An evening with ABM 02 – TONIGHT!

Tonight the talks will be by some influential ladies in the cycling world:

Laura Fletcher has been the head producer of the London Bicycle Film Festival for three years.  Residing in the UK since 2006, she has seen the rise of urban cycling over that time, and combines her knowledge of it with previously watching the re-emergence in New York.  An avid cyclist herself, she has dedicated herself to promoting cycling through arts,music, fashion and film, allowing access for a greater audience.  LONDON BICYCLE FILM FESTIVAL:  OCTOBER 13-17, 2010.

Dr Lowenna Smith is a rider and writer from Cycling Plus. In 2006, six months after Lowenna bought her first bike since childhood, she rode from John o’Groats to Lands End with her husband – and that’s when her obsession with road cycling really began. In 2008 she got into racing time trials through the support of her local club VC Walcot. That year she ‘just’ raced 10 miles, but in 2009 she rather upped the ante by completing two twelve hour road time trials. Training for these events remains a great excuse to ride her bike as much as possible. She’s on a bike six days a week and it’s a big part of her life. Currently Dr Smith combines teaching Physics at the University of Bath with product testing for Cycling Plus.

Poppy Smith is fashion editor of Cooler magazine, an action sports magazine for women. After graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2005 she spent the winter snowboarding in Morzine, followed by a couple of years as a freelance writer and stylist based in Brighton before moving back to London to work full time on Cooler. Poppy currently has three bikes: a custom built fixed gear bike for commuting (which you’ll see at the talk), a road bike for cycling holidays and riding around the Cotswolds where she grew up, and a mountain bike for weekends in Epping Forest, or Wales if she’s lucky.

So – all you cycling ladies out there – come down tonight and listen to what these three luminaries have to say. Cycling isn’t, and shouldn’t ever be a male orientated sport. Just get out and ride!

(all you lads should come too – obviously!)
