Fatima Ahmed is part of Cycling UK's 100 Women in Cycling 2019 list for her instrumental role in getting more people on bikes in the London Borough of Hounslow.
Fatima only started cycling in 2016 and now cycles everywhere for both commuting and social rides. It's no coincidence that at the same time Fatima's cycling life began, the London Borough of Hounslow (LBH) also saw a significant increase in the number of participants to their Adult Cycle training sessions.
Back in 2016/17 there were just under 100 adults attending, but under Fatima's watch participants have jumped to 1,686 in 2019.
Encouragingly, over 80% the participants are women and from ethnic minority backgrounds, with a huge age range from 16–82 years. LBH is doing everything they can to create an environment for inclusive cycling.
