The Squeaky Wheel was a female initiated and run organisation, a rarity in the bicycle world! This didn't mean we were only interested in women's riding, but it certainly did leave us well placed to understand the unique motivations and barriers to riding faced by women.  

Our Pushy Women program included Learning opportunities, Social Excursions and an annual Comedy Speaking Event presented in partnership with writer and comedian Catherine Deveny. We aimed to provide opportunities for women to build confidence, share stories and reflect on how riding a bicycle makes them the woman they are (or the woman they want to be!)  And the best news is that the sell out Pushy Women show will continue into the the future, presented by Catherine Deveny. Stay tuned to her website for more information.

Check out these great videos showing some highlights of our Pushy Women programming.
