"Communicating the joy of cycling,

through the medium of dance!"

-The Spokes

We are The Spokes Bicycle Dancers and we were the UK’s first all-woman all-bike-loving bicycle dance troupe.

 

We love bicycles! We love to dance with bicycles! Our bicycle dancing routines have to be seen to be believed!!

 

There are a few reasons why we wanted to be an all female group. One was to promote a positive image of cycling, specifically, to women. Men cycle more than women, with 16% of men cycling at least once a week compared with only 10% of women (Department for Transport, 2002). Despite this, the bicycle has had an important role in women’s history which we want to celebrate.
