We ride for many reasons. Some of us ride to HONOR THE PAST and the emancipation of our grandmothers and great-grandmothers, for the freedom to choose and the chance to wear pants (Ed’s note: or not!). Some of us ride 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. Some of us ride to EMPOWER THE FUTURE of women in cycling and the opportunity for positive social change. Some of us just think it’s an AWFULLY CONVENIENT WAY TO GET BETWEEN COFFEES.
Whether all caps evokes women’s cycling activism or lots and lots and lots of caffeinated frothy milk for you, we’d love to have you along as we join our cycling sisters worldwide for our own Melbourne version of cyclofemme.com – a bicycle coffee crawl.
And as it’s Mothers’ Day, feel free to invite mum. The pace will be gentle, the ride will be not too long, and once she’s good and jittery, we’ll find an appropriate lunching venue with drinks of the kind to balance her out again.
Meet at the Edinburgh Gardens rotunda at 10am. BYO Keep Cup, in case numbers force us to get takeaways.

Lots of frocked-up cycling love,
