FROM MILAN TO LONDON BY BIKE FOLLOWING THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE GREAT WOMEN WHO CHANGED THE WORLD, TO BRING A MESSAGE OF COURAGE TO THE EMMELINE PANKHURST MEMORIAL.
In July 2017 we cycled 1.470km from Milan to London!
We didn’t take the shortest route, but followed as much as possible the great European cycle routes: Route No. 3 of the Swiss National Cycling Network from Chiasso to Basel, Eurovelo 15 Rhine Cycle Route from Basel to Strasbourg, Paneuropa Radweg From Strasbourg to Paris, Avenue Verte from Paris to London.
It was not only an adventure on two wheels, but a journey along the footsteps of the great European women who changed the world: we visited places, collected stories, got inspired.
Pioneers, strong women who, with their courage, changed forever the history of women: starting from the cyclist Alfonsina Strada to fashion designer Coco Chanel, who changed the idea of femininity; the german heroin Sophie Sholl, Emmeline Pankhurst, the leader of the British suffragette movement, and many other…
During the journye we collected on our Brave Women Notebook the messages of courage of today’s women and men, that we brought to the Emmeline Pankhurst Memorial, in Westminster, our arrival destination. We left it there, to inspire all the peple who visit that place every day.
