DATE
TBD
Meet at: Clock Tower in Lincoln Park, just north of Addison.
Join Women Bike Chicago for a ride & tour of the Frances Willard House in Evanston! We will meet at the Clock Tower, just north of Addison, in Lincoln Park. 
"Frances Willard was a radical social progressive who stood out against gender inequality and fought to give a voice to society’s disenfranchised. She exposed the inherent hypocrisies of the status quo and forever changed accepted societal norms."
In 1895, Willard's book "A Wheel within a wheel. How I learned to ride the bicycle" was published. Her bicycle, "Gladys" has been refurbished and will be available to view during the tour. The book is available for download here:

We'll grab lunch after the ride, so bring cash!
