Following the launch of performance cycle wear for Muslim women, Cycle Sisters and Rapha teamed up for a series of events to celebrate. The events focused on celebrating Muslim cycling culture in London and beyond, providing a space for people to come together to ride, meet, and uplift each other. 





The events kicked off with laps around the Outer Circle of Regent's Park, with special women-only groups hosted by Cycle Sisters and Evolve. Following the laps, cyclists headed to the Rapha Clubhouse for a complimentary breakfast.

For more experienced road riders, the second event was an exhilarating 90km ride run by Gapped through the scenic routes of Essex which concluded at Rapha for complimentary food and drink. 


The events came to a close with an insightful panel discussion at the Rapha Clubhouse, focusing on the development of the new women’s cycling products in collaboration with Cycle Sisters. The discussion highlighted the importance of creating cycle wear with modesty in mind and featured inspiring initiatives within the community, such as Gapped.rt, the UK’s first Muslim racing team. Hosted by Zahir from the Fasted 500, the panel included Cycle Sisters Chair Samra, Trustee Zainab, and Gapped.rt Founder and Racer Junaid. The event was unique opportunity to learn about the intersection of faith, community, and cycling.


Modest sportswear has made sport and physical activity more comfortable and accessible to Muslim women than ever before.


We would like to thank Rapha for collaborating with us on this step towards recognising Muslim women in cycling.
