She Bikes Cascade

Event date: 
Tuesday, April 7, 2015 - 6:00pm

81 percent of bicycle commuters in Washington State are male, 65 percent of our membership is male, and only one-in-four STP riders is female. We’d like to change that.

With a vision of bicycling for all, Cascade wants everyone to discover the joys, the empowerment, the practicality and the community of bicycling. And that’s why we’re excited to introduce She Bikes Cascade, a series of inclusive rides, classes, clinics, and social events to encourage more women to discover the joys and benefits of biking.

She Bikes Cascade will roll out in the coming weeks with classes and rides, all led by women instructor and ride leaders. A She Bikes Cascade launch party will follow on April 7 at Capitol Hill’s Vermillion Art Gallery.

Save the date!

We’d like to invite all bike-pedaling ladies to come have a drink, socialize and listen to guest speaker Megan Jasper who is the executive vice president of Sub Pop Records and a bicycling enthusiast.

 

Women Bike Advice Column

As women, there are a lot of topics relating to cycling comfort which are either not frequently talked about or just too embarrassing to ask a male salesperson at the local bike shop. Topics like: “I’m hurting down there” or “Do you have any tips about riding while menstruating?” or “Why can’t I find cycling clothes that fit?” You get the idea: personal, women-specific and potentially awkward to explain. We’ll do our best in addressing these topics here.
