Creating a more bike friendly world

For our Supporting More Women to Ride webinar we hosted a webinar with some of the best women in biking in Scotland. We came together to share data and discuss how to support more women to enjoy cycling.

Each shared their unique insights, fantastic data and projects and programmes in Scotland to support women to cycle more often and more confidently. Joining us was:

Fleur Ammerlaan - Insights Manager, Love to Ride
