Ride with @ayesuppose next Saturday!! Link in profile! I've been following Ayesha McGowan since I saw the BBC mini doc about her early last year. Her journey has been amazing and empowering - watching her push herself, becoming the role model she never had and one that we so sorely need. ⠀
A couple months ago, I was approached by a student from the local academy, who asked if she could help out in any way/shape/form - a young black woman asking to be part of a bike workshop??? Heck YEAH!! She is now coming to visit on a regular basis, and has brought friends with her as well. We need more women of colour in the bike world, hands down. We need to do all we can to support their dreams and goals. ⠀
I'm having a massive fan girl mo coz she's coming to London and we're doing a #DoBetterTogether ride with her. We'll be riding 100k, tackling the Hertfordshire Hills on Saturday 15 July with @yokoaokee leading the way. Join us!
