Bicycle Belles: Celebrating Women's Cycling

Here at GreenFinder we love cycling, in fact it is one of our most favourite things in the world. So imagine our delight when we heard about a photography competition aimed at celebrating the diversity of women’s cycling.

In order to promote cycling to ladies in the London borough of Lambeth and to show that cycling can be cool and chic, Lambeth council have decided to organise the bicycle belles competition.

There are hundreds of women cycling through and around Lambeth every day and the numbers are increasing. As it is no longer the domain of the lycra clad middle class male, they are looking for images that portray the diversity of women and their bikes. So please send them your photographs of women cycling in and around the borough.

The competition is open to all ages who live, work or study in Lambeth and the best photographs will be a part of an exhibition to be held in September 2008. Prizes will include a bicycle, accessories and of course seeing your work exhibited. For more information about the competition please visit

For those of you not living or working in Lambeth like ourselves there is no need to feel left out. We have discovered a fab website called cyclechic where you can upload photos of yourself cycling and looking glam on their facebook group. So what are you waiting for ……on yer bikes!
