Fifth Annual Savannah Cyclofemme Ride
May 14, 2017, 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
cyclofemme2017Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel…the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood.”
— Susan B. Anthony
Ride together with the Savannah Bicycle Campaign on Sunday, May 14 for the Fifth Annual Savannah CycloFemme. The ride will start at 2 p.m. at SBC HQ located at 1301 A Lincoln Street and end at the south end of Forsyth Park (Park Avenue and Bull Street).
The ride will be approximately 6 miles and be great for beginners, commuters, racers and everyone in between! The ride is free, but we encourage participants to consider a donation to the World Bicycle Relief. Don’t forget your helmet and water.
CycloFemme is a Global Women’s Cycling Day created TO HONOR THE PAST and the emancipation of our grandmothers and great-grandmothers, for the freedom to choose and the chance to wear pants. TO CELEBRATE THE PRESENT and the riders who keep it rolling, bringing women’s racing to the forefront, pushing the limits, breaking down barriers and sharing the love of the bike with everyone along the way. TO EMPOWER THE FUTURE of women in cycling and the opportunity for positive social change.
