The Girl on a Bike in the Media

Woodsrow MC: A night with Vanessa Ruck aka The Girl On A Bike

Vanessa Ruck AKA The girl on a bike, comes to biker cafe Woodrow’s MC Swansea for a evening of chat and fun games!

Vanessa started @TheGirlOnABike when bed bound after her 3rd surgery following a life changing accident, when she was hit by a red light jumping car, and decided that she needed something positive to channel her energy into. Since that day she has continued to share her journey with her audience, but not just the happy days you may expect on social media. Shes also tried hard to be real, showing the down days, the days you have to find all your inner strength to even just get out of bed.

Now Vanessa rides all over the world, on and off-road, racing in some of the most difficult races in the world.

Come and join us for an evening of topical conversation, news and games. Submit questions to be answered by Vanessa, and even apply to join her on our panel gameshow.

Each event is hosted by Tom Woodrow, producer of Motorbike & Adventure Bike TV, as well as presenter of Tales from the Trails, at his motorbike clothing store and coffee shop in Swansea.
