Women! Reclaim the bike.

June 10, 2010

It is ashame that for one reason or another you don’t see an awful lot of women cycling around our city, but by the looks of it Femme Pedale are looking to change all of that starting on the evening of the 18th June.

I already know of a good handful of girls that are attending this next week but if you know any that aren’t… let them know!

Such a great thing to do.

Femme Pédale.

Femme Pédale is a blog for cyclists in Birmingham, with the aim of encouraging more women to ride. We are members of the Birmingham Bike Foundry which is working to make cycling around the city safer, easier and funner (!) for everybody. We post anecdotes, maintenance tips and pictures from our adventures.

A super blog and as they say they are from sunny Birmingham too. Double bonus.

Check it out here. Oh, and Birmingham folk! Have a root around and look out for some real exciting news on some future happenings for our city.

You go girl!

The stylish new women’s cycling specific clothing and accessories company, Cyclodelic, is launching at Oxford Street’s Topshop flagship store on Thursday 9 April 2009. Designed and handmade by two female cyclists in their East London studio, Cyclodelic believes that girls who cycle don’t have to forfeit fashion over function.

With prices starting from £10, Cyclodelic products are filled with functional features, from waterproofing Cordura to reflective seams, and are more colourful than a box of smarties – proof that ladies don’t have to reach for the unflattering fluorescent when hitting the road.

Edit: At this point in the original post I said some negative things aimed at Topshop. In hindsight these comments I made were foolish, hasty and hypocritical so two fine Spinwell readers let me know about it.

To RHB and especially Late Adopter… Infinite thanks you for your input.
