For the third consecutive year, in order to support women’s sport, the project brings some 30 young people together in Brussels to introduce them to cycling. The aim is having them prepare for the BXL TOUR, taking part and finishing the race. This empowering and enjoyable experience also ensures that they become more comfortable with cycling, a booming way of getting around and staying active.
Various Brussels-based organizations active in the cycling world will provide training to give the participants the theoretical and practical skills they need.
As well as being vital for physical and mental health, sport unites, breaks down barriers and brings us together. And so it makes an essential contribution to social inclusion and citizen participation. The initiative also reflects a positive shift in local women’s sport.
