Ladies, let’s go for a ride on March 8th

The Spinnsters are hosting a free bike ride to celebrate International Women’s Day

Bike Pittsburgh’s Spinnsters–our women and biking program–will be heading out for an evening trail ride to enjoy the company of other women.

This ride should be a great opportunity to meet other ladies who like to bike, especially if you show up!

International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievement of women. Women biking is political! There is a gender gap in biking, and together we are addressing it.

Bring out your bike for a Wednesday evening ride and meet new friends or bring your best lady pal. After the ride we’ll head over to Over the Bar Bicycle Cafe where we’ll be able to get drinks and food. This ride is accessible to beginners as we will mostly stick to the trail. We aim to create a safe and welcoming space for everyone.

RSVP for the Ride

When & Where

Date: Wednesday, March 8th
Time: 6:00pm meet, 6:15pm pedal. We will return around 7:30pm and head out to OTB after
Location: Healthy Ride station at S 18th Street in the South Side

BikePGH’s Membership Manager, Jane, and our volunteer Emily will meet you at the Healthy Ride station for the start (this is the ending location for the ride as well). Whether you’d like to drive your bike down, take your bike on the bus, or ride over to the start, this station is conveniently located near a parking lot, the trail, and E Carson St.

What to Bring

Front and rear bike lights are important because the sun will be setting. Do your ABCs and check your tire air, brakes, and chain before showing up. All of these things are important for your safety and the safety of others on the ride.
