The LCC Women’s Freedom Ride is set to take place on 5 March, the Sunday before International Women’s Day. Hundreds have already signed up to this ride for women and their allies to pedal around central London and have a blast – but also to highlight the gender gap in cycling in London and lack of provision for women to cycle.
The evidence is clear that women won’t cycle in numbers until they have protected, safe-feeling routes that suit them, and that when you create the conditions for women to cycle, that unlocks cycling for many others as well – including the elderly, children and people with disabilities. It would transform cycling in London into a form of everyday, healthy mass transport. But until women feel good cycling in London, we’re doomed to a car-dependent city.
The ride is open to all who identify as women or non-binary and their allies. Accompanied children are welcome too. It starts in central London at 11.30am and the ride will take about an hour – full details available when you register below.
