CycloFemme is a Global Celebration of Women created TO HONOR THE PAST from the shoulders of those who stood before us, for the freedom to choose and the chance to wear pants. TO CELEBRATE THE PRESENT with strength and courage, voices raised, moving together. TO EMPOWER THE FUTURE of women everywhere, the backbone of positive social change.
Several women in Washoe County have pioneered our local Cyclofemme events over the past few years. In 2018, new life was brought to the event that we couldn’t be more proud of. We partnered with Patagonia, Bike Like a Girl, and others to create an event that showcased a range of cycling attire options as well as multiple group rides that welcomes riders of all levels of experience and ability.
Details for the 2019 event are in the works, but we hope you will celebrate by joining your friends, rad local women cyclists, and others who support women on bikes for the 2019 Cyclofemme Ride & Social this Mother’s Day! Meet great ladies who ride, learn a bit about maintaining your bike, experience the amazing feeling of riding with a group of supportive peers and mentors, and enjoy a post-ride social with food, drinks, fashion, and more fun stuff.
