This is pretty awesome, most research shows that when less “risk adverse” groups feel safe doing something it means that it is starting to be perceived as a more mainstream activity. Hurray for everyone riding bikes!
From the City:
Register now for our hallmark women’s event of the season, the Boston Women’s Bike Ride & Festival, Saturday August 16th. Save $10 by registering before 11:59 pm on 8/8. Use code EARLYBIKE.
This celebration of women on bikes will be New England’s largest all-women’s ride and festival, and will feature scenic 10, 30, and 50 mile rides, skills clinics, family activities, music, an expo with bike-friendly companies, and more! Seasoned commuters, occasional cyclists, new riders, and kids are all welcome to participate in the event.
Join for just the ride or take part in a workshop taught by some of the best pro cyclists in the area to get tips on mountain biking, commuting, mechanics and more.
Adult learn-to-ride clinics will be offered for new riders or those who can’t remember the last time they were on a bike.
Discounted registration is available to low-income Boston residents.
And men on bikes – we love you too! Please join the festival as volunteers, or to cheer on the women in your lives as they take part in the ride.
