Just like last year, we will be convening on Mother’s Day. Start your morning in the saddle, with one of three group rides that leave starting at 9:00 a.m., then return to mingle and connect with friends and resources at the after-ride social until 1:00 p.m. Enjoy the outdoor marketplace, the chance to introduce yourself to local cycling groups, complimentary mimosas, a live DJ, and fun & accessible cycling-related group activities! Please remember to drink and ride/ drive responsibly.
This year, we are developing a theme around “the power of motherhood,” and in the weeks leading up to Cyclofemme we will be creating features of cyclists who help nurture and support Reno’s bike community, particularly youth. If you, or someone you know, is worthy of being a Cyclofemme Ambassador, please let us know your interest (this is not exclusive to mothers who have given birth)!
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.
