Join me at Commuter Cycles in Brunswick as I bring the ‘then’ component to their awesome International Women’s Day panel “Women in Cycling – Then and Now”. Together with bike packing adventurer Pepper Cook and Kia Matley of Melburn Hurt we’ll be talking about the ways in which bikes and adventure combined to empower women, one hundred and thirty years ago and now!
I’m pretty excited to be sharing some of my discoveries about the incredible bike packing women of Melbourne in the 1890s and type two, or sometimes three, fun on a drop framed bike and it will be fun to compare with Pepper and Kia and discover what has changed – and what has stayed the same!
Wednesday March 6th 7:00pm at Commuter Cycles, Prentice Street, Brunswick. Follow this link to find all the details: https://www.facebook.com/events/2348140222081608/
