The Fancy Women Bike Ride is a global event that started in Izmir (Turkey) to ask the city authorities to create streets which are welcoming for women (and everyone) to cycle in. Women of all kinds, however they choose to define themselves, are invited to dress up (whatever makes them feel beautiful, strong and great) and take to their bikes for a short but fabulous circuit of Edinburgh’s city centre using cycle paths, low traffic routes, and a few city streets. Bring your friends, mothers, aunties and sisters and be prepared for a magical afternoon. Men can come too but are asked to ride with us but not ahead of us. Children are welcome but be aware our route does include some on-road sections in the centre of Edinburgh.
