#andshecycles Roadshow Mayo
Castlebar, Mayo F23 A257 Ireland
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 event as MC, along with panelists, Green-Schools Travel Officer, Caitriona Cunningham, Mayo Ladies Footballer Katheryn Sullivan, cyclist Saoirse O’Reilly and Mayo secondary students St. Joseph’s Ann Sibi, Davitt College’s Emer and Fiona Minish and Sacred Heart’s Ariadna Gomez-Kelly.
