Event description

Description

In 2019 Green-Schools worked with teenage girls to develop the #andshecycles campaign to shine a light on the barriers currently reducing the rate of girls choosing to cycle. The greatest success from the campaign launch was that it stirred up many necessary conversations around the social barriers which girls face in relation to cycling. #andshecycles is a national campaign that wants to help girls get back on their bikes while addressing some of the reasons they’re reluctant to in the first place

Following the much anticipated #andshecycles launch event in Dublin in September 2019, the next phase of the campaign will take to the road with roadshow-style, regional events around the country. The #andshecycles Roadshow will be held in five different towns and cities across Ireland between February and May 2020.

Join us on February 6, in Castlebar, Mayo for the launch of the #andshecycles Roadshow events.

Angelina Nugent will lead the panel discussion and Q&A as MC, along with panellists, Green-Schools Travel Officer Mayo, Lukasz Krzywon, GAA star Katheryn Sullivan, cyclist Saoirse O'Reilly and two Mayo secondary school students.

6.30pm: Refreshments. photography exhibition and launch of campaign video

This #andshecycles Roadshow event has been supported with the help of Mayo County Council and Mayo Sports Partnership.
