This wasn’t just “talking bikes” – this was a heartfelt and educational afternoon of discussion, which left everyone feeling inspired and I can say for myself, wanting to shout from the rooftops about how wonderful cycling is… and why it shouldn’t be an “exclusive” hobby.
I sat on the panel session with Jacqui and Jill, discussing issues surrounding women’s cycling. The three of us were talking about breaking down stereotypes of women on bikes and how were are all cyclists… there was also an interesting debate between us regarding the thought pattern of being a female cyclist carrying its own risks.
The entire afternoon was recorded, so for those that were unable to make the Conference, look out for it hopefully coming online soon. I hope that the BFF holds another of these events again when the festival comes back to London; this was a thought provoking, informative and educational discussion about cycling in this city!
