As Ramadan was approaching, I was anticipating a month in which very little interest in outdoor activities would come from some of the BME (Black and Minority Ethnic) groups I was looking to engage in cycling. What I failed to remember was that Ramadan is also a month in which charity takes a higher priority. The solution was simple: a cycling event to raise money and for women only.
