  1. This is a fantastic post. It’s great to highlight women’s cycling. I am starting to feel that we are just starting a new era where we are starting to be taken more seriously. Although there’s still a long way to go in top level sport, there’s certainly a change starting from the bottom up.
    I also write a blog aimed specifically for women cyclists, although it does have a reasonable male readership as well. I’d love to join up with you on your project.
    I’ve added my blog address below.

      Hi Marcia. I’m so glad you liked the post. Your website looks great – what an exciting challenge you have coming up! I would love to include you in the Women on Bikes page if you could send me a picture and a bit about you then I will add you in and create a page for you which can link to your website. Also, I noticed you are involved in a club in your area, it would be great to include this in the Recommended Cycle Clubs project if you are able to get involved. You’ll find all the details of what to do on the project page at You can email me at Best of luck with your JOGLE attempt – I look forward to hearing all about it!

    I’m male and loved this post. The more people cycling for all purposes the better – and that means we need women cycling too. I wonder if women cycling may actually help lead the way to a better transport culture – we men, after all, are more prone to Lycra and weekend toys than practical transport.

      I’m so glad you liked it! You may well have a point there. My husband and I are both lifelong cyclists. We both ride for fitness and sport and have road bikes and lycra cycle kit. He is more inclined to get in the car when it comes to transport. This is where I think a major point is often missed – it is still women who tend to do the bulk of the childcare, so if we want to get more women to cycle, we need infrastructure which is also safe for children to ride their bikes on.
