Tuesday 13th July 6:00 - 8:00 pm

HISTORY OF WOMEN'S CYCLING and PSYCHOLOGY OF CYCLING hosted by Charlotte Cole-Hossain and Marta Cooper

6:00 pm - History of Women’s Cycling with Hannah Ross & Robyn Davidson

Hannah Ross is the author of Revolutions, How Women Changed the World on Two Wheels. She works for an independent publisher in London. When she is not working on other people's books or writing her own, she is usually on a bike. She belongs to a local cycling club and volunteers for a charity helping refugee women learn to ride bikes. Whenever she can, she packs her saddlebag and heads for the open road. And now she does not feel she has really travelled anywhere unless it is on two wheels.

Robyn Davidson is a freelance cycling journalist with a background in racing on the track. She loves content creation – from interviews to memes – and has worked with British Cycling, Cyclevox and DROPS Le Col while also being the Social Media Manager for the Women’s Tour of Scotland. Robyn is passionate about equality in all walks of life but strives to succeed with this in her field of cycling. Usually seen taking pictures of dogs at races.
