From The City Of Boston:
Boston Bikes’ Women’s Program Launched!
Boston Bikes is proud to introduce our new Women’s Program, aseries of rides, clinics and events to encourage women to experience the joys and benefits of biking, and to build community among women who bike. We provide support for women of all skill levels – from the first-time rider to the seasoned urban commuter. Help the Women’s Program grow! Follow us on Twitter! Check out ournew website. Follow us on tumblr, or subscribe to our rss feed. And join one of our upcoming rides or events…
Mom and Kid Ride 6/14
Please join us for our inaugural Mom and Kid ride, just around the corner on June 14th in Franklin Park. We’ll take an easy loop around the park and then enjoy a picnic and ice cream social courtesy of JP Licks. Bikes, kids, ice cream – what’s not to like? We’re offering a free kid’s pass to the Franklin Park Zoo to the first 100 people to register (requires purchase of adult zoo pass), so sign up now! And yes, we love dads too… mom and kid are welcome to invite the men in their lives.
Women’s Bike Social to Boston Breakers 6/19
For women looking for a (slightly) more grown-up night on the town, our Women’s Bike Socials provide a fun weeknight outing by bike, each with a different theme and destination. On June 19th we’ll ride from the JP Boat House to Harvard Stadium, where the Boston Breakers will take on the Seattle Reign. We’re offering free tickets to the soccer match to the fist 30 women to register. Space is filling up fast, so sign up now!
For women who never learned to ride or who can’t remember the last time they were on a bike, our Learn- to-Ride clinics provide on-bike training led by experienced urban riders. Our free two-hour clinics help women gain the skills and confidence to get on a bike and keep on rolling.
Finally, toward the end of the summer we’ll celebrate our success with a Women’s Bike Festival. Group rides, clinics, mountain biking, kids races, food, music, fun! Mark your calendars, August 16th, Millennium Park. Stay tuned for more details.
Help Grow Boston Bikes’ Women’s Program!
Every day more women are choosing to bike, but we need to keep the momentum growing to accelerate that trend. We invite all Boston Bikes’ friends to take the pledge to inspire more women to get on a bike.
