Let’s celebrate the role of bicycles in emancipating women. There’s a talk, an optional bike tour of the city, with interesting stories aplenty along the way. Finished off with a celebratory afternoon tea.
Women only event
'We raise a clarion call to all women cyclists to join us for an afternoon of pedal power, celebrating the role of the bicycle in emancipating women and the legacy of ‘bicycling for ladies.’ From the suffragette days of bikes ‘n’ bloomers to the modern day revolution of women on mountain bikes.
In the spirit of the suffragette movement and penny farthings, Aneela McKenna and Lynne Armstrong will share sisterhood giggles, personal stories and their passion for riding bikes.
Bring your bike if you'd like to join an optional ‘ladies bicycle ride’. (Weather permitting.) There will be interesting stories - and surprising revelations - along the way! We’ll finish with a stop for celebratory afternoon tea.
The event is free, but afternoon tea is not included.
1:00pm - 4:00pm
The Audacious Women Festival is your chance to break down personal, political or institutional barriers, and to celebrate audacious women everywhere. This is more than a women's festival – we celebrate Audacious Women - women who are bold and courageous, who have flaunted convention, taken risks and done audacious acts. Women who move outside their comfort zone, face their inner demons and do what they always wished they dared.
Wherever you are, we’re here to encourage you to do your own audacious act. Break convention. Get outside your comfort zone. Be adventurous. Do a charity parachute jump, throw some bricks through the glass ceiling, or organise a protest march. Anything that will make a positive difference to you or to the world.
