Queen Bike 2012

By : Lowrah · September 17, 2012

Our friend Sveta is throwing a really fun event called Queen Bike, and I'm really excited about it!  I will be participating as a volunteer, and I hope that one of you fine WTFs will participate in the event.  It's going to be fun!

A gathering of women and transgender cyclists for fun and games!

Sunday, September 30, 2012
Outside of the Midtown Freewheel on the Greenway
 
This event will be a series of light-hearted competitions, ending with a crowning of Queen Bike 2012!  (Open to all WTF- women/ transgender/ femmes!)
 
Your knowledge and creativity will earn you points- participate in one, or all of these contests:

Show us your bike!  Take a photo of you with your bike.  Be creative!  Show us what you like to do, or how you use your bike to get around.  Don't worry, this isn't a traditional "beauty" contest.  Show us your scars, your bike grease, show us how you get rad!

Submit photos to the lilu13by@gmail.com by September 20th!
