Cycle Stories Update

The two story cycle rides scheduled were scheduled for 15th and 16th March have been postponed.  New dates are now confirmed as:

Sunday 11 May:  ‘Glad the Gloom’.  Marvel at the energy and creativity of poet, playwright and activist Eva Gore-Booth and her partner Esther Roper.  Hear how they worked with barmaids, pit-brow lasses and other women on the ‘margins’ of society to help set up the first women’s trade unions.

Sunday 15 June:  ‘Nothing to lose but our chains’.  On this ride you’ll hear about a number of women who played key roles in the suffrage movement.  We’ll also visit the National Cycling Centre and hear about some of the challenges facing today’s elite women cyclists.
