An Inter-Continental Ride to Celebrate International Women's Day on March 3rd!

By : Charlotte Fagan · February 18, 2012

Announcing An Inter-Continental Ride to Celebrate International Women's Day! A ride for women, and people who support women!

On Saturday, March 3rd, we will be gathering at Sunrise Cyclery to head out on a ride around town to our Grease Rag Locations (Sunrise, Recovery Bikes, and the Hub - U of M). We will meet at 12:30, head out at 1, and end back at Sunrise.  We'll have a few stops along the way to sip cold or hot beverages.

Inter-continental you say?!? What does that even mean?!? It means that we will take off on our ride at the same time as women in 6 other countries! Women in Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, Mexico, Colombia, and El Salvador will also be taking off on a ride around town to commemorate International Women's Day (which is really on March 8th). We will be taking pictures and videos of the ride to then share with the other groups organizing rides to make into one big video showing how women all over the world  are out riding their bikes. It's pretty rad.  Want to know what international women's day is all about - check out this wikipedia article.
