Girls Go Better by cycle workshop

CTC and Transport for Greater Manchester are working together to get more women cycling
As part of the Girls Go Better By Cycle programme, CTC and Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) are running a Girls Go Better workshop. CTC's Jayne Rodgers explains more.

To celebrate and mark International Women's Day on Sunday 8 March, in Greater Manchester I've been busy working on an exciting project with TfGM called Girls Go Better By Cycle, a programme of activities and events throughout March that will give Mancunian ladies all the information they will need to get out on their bikes and enjoy the early spring sunshine.

To top off all the activity, we will be hosting the Girls Go Better workshop on Tuesday 31 March at the Friends Meeting House in Central Manchester between 6pm and 8.30pm, so register today and come along and find out more. We are inviting prominent and active women around Manchester to be involved, with a short pitch to introduce themselves and what they do, followed by individual breakout sessions for people to come along and find out more. The idea is to showcase some best practice, inform, inspire and to motivate the people that attend.

We held a similar event in Edinburgh last year and it was a great success, so come along and find out more about women and cycling in Greater Manchester.

The panellists are:

  • Liz Clarke - Bike Right
  • Martine Tommis - active member of local cycling club Team Glow
  • Becki Morris - Women's Network Project Officer for British Cycling
  • Heather Bamforth - the Racing Chance Foundation
  • Gabriele Schliwa - Manchester Cycling Lab
  • Kathy England - the University of Manchester BUG
  • Hannah Reynolds – Cycling Journalist
  • Rosslyn Colderley - Sustrans Regional Director North West
  • Jayne Rodgers - CTC Inclusive Cycling development officer North West
  • Anna Smith – CTC Community Club Officer
  • Rachel Scott - TfGM Cycling Manager
