Asian Women Cycling

I've been busy covering lots of cycling stories in the run up to the Tour de France starting in Yorkshire.

I recently recorded at a weekly cycling session for Asian women in a park in Sheffield. 

The ladies there told me they feel comfortable cycling in the walled off area where people won't be watching them and that it's not socially acceptable for them to ride on the roads in their communities.

  1. Very sad that Asian women haven't been able to enjoy cycling. As Dave said, the best drugs are fresh air and exercise - especially in green surroundings. Impressed that the council set this up so that Asian women could access cycling in a private environment.
