Cyclo Femme – Riding Strong
With 134 registered rides in 15 countries across the world, the Cyclo Femme movement is taking the world by storm on May 15.
Oregon is one of the states with the most rides, from city to rural, pavement to dirt, fast and casual.
Here’s an overview of what’s planned:
Free bike checks
Oregon City Trail Alliance is sponsoring their first Ladies Ride. They’ve even offered to help people find bikes if they need one.
Pendleton is well known for their active group Pendleton on Wheels and the mighty Century Ride of the Centuries, and now they’re hosting what looks to be a fantastic Cycloe Femme ride.
“The subject of this ride is for all mothers, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, aunts, etc. to share in a healthy event with other women around the world and to promote unity and biking in our community.”
The Portland events are being dubbed “LOVE GATHERING!” 7 rides planned. Feeling inspired to organize your own woman-led ride? Email April Streeter
