riding like Billie' throughout 2015. Next week, the epic tour reaches Scotland, where Cycling UK 's Suzanne Forup and Cycling UK's Bike Belles will be riding to honour Billie Fleming. Find out how you can get involved too.

 
 
Two years ago, Suzanne Forup, Cycling UK ’s Assistant Head of Development, wrote about the challenges of getting ‘back on her bike’ with her son, a toddler at the time. Now she is helping to set up family cycling groups and even more Bike Belles groups to encourage more people in Scotland to cycle.

 
 
CTC's Assistant Head of Development, Suzanne Forup, likes a challenge, particularly if it involves organising part of a cycling festival, cake and books.

 
 
After a successful launch at the Edinburgh Festival of Cycling last year, the trailblazing Women on Wheels programme - a series of women-led cycling events - is back for 2015 and is bigger than ever.

 
 
Despite 'safety' concerns by officials, over 4,000 riders took part in the Pedal on Parliament ride in Edinburgh, while nearly 500 joined a Space for Cycling ride in Sheffield. Hundreds more joined rides in Newcastle and Aberdeen on 25 April.

What started as a one-off flash ride on the Scottish Parliament is now rapidly becoming an institution and part of the Scottish cycling calendar. Sally Hinchcliffe, one of the founding organisers, explains why this year's ride is just as important as the first.
