Celebrate International Women’s Day with a Women-only Ride on March 9th
Mark your calendars for the first ever EBBC Women’s Ride on Saturday, March 9. To celebrate International Women’s Day (March 8) our Executive Director, Renee Rivera, and board member and owner of Bay Area Bikes, Glenda Barnhart, will co-lead a fun social-paced ride from downtown Oakland to the Rosie the Riveter Museum in Richmond. We will learn about our local history of women working on the home front during WWII.
This fun and educational ride is a great way for new cyclists to gain comfort riding on our urban east bay streets and learn about great places to ride, like the Bay Trail. Seasoned riders will also have a great time on this mostly flat 24 mile round trip ride from Bay Area Bikes in Oakland’s Uptown to the Museum and back. We will do quick safety checks for rider’s bikes before we head out, along with tips for safe riding. Bring a helmet and $ for lunch.
