GGD #61 “Cycling fast and loose”

We are pleased to announce a talk from Kate Ross-Smith this month from OVO.  On the green topic its all about cycling and sounds like it will be truly engaging.

We also have  Monika Radycliffe from setsquared along to tell you a bit about OSCA the startup accelerator, which they are encouraging women to also apply and get involved with

Kate is an engineer who is most proud of her ability to be geeky about absolutely anything (even cool things). She’s given talks on subjects such as how she hand-built her own surf board from components sourced within 50 miles, to how to program machine learning algorithms to help you choose a chocolate bar. Being passionate about Bristol and the city’s love of cycling, for this talk she’s going to share some tips and tricks from her knowledge and experience as a qualified bike mechanic. Taking a brief but deep dive into bike design and fit, she hopes to give you some tips to make any ride that little bit easier, faster, and more comfortable!

After the presentation and any questions we will open the floor up for a discussion,  if anyone feels like they would like to bring along any ppt’s or links that they want to share for discussion then please bring it along on a USB or mail the team with info and we can share this during the discussion period. Don’t forget – you don’t have to work in the industry or be a geek, this is a group for anyone with an interest in the subject!

Please sign up on our meetup page here MEETUP

Do come along for pre-presentation mingling as we will be there from 6.30pm. As always, we welcome men to our group, but to keep our audience predominantly female, we ask that all men are accompanied by a woman (just add a +1 on the meetup).
