April 24, 2015 – Cyclofemme, an international community website focused on women and cycling, is looking for ride organizers in Utah and Idaho for their annual Cyclofemme ride on May 10, 2015.
The rides are low-key, women only rides that are targeted to empower women and encourage women to ride together. The ride size can be big or small, short or long, a group ride, a parade, a race, on dirt or pavement, and fast or slow. Generally, the rides are all women, but can be family rides or have ‘manbassadors’ to help.
The mission of the Cyclofemme Ride is:
Once a year, riders around the world unite, taking part in a day called CycloFemme.
From those learning to ride, to pro racers, and everyone in between, we discover the joy and empowerment of the ride, together.
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.
The rides are generally free to the public. To plan a ride, visit http://cyclofemme.com/plan-your-ride/ to learn how.
Once you have planned a ride, register it on the Cyclofemme.com website, and also email [email protected] to have it added to the Cycling Utah and Utah Bike Month calendar of events.
