Women Atop Wheels

20th May, 2017 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Discover women atop wheels in the GWL archive!

Women Atop Wheels, Saturday 20th May, 1pm to 2pm

Suffragette Postcard Credit: GWL

Hidden away in our museum stores are objects and materials which remind us of how women have used cycling to change their lives and those of others. For the Festival of Museums, we would love to show you some of these gems, and bring your own memorabilia if you have anything to share.

You can then join our Women’s Heritage Bike Ride at 2pm if you feel like it; a gentle ride along the East End’s cycle paths and the river Clyde, on which you’ll hear more about the exploits of women cyclists, the suffragettes’ inventive uses of bikes and other intrepid women atop wheels. Find out more here.


This event is open to all and is free to attend. Please book below (you will be taken through the shopping cart but no charge will be made) or you can call us on 0141 550 2267. If you have booked a place and are no longer able to attend please let us know so that we can make your place available to someone else.
