Hi! I just moved to Boston so I dont know long distance any female cyclists yet. I'm going to do the Maine Women's Ride June 7 (Sunday) up in Freeport Maine and I have a car and extra space on my bike rack. It's about a 2.5 hour drive. I'll be going up Saturday afternoon and staying at a coworker's place overnight. I'll be doing the 62 miler, but there are lots of milage options. Any interest? Here's the website for more details: http://mainewomensride.com/

A friend of mine in Sunnyside who isn't wrenchy is on the verge of selling her bike - something is making it hard to ride, and she can't diagnose what's going on and is getting pretty frustrated. She's petite and rides a child's backpedal cruiser bike.Any folks have leads on a particularly not-mansplain-y shop in her area, or a womens/trans safe space maintenance night like the ones offered by the Community Cycling Center in Portland, or a kind cyclist with some spare energy to meet up with her and take a look?

Answer the call to ride and join the Seattle Cycle Sirens for a women’s ride around Lake Sammamish! The ride is 22 miles on mostly flat terrain. We will start at Pickering Farm and go around the lake counterclockwise. The Ride Leaders will be leading Steady (12-14 mph on the flats with no headwinds or tailwinds) and Moderate paced rides (14-16 mph). Those who wish to ride at a faster pace are welcome to do so, but it will then become a self-paced ride for them. Slower riders are also welcome to take the route at their own pace as this is a NO-DROP ride and we will regroup as needed along the way. This ride is about 22 miles long on mostly flat terrain. The ride will begin at 8:30 a.m., so please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early to ready your bike, sign the waiver and participate in the SMART safety briefing. Riders are expected to have the following with them: water, a spare tube, a pump and other tools to change a flat tire. Print a cue sheet if one is desired.

Check out the job posting for the part-time Women & Bicycles program coordinator:http://www.waba.org/blog/2015/05/seeking-a-part-time-women-bicycles-program-coordinator/A little background:The Women & Bicycles program was created in 2012 to increase bike commuting modeshare among women (26% in D.C., 21% in MD, and 26% in VA), by creating a close-knit community for women who already bike and inspiring this community to facilitate mentorship with the women in their own lives who don’t already bike.

Hi ladies!I've spent the last year designing a bike-friendly skirt for women, called the Bicycle Wrap Skirt, with hidden fasteners underneath the bottom hem to prevent fly-up while riding, pockets to secure valuables, and removable straps to keep the skirt out of the tires. It's designed to get a woman through her whole day regardless of transportation.Next week, we are launching our Kickstarter campaign (starting on May 18th) to raise money for our first production run at an employee-owned sew shop in the USA. We're using sustainable materials, and we will be pre-selling the skirts on Kickstarter along with some other great biking and skirt accessories. We're announcing our launch first through our newsletter, so if you'd like to keep up with it, you can sign up on our website. Or you can read more about the Bicycle Wrap Skirt at www.forestandfin.com. Our soft launch is May 18th, and we'll begin promoting it on social media on the 19th.If possible, we’d love your help in spreading the word! A simple tweet or FB post next week will do (we're @forestandfin on Twitter, FB, Instagram, etc). Or simply tell a friend about it. Thanks so much!Happy Wednesday,Lara Neece

Hey all!  A friend of mine has recently launched a new project called Route Feminent. A play on Route Permanent, a French term for long-distance cycling routes that can be ridden any time, the Route Feminent sticker pack features stickers styled like the I.D. stickers found on professional cyclists' bikes. Proceeds from these stickers will go directly to funding adventures for women and LGBTQ cyclists. You'll find photos and stories from these riders' journeys on the site as the project continues and more riders get funded.So two things: 1. You can purchase a sticker pack to support women's and LGBTQ cyclist's adventures.2. They're also looking for riders that would like to share their stories with the site.

Hello everybody!I'm raising money for Bike & Build (bikeandbuild.org). It's an awesome, awesome non-profit organization -- the participants bike across the USA building affordable housing with affordable housing organizations. We, the participants, are fundraising in order to provide grants to affordable housing organizations and to give to communities who help us out! I'm about $2,000 away from my $4,500 goal. I've asked people I know and have approached some strangers. I'm hosting a yard sale and doing a raffle this May. I don't think this will get me $2,000 though. I have a month more to do fundraising (I was accepted since late March and have been fundraising since then!) Does anybody have ideas on how fundraising that worked for you or your organizations- maybe specifically in Chicago?I called the Park District and they told me I'd need a permit with liability insurance so that's out of the question. I've asked some businesses if they could sponsor me or if I could host something in their business but they've either ignored me, said no, or given me a long date away.Does anybody have any ideas at all? I super appreciate any help!!!!!Here's my Bike & Build profile in case anybody was wondering: http://bikeandbuild.org/rider/8367

Strong women make strong movements. Sunday Parkways’ lead volunteers, our Superhero Coordinators, have had wonderful women represented here. As it is with great women leaders, they move on to bigger things that await them in our movement – some with jobs with Sunday Parkways and some in our partner organizations. It has been amazing. However, our pool of new recruits are “grown” from our Mobile Superhero pool – which is short on women. Take a look at the email from our Volunteer and Course Management Lead, Neal Armstrong below. We would love to see you, you strong women you, or your women friends out on the routes this year with us as Mobile Superheroes and maybe see if Superhero Coordinator spots are a great, fun fit. Let me know if you have questions or thoughts or if you would like to sign up. We would love to have you. Thanks. ***** I'm writing to you to see if you would help Sunday Parkways and me with some suggestions and feedback,, and possibly even volunteering yourself. Our highest volunteer leadership position, Superhero Coordinator, needs more women. These A++ volunteers spend the whole day teaching and supporting volunteers, and managing route logistics, while riding 15-20 miles with a loaded trailer. They are incredible and the secret to our success. New coordinators come from our team of Mobile Superhero. These cyclists roam the streets, solve problems. In order to fill our Superhero Coordinator position with women next year, we need to seek women this year who would like an active volunteer role as Mobile Superheroes. Our goals are to develop more positions, and build on the strengths and unique voices we find in our pool of volunteers. There is a great opportunity in Parkways for more women to get involved, where experiences and ideas result in real change. Additionally, for those underemployed and who love the work, more job and professional growth opportunities exist with Axiom. So, this email is my first step in trying to connect with more women interested in supporting Parkways. Here is the Mobile Superhero job description. >> CLICK HERE If you know any women looking for a fun, leadership position by bike, please pass along the job description. Encourage them to volunteer or reach out to me. If you know any teams of women cyclists (5 or more), there are fundraising opportunities available too! Finally, I would appreciate any thoughts on our approach to the volunteer job and the community of women cyclists. Your input will really strengthen this program. Thanks, Neal Armstrong Axiom Event Productions 503.473.3547
