Disrupting Cycling Narratives with Jools Walker a.k.a Lady Velo and Ayesha McGowan
We are delighted to be hosting an evening of chat and the disruption of cycling narratives with two amazing women; Ayesha McGowan and Jools Walker (a.k.a Lady Velo) who are both passionate about cycling and about getting more women (especially women of colour!) into cycling.
We also have the honour of hosting Lady Velo’s first book event ahead of her official publication day for Back in the Frame.
About the Book: Back in the Frame
Jools Walker re-discovered cycling aged twenty-eight after a ten-year absence from the saddle. When she started blogging about her cycle adventures under the alias Lady Vélo, a whole world was opened up to her. But it’s hard to find space in an industry not traditionally open to women – especially women of colour.
Shortly after getting back on two wheels, Jools was diagnosed with depression and then, in her early thirties, hit by a mini-stroke. Yet, through all of these punctures, one constant remained: Jools’ love of cycling. In Back in the Frame Jools talks to the other female trailblazers who are disrupting the cycling narrative as well as telling the story of how she overcame her health problems, learned how to cycle her own path and even found a love of Lycra shorts along the way.
