Most of us learn to ride a two wheeled bike as a kid - but for some refugee women learning to ride a bike was never an option, for cultural or financial reasons.

Tomorrow to mark International Women's day, groups of refugee and migrant women in Auckland, Wellington and Palmerston North are gathering to learn to ride bikes

The event, which started last year is organised by the Changemakers Refugee Forum & Massey University's Centre for Defence and Security Studies.
