Cycling Training and Empowerment for Women by Women
Learn how to start a cycling programme for women in your city through the TandEM programme! This train-the-trainer course will take place from 1 September to 15 October this year – and it’s free! Meet other like-minded women and together learn how to inspire others to take up cycling.
Who can apply to the programme?
EIT Urban Mobility and Amsterdam-based cycling NGO BYCS are searching for women in towns and cities across the EU who have a passion and enthusiasm for cycling and want to positively influence their local community!
Why are we doing this?
We believe in the power of bicycling – not only as a healthy and sustainable mode of transport, but also as a symbol of freedom and safe and inclusive communities! At the same time, we believe there are many women out there who are strong community advocates and are interested in building the next generation of women who ride the city.
What does the programme consist of?
Participants will receive approximately 25 hours of training spread out over 4-5 online sessions and one weekend-long in-person training in Brussels (Belgium). Following the training sessions, we will support them to implement their own programme to help more women to gain confidence in bicycling. All training will be conducted in English.
When is this happening?
The training will run from September 1 to October 15, followed by a collaborative two-month period where participants will pilot several sessions of a women’s cycling programme with support from a network of peers and mentors.
