Women across Greater Manchester are being encouraged to get on their bikes in March with a series of female-friendly cycling events across the region.
With men currently outnumbering women four to one in the UK for cycling to work, Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM), with the help of its partners, has launched Women on Wheels (WoW) to help narrow the gap.
The month-long celebration of cycling takes place throughout March and includes more than 50 group rides, social gatherings, art workshops and taster sessions for women and girls.
Women’s cycling groups across Greater Manchester will help run the group rides, which range from gentle traffic-free leisure cycles to challenging hill climbs, with something to suit everybody.
There’s also the chance to try out the Manchester Velodrome track, train to become a ‘ride leader’ and learn bike maintenance basics with other women.
If you want to get involved, there is a full list of events at the TfGM website.
