"Being in a room with other [people] that looked like me helped me feel comfortable making mistakes or asking silly questions. We'd laugh together and there just felt like a sense of friendship in the air.
It makes me so happy to see someone I met at the workshops when I'm [out] riding and wave 'hi!' It's almost like a rolling alumni club."

"I was much more comfortable in a women's only course. It felt like a community building event [that was] supportive, ego-less and focused, as it was a minority group for a minority group.
I have a lot more confidence and awareness of the road rules and my rights and I feel empowered. Women on bikes is a thing! And we are a group, a strong group. (And wearing a skirt while cycling is not only OK but recommended!)"
