#andshecycles festival 2022

During the week beginning 20th June 2022 teenage girls and young women throughout Scotland will be joining together to ride bikes in their local areas (with opportunities to meet up with girls from other elsewhere in a Covid safe way) in celebration of the success of the #andshecycles campaign so far and to encourage even more girls to #jointhemovement.

With over 25 rides planned in 10 local authority areas, we anticipate this event to be the biggest festival of teenage girls and young women cycling that this country has ever seen!

Rides of varying lengths are planned and bike ride activities may include cafe stops, silent discos or campfires making the festival fun and accessible for everyone. The festival aims to be open to riders of all abilities and experience- girls only taster sessions will be provided for those who may not have been on a bike in years! 

There will be film and media teams attending the series of group rides across the country with the aim being to encourage girls and young women to cycle as part of everyday journeys.
