Join four of the pushiest of women together with the clever and most excellent ladies of The Squeaky Wheel for an easy-riding feminist frolic through Melbourne’s inner north!
Four of Melbourne’s leading, smart, sharp and hilarious writers, thinkers and performers are leading literary and comedic two-wheeled tours, and inviting women to join them for the ride.
Part performance, part observance, no parts endurance, the rides will bring together women in a unique setting to consider what it means to be a woman on wheels. The idea for the rides came off the back of the immensely popular annual comedy event of the same name, chaired by comedienne and cycling enthusiast,Catherine Deveny.
The Pushy Women rides are a social afternoon of riding for women, with a different host each week. Each ride starts and ends at St Ali North, with a free coffee on arrival and a fine bike tune up from the great people at Velo Cycles – the best way to pedal the tour de suburbs, mesdames!
