“RECLAIM THE ROAD”
On March 7, 2010 LCC ‘Reclaim the Road’ ride to mark International Women’s Day
Now an annual event, our women’s bike ride is female-focused, but not exclusively for women, taking riders around some of London’s best routes, encompassing landmarks which have particular significance to women’s rights and empowerment. Celebrating the great diversity of female cyclists in our capital and encouraging those who don’t already cycle, this event will focus on the independence and empowerment that cycling can provide to all women, particularly to those from backgrounds that wouldn’t ordinarily advocate such modes of transport. With over 5,000 participants in LCC rides annually, we continually strive to boost numbers of female cyclists; it is great for women’s health, fitness, well-being, fun and freedom. We want to encourage women to give it a try and see what they can achieve!
The ride starts at the Shortwave Cinema in Bermondsey Square @ 2PM and follows a route mostly South of the river incorporating existing bike routes, London parks, bridges across the Thames and a surprising array of South London places of interest. We’ll be finishing up at the Shortwave Cinema in Bermondsey Square, where there will be nibbles and entertainment.
We will be documenting the ride through video footage and a post-ride podcast.
