Events for 20 Aug 2018 - 26 Aug 2018

An evening with world bike girl
An Evening with World Bike Girl

Date: 20 August 2018

Location: FarGo Village - Twisted Barrel Unit 11, Coventry, CV1 5ED.

Time: 18:30 - 20:30

Ishbel Holmes is cycling a UK wide speaking tour with her dog Maria, whom she rescued cycling across Brazil last year.

Ishbel, who is Scottish-Iranian, was a velodrome sprinter for Iran and has since pedalled across 20 countries solo, rescuing street dogs (and the odd cat!) along the way. She will be talking about her adventures; including animal rescue by bike, pedalling across the Andes at 5000 meters, cycling through the Pantanal Jungle, biking Che Guevara’s final footsteps, crossing a country with no money, her viral one woman protest in Bolivia, and how she faces 20 years in prison if she returns to Iran (where her friends are still being arrested and beaten for riding their bikes) for defending every women’s right to cycle.

Most of all Ishbel hopes to inspire people to use their negative experiences to propel them into positive futures.

Ishbel has written a powerful, inspiring, and emotional memoir documenting her adventures and a journey of self-discovery sparked by her love for Lucy, the very first street dog she rescued whilst cycling across Turkey and the parallels to her experiences of foster care, homelessness, and being unwanted. It’s called Me, My Bike and a Street Dog Called Lucy and there is a film being made about her life.

Her talk will resonate with cyclists, outdoor enthusiasts, animal lovers, and anyone who’s struggled.

Event starts 7pm to 8.30 pm (Doors open 6.30 pm and close 9.30 pm)
