Further demonstrations and events will be taking place, with topics ranging from cyclist specific yoga to everything required for your own backpacking adventure. A finalised scheduled will be announced ahead of the show.

Danielle Welton, Founder of Casquette, said: “This is our chance to bring the attitude, aesthetic and humour of Casquette vividly to life, and we can’t wait to introduce our fans to the women fuelling their passion for riding in an event format. The programme is a proper belter and the women who we have lined up to share their stories and experiences on-stage and in masterclasses are true legends!”

Geraldine Reeve, Show Director of the London Bike Show and Triathlon Show, said: “It’s fantastic to be working with Danielle and Casquette Magazine to ensure that women’s cycling is well represented at the show.  By introducing some exciting and engaging content, specifically for women, we will have a great opportunity to grow the show and even out the male/female split – which has traditionally been 80% male/20% female.  It’s also a unique opportunity for our exhibitors to engage with our growing female audience and sell more products at the show and beyond.”
