In this no country for women, in small -small patches not only women are revolting but also are slowly learning to enjoy their being and are shedding the age old tag of the weak and helpless.
From 2011 onwards there has been a rapid rise in women biker clubs in India which goes to show how women are dismantling the male bastion of bike riding as even today 90 percent of the bike riders are male. Bikers clubs like “Bikerni”, “The Riderni”,”Lady Bikers”,”Hopongurlz”,”Lady bikers of India”,”Bengal lady bikers”,”Regals”,”Biking queens”,”Biker babes”are doing a awesome job by providing women a platform for bike expeditions and a place where other women can learn and teach riding bikes.It will also go a long way in building unity in women.Not to forget that some of these clubs are spreading awareness on women’s issues proving that they are not just rebels but rebels with a cause.
Riding a bike not only gives women the confidence but also enhances their self-image. Also since the societal pressure on women’s life is immense in our country , riding a bike makes a woman less bothered as to what others think about them.It also adds to the list of things a woman can do as supposedly against the gender stereotypes of women being physically weaker than men.And finally riding a bike liberates a woman as everything loses the ability to scare.
