Tiffany is back with a second edition: Mind the Cycling Gender Gap #2: Freedom to Ride showcasing women's stories of bicycling and empowerment. The theme is *freedom* -- liberation from the hassles of urban traffic and gender norms. Contributors are from all over the world, including England, Pakistan, the Netherlands, and the US, and talk about issues ranging from aging to pregnancy to fashion to creating a community organisation to the subtle life lessons learned on two wheels.
Issue 2 will be available for sale on the night.
We will also host a short panel with four contributors from the zine and an interactive workshop after.

Last year she stepped things up a notch, bought a pretty road bike that she adores, cycled London to Paris, and is now vaguely addicted to triathlons...
