CycloFemme is coming up, as always on Mother’s Day! It’s also Seattle Critical Lass’ birthday–we held our first ride on the first CycloFemme four fabulous years ago.
Join Familybike Seattle, Critical Lass, and Public Bikes + Gear Seattle to celebrate women as the powerful forces we are in our families and communities! Let’s celebrate our commitment and choices in creating healthy, sustainable, stress-reducing, safe, community-building, congestion-free and enjoyable ways of living.
The ride starts at Cal Anderson Park (after coffee and doughnuts provided by PUBLIC!), and winds along mostly back-streets and proposed Neighborhood Greenways to Lake Washington Blvd, where it joins Bicycle Sunday for car-free riding along the lake to Seward Park. At Seward Park we’ll enjoy cookies, drinks, and sandwiches (courtesy of PUBLIC!), and hang out in the grass adjacent to the playground. Kids will play, adults will chat, and everyone will be happy. Join us!
CycloFemme is a Global Women’s Cycling Day created TO HONOR THE PAST and the emancipation of our grandmothers and great-grandmothers, for the freedom to choose and the chance to wear pants. TO CELEBRATE THE PRESENT and the riders who keep it rolling, bringing women’s racing to the forefront, pushing the limits, breaking down barriers and sharing the love of the bike with everyone along the way. TO EMPOWER THE FUTURE of women in cycling and the opportunity for positive social change. Encourage women to ride and they will change the world.
