This May 13 weekend, join women around the globe as we band together on bikes to celebrate collective momentum.
By: Vanessa & JennaCycloFemme Rides are part of an international movement based on the belief that strong communities are built around strong women. That being on a bike brings us closer to our community, to nature, and to ourselves. That from action comes change. That our hope, courage, and strength is amplified when we unite. https://cyclofemme.com/?v=3e8d115eb4b3
These self-led bike rides around the globe unite riders, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity or bicycle preference.
