After coming together for the March 2013 Day of Dialogue and Demonstration, Women Bike Chicago sponsored a variety of smaller events to keep us connected and provide opportunities for women to test out, learn about, or get back on two wheels.
There was the Going South Bike Tour which culminated at the Pullman House for tours. Talks were held at Women and Children First on Bike Commuting and Bikes on Transit by Anne Alt, and on Crash Recovery by Susan Levin and Leah Jones.
When the snow began to thaw, the Cherry Blossom Ride led the group to Osaka Garden in Hyde Park. Summer kicked off with a Ride to Chinatown, followed by a Tour de Divvy which was an opportunity to learn about Chicago’s new bike share by testing it out with a Divvy ambassador (and free passes!). Finally, a group headed to Millennium Park, picnicking to the sounds of Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles, the first all-female mariachi group in the U.S.
The Day of Dialogue and Demonstration will be back this spring; look out for details in the coming weeks. What other events would you like to see happen? Would you like to lead a workshop, ride, talk, or other event?
