Whilst it’s cold and the workshop is pretty much too chilly to do anything worthwhile in, we go to thinking about another project we could run to keep the cycling buzz fully ticking over the grey months of January and February.
Introducing #MCRwomenbike. And here’s what it’s all about….
To help mark International Women’s Day 2015, we want to collect photographs of women across Manchester telling us about their achievements and why they ride their bikes.
Women across Manchester are riding their bikes. For many women a bicycle can provide a key to independence, freedom, fun, adventure, friendship, employment, health and wellbeing.
We want photographs of everyone – so whether you have just learnt to ride; you enjoy occasional riding with family or friends in parks and green places; your bike is your transport; you like to explore the world from the saddle; you enjoy speeding on steaming tarmac; or love bumping about on dirt tracks in the wild forest – we would like your photograph!
Check out the How to Submit page with all the information about the friendly competition we’ll be running alongside the project with some general info pointers to get the best out of your submission. Why are we running this project and where did we get the inspiration from? Check out Project Context page for some background.
Anyone can vote for any photograph they like, but beware you only get one vote, so choose wisely!
