You're invited to the International Women's Day: Together We Ride Event!
International Women's Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and calls to action for accelerating gender parity. Let's celebrate strong randonneusses and female cyclists, and make a commitment to inspire more girls and women in cycling. This year's theme is "An equal world is an enabled world." Men, we welcome you to ride with us, but highly encourage you to invite a female cyclist to ride as well. We would love to keep representation at least 50% women.
