At just 12 years old, Kamila is already a great cycling ambassador.
A young Polish girl, she uses her own experiences in volunteering on the women’s rides to encourage teenage girls into cycling. Kamila helps PE teachers with cycle rides in lunchtime sessions and the school’s after school bike club. She recruits pupils into cycling when they start in year 7, attends assemblies in school and talks about the cycle club, she goes to parents’ evenings and helps to maintain the school’s 15 bikes that they have on site.
Kamila gives up her lunch times and evenings every week to encourage the girls into cycling, not only in school but at the weekends as well.
A year ago Kamila was a shy 11 year old who hadn’t done much cycling, but she decided to get involved with the after school club, decided that she wanted to cycle at the weekend so joined the women’s cycle rides every other Saturday. She soon got to realise the ladies didn’t go very fast so she was given the task of leading the rides to gain more experience and soon got the hang of it.
