Hello everyone! I’m Manon, the creator of Women Don’t Cycle. I made this film while cycling during 11 months from Brussels to Tokyo with my partner Dries in 2019. Taking a camera with me on this journey was a fantastic way to meet and talk to incredible women cyclists in different countries around the world. The film tells their stories, and our story of travelling slowly 13.500 km across 21 countries.
This journey inspired us so much that we now fully dedicate ourselves to making slow travel more accessible. When we came back, we set up Welcome To My Garden, a global network of 5.600+ citizens opening their gardens so that travellers by foot or by bicycle can camp there for free for the night.
I’m proud that this film - made with zero experience, yet enormous perseverance - has now inspired thousands of people to start slow travelling. I hope you will enjoy it too!
