#WOTW: Roshni Sharma

Our next woman of the week is none other than Roshni Sharma. Sharma is the first female Indian woman to ride a bike solo from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. While riding her bike from Southern India to Northern India, she experienced different weather conditions, sights and communities. Sharma started riding a bike at the age of 16 and is now an inspiration and role model for young girls. Roshni is breaking that stereotype that women are unable to travel alone in India. She has inspired other women to make similar expeditions like hers. She has expressed that women need to remove the thought that they can’t travel, as long as women are aware and prepared for their expedition they can do whatever they want.

“Biking is my passion and by taking this expedition, I want to spread a message among women, especially young girls, to come out of social taboos and live a free life.”
