Rachel Evans is the founder of the Bikes Babes Project, a community-based initiative that strives to encourage more women to take up cycling. The project provides a network of like-minded women cyclists who support each other in their cycling journeys, no matter what level they are at. Rachel has identified that many women are hesitant to take up cycling, due to lack of knowledge or confidence, or the fear of being judged or harassed. Through the Bikes Babes Project, she provides a safe and welcoming space for women to learn more about cycling, develop their skills and build confidence. Rachel also provides a range of activities including group rides, workshops, and social events to create a sense of community and belonging. The project has been a huge success, with many women joining the initiative, building relationships and sharing stories. Rachel’s ultimate goal is to make cycling more accessible and enjoyable for women of all ages and backgrounds.
