Talk Tuesday November 6th

Aneela McKenna – 100 Years of Women in Cycling

Cycling has long been associated with the emancipation of women – from the suffragette days of bikes n’ bloomers to the modern day revolution of women on mountain bikes. In this session, Aneela McKenna from Go Where Scotland, mountain bike guide and adventurist celebrates the legacy of ‘bicycling for ladies! She’ll take you on a journey of bikes and their role in women’s emancipation. In the spirit of the suffragette movement and penny farthings, she will share her personal stories and sisterhood giggles, and her passion for the simple act of riding bikes.

Doors open at 7pm for refreshments. Talk 7.30-8.30pm. Tickets £5 each.

Bookings via Eventbrite (booking fee applies)or by calling or e-mailing us to reserve a ticket.
