Welcome to the new home of Young Women’s Health Project!
We’re currently working on our new site and can’t wait to share all of our fresh content with you in a new way. Please bear with us as we get this site up and running and very soon we’ll be posting regular content for young lesbian and bisexual women, and all of the fun stuff we get up to at our group each week!
See you all again very soon,
We kicked off the first of six weeks of cycling this evening with glorious sunshine and a handful of Chewits – just the right concoction to keep our energy levels up!
We met at 4:15pm at Sidney Street Cafe to bring the bikes over to the Sheung Lok centre. This proved slightly more difficult than expected as the bikes outnumbered the people! Thankfully, Claire used all of her biking experience to carefully carry two bikes at the one time. A mighty feat it was. Helmets off to you, Claire!
After snacking on some treats at Sheung Lok and doing our introductions, we all headed over to the grounds of Medlock Primary School to learn the basics of cycling. Snigger all you like but even those of us who have been cycling for years struggled to pull off an emergency stop and swerve!
Not everyone was as confident with one-handed cycling or turning corners at the beginning but by the end of the session, we all felt capable of hitting the road next week. So confident even that some of us tried our hand at, well, no-handed cycling… It’s safe to say we won’t be attempting that on the roads any time soon!
We’re very excited to announce Summer Camp 2015! This year we’re heading to Tattenhall in Cheshire on 24th-26th July. There are lots of new things to try out and lots of fun to be had. Summer Camp is open to all young women, 14-25, who identify as lesbian or bisexual.
