The women’s cycling industry is booming. More and more active ladies are getting up and getting out on two wheels. At TWC we celebrate every women who picks up a bike and rides for the sheer joy it brings them. There’s a few women who stand out in the crowd, those women who inspire us to ride, take on challenges and even pursue new career avenues.
Not every inspirational women has to be a professional cyclist, even though they usually appear at the top of many people’s heroine list. There are so many women who work hard to develop women’s cycling, more who work behind the scenes, and there are those who are great representations of what cycling is all about.
For International Women’s Day, we’ve rounded up a few women in the cycling community who inspire us to ride, to better ourselves as cyclists, and as human beings.
Emily has a wealth of cycling experience from a variety of disciplines in her riding background. From cycling the busy London streets as a bike courier, Emily has gone on to undertake some serious ultra endurance trips.
Last year, Emily blasted her way through nearly 4,000km of riding with 50,000m of climbing to win the Transcontinental bike race. She’s raced, ridden and toured all over the world on two wheels, sharing her stories as she rides.
Armed with advice and experience, Emily is on a mission to promote ultra-endurance riding to women. To do this, she’s willing to help break down the barriers which may be preventing women from taking part.
