Come out, connect, and socialize with other lady cyclists. We will do a variation of a city loop, approx 20-25 miles. The route planned currently includes 3 climbs, but we can adjust to a route with 1 or 2 climbs based on group consensus (and skill level) when we meet up. All bikes welcome. The pace will be easy and supportive.

BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) currently restricts which stations people with bikes can use during commute hours (7:05am to 8:50am and 4:25pm to 6:45pm), which is totally annoying and unfair. They need to figure out a better way to accommodate people with bikes so that they can use the public transportation system at all times.
Recently the opportunity has come up to help improve BART’s bicycle service by providing feedback via their bike survey. Please help us make a statement by taking BART’s quick 5 minute survey within the next couple days, as they are likely to take it down soon.
Please tell BART:
1. No black out periods for bikes on BART.
2. Bikes allowed on escalators at all times.
Both these proposals were floated by a BART director, but BART staff shot him down. We’d love to show the BART board of directors that these ideas have the community’s support.

The Interbike International Bicycle Expo is happening next week in Las Vegas! The massive week-long trade event is celebrating it’s 30th anniversary and this year they are expanding their Women’s Lounge and will feature events that highlight women’s products and influential female leaders in the industry. The Women’s Lounge at Interbike hopes to help retailers gain insight on how to better serve the female segment of the market (long over due!) The event will feature a Women’s Product Showcase, a seminar on the “Buying Power of Women” and an Executive Roundtable with top-level female industry leaders. With around 24,000 in attendance, Interbike is a massive showcase for all things bike related and it’s nice to see them trying to incorporate and promote the female perspective. In addition to all the formal trade show happenings, there will also be rides, alley cat races, fashion shows, happy hours and many more opportunities for general debauchery. (Wish I was going!)
If you are headed out to Interbike make sure to swing by these booths and say what’s up to the SF homies
Kozo, a rider from Japan, landed a fixed back flip in front of hundreds of people at the first Red Bull Ride + Style event in San Francisco last Saturday, April 30th. The sun was shining and tons of people came out to watch the event, which featured a track race and a trick competition. There was only one female participant this time around but hopefully as events like this become more common we’ll see more girls getting involved.
