“[The bicycle] has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel” – Susan B Anthony, Women’s Rights Activist, 1896

March 2020. Dynamic single mother Kit’s world suddenly shrinks. Staying at home to save lives means a retreat back to the role of mother and homemaker. With the walls closing in, the garage and 2 wheels become her sanctuary…

On Track is a new play drawing on true stories and using RedCape’s trademark blend of comedy and visual, physical theatre. The audience follow Kit’s journey of discovery through the shocking history of women’s cycling. Riding at night, disguised as men, these cycling pioneers powered over Victorian ideals of the genteel, house-bound woman and opened up new worlds.

On Track explores mental health and tells the story of how, during lockdown, a simple bicycle became a vehicle to freedom once again.

As Kit pumps up her tyres and ventures out, we hope you will leave confident and inspired to ride out on your own too.
