Ladies. The details about the August have been set. This month we’ll be celebrating ‘Parks.’ Parks de’ jour will be the theme of our ride. Parks are so important and slowly but surely, more parks are popping up which is so important when creating and maintaining a sustainable city / community. You gather in parks. You spend time in parks. You create friendships and conversations in parks. Parks are community building and neighborhood building.
We will begin with our meet n greet at Caffe Apropos on the corner of 3rd and Michigan in Harrison West at 6p. Close to seven, we’ll ride off and visit parks: Goodale, The Columbus Commons, Genoa, Scioto Mile, and Fetch Park. During the middle of our ride, we’ll be stopping at the awesome ‘walk up’ Jeni’s in German Village Bring cash if you want Jeni’s.
Bring your moms, bring your kids, bring your girlfriends or just bring yourself. This ride is about women empowerment on two wheels. Women are the majority transportation with our kids so showing the kids at an early age that the bicycle can be just as reliable as the car is essential.
We had close to forty women join us for July’s ride. Incredible. Let’s expand!
We will also be supporting two local businesses as well. Showing that bicycles stimulate the economy just as much as drivers is also important when it comes to future bicycle development, like taking away a parking spot and putting in an on-street bike corral that parks 12 bikes instead of one car. People first!
If you have any questions about August’s ride, please email me. My contact email is under the ‘About’ tab. I look forward to seeing you all
Be safe and keep riding!
