Last year’s CycloFemme ride

What is CycloFemme?

CycloFemme is a socially-driven grassroots celebration of women on bikes (learn more at cyclofemme.com). Its annual Mother’s Day ride unites riders, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity or bicycle preference to share in the joy of cycling. Year round, CycloFemme’s global community inspires and empowers other women by making their passion public and the joy in cycling contagious. This year 285 rides in 25 countries will “honor the past, celebrate the present, and empower the future of women in cycling.”

Philadelphia’s CycloFemme ride is a collaboration between our Women Bike PHL program and the Sturdy Girls Cycling Club. The details:
