Women riding bicycle

Is it permissible for women to ride bicycle and also motorcycle? I am asking this because here in Maldives some salafi sisters go to some places using that. They say they want do everything on time and they can’t go walking to schools, learning classes, for shopping etc. Jazakillah Allaah Khairan

Sheikh Adel As-Sayed:

It was proven that the Salaf women did ride donkeys and mules, and riding a bike is sort of similar to this, BUT with the condition that the woman is able to cover herself as should be, and to take measurements that her Jilbab will not be blown by the wind leading to uncovering her body or leading to show the shape of the parts of her body.

If she can do it with this condition then it is allowed.
