Once upon a time, city employee Janis McDonald was counting bikes (yes, they have people that do that) and she noticed that only 1 out of 3 riders were female. Bummed that more women weren’t riding she decided to start the Women on Bikes Program.
Since May, the series of rides and clinics has attracted tons of ladies eager to get together, share experiences and bond over bikes. And, since this ride is put on by the City of Portland, they’ve got prizes to give away and a chance to win a Breezer bike if you complete an evaluation form! Wow, that would be cool.
Sorry it’s so last minute, but THIS Saturday (9/24) is the final ride of the series. To join in the fun, meet at Laurelhurst Park (SE33rd/SE Oak) at 9 am. The ride will go out to Marine Drive via the I-205 Bike Path.
