RiDE LiKE A GiRL Part I
THIS SUNDAY! Woohoo!
The first of our 3-part women's bicycling workshop series kicks off this Sunday, April 10th!
Walk Oakland Bike Oakland, with generous support from Bike East Bay, presents RiDE LiKE A GiRL, a 3-part bicycling skills workshop series designed for every woman who wants to ride. This first workshop (April 10th) focuses on commuting basics, just in time for Bike Month (May) and Bike To Work Day (May 12, 2016).
Meet us at Fruitvale BART Bike Station around 12:30 for safety checks. Workshop begins at 1pm. We will dedicate the majority of our time on the road to practice on all kinds of bikeways and turning movements. Bring your bike + helmet, stories of biking past and a smile.
Meet EMiLY, our 2015 RLAG All-Star!
This is a photo of Emily Wheeler just one year ago in our very first RiDE LiKE A GiRL workshop. That day she said she wanted to “go from being someone who mostly drives to someone who mostly bikes.”
We can’t take all the credit, but Emily is out there on the road today, pedaling away; and we love to see her face at bike events around town.
