LADIES BIKE RIDE (GUYS CAN TAG ALONG TOO)
BIKE RIDE & GUIDED TOUR

Saturday, July 13, 10:00 am–1:00 pm

LADIES BIKE RIDE (GUYS CAN TAG ALONG TOO)—Join a 13 mile group ride with members of Magic City Bike Collective, Emerge Miami, and the Women's Chamber of Commerce of Miami-Dade. Begin your ride downtown at the Historic Overtown/Lyric Theatre Metrorail Station on the mapped route (http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/229010485) and take a short trip over the Venetian Causeway to The Wolfsonian in the heart of the Miami Beach Art Deco District. Take in some refreshments and a tour of the exhibition Women in Motion: Fitness, Sport, and the Female Figure guided by FIU professors and guest-curators Dr. Laurie Shrage, Department of Philosophy and Women’s Studies Center, and Dr. Dionne Stephens, Department of Psychology. This ride honors the courage and determination of Annie "Londonderry" Kopchovsky, who in 1894 set out to circumnavigate the globe via bicycle to win a $5,000 wager that a woman couldn't perform such a feat within fifteen months. Free. Snacks sponsored by Endlessly Organic. For more information, contact [masked] or 305.535.2644.

    Anyone concerned about the Trevon Martin case's results? Since we're meeting in the Overtown area...Just saw on Dade's transit page for metrorail that Goulds and MLK stations are suggested as meeting points for peaceful demonstrations in case people decide to do so...

    • MRod34

      That and the weather were my reasons for canceling :/

      July 13, 2013

    • Vegan S.

      The verdict will not be out by then. The verdict on this weather is Not Guilty of Raining!

      1 · July 13, 2013

  • Tomas M.

    Is the ride still a go? Anybody with an update please? Tks!

    1 · July 13, 2013

    • Vegan S.

      The ride IS STILL ON. There is a 30% chance of rain. That is a 70% chance of it not raining.

    How's the weather looking for this Saturday? ? Will that storm be in our area?

    July 11, 2013

    • Koko M.

      I thinknis going to rain all weekend long

      July 11, 2013

    • Marcos

      Weather should be ok. Most of Chantel is suppose to arrive Fri night. If it rains on Sat, you'll probably welcome it since it will be pretty warm.

      July 11, 2013

  • Koko M.

    I need the address just in case it doesnt rain

    Just joined and was wondering if I could take my 6 yr old son? Does anyone take kids?

    July 8, 2013

    • Vegan S.

      A lot of people have brought their kids. They have them in a Child Bike Seat, attached to their bike, or a trailer. Children are REQUIRED to wear a helmet!!! We don't recommend having a child ride their own bicycle, unless they can keep up with the easy 10 MPH pace.

      July 8, 2013

  • Ada

    Can kids come too?

    July 8, 2013

  • Annabel G.

    this is my first time in this group

    July 7, 2013

  • Stan B.

    I hope to see some of my co-workers and RPCV's

  • Angela T.

    First time joining a group to go ridding. Looking forward to it.

    July 7, 2013

  • Liz V.

    This will be my first everything: joining a club, riding with CM, meeting and greeting new faces.. Looking forward to it but have lots of questions. For starters, where does one park their car. I’m not very familiarized with the area. I’m truly looking forward to this event

    July 7, 2013

    • Vegan S.

      We are meeting at the Overtown Metro rail station. There is parking there. If you live close to a train station, you can leave your car at home, and take the train.

      July 7, 2013

    • Tomas M.

      Welcome to CM ! One thing for sure...you're gonna have a blast! Can't wait to start ridding with the groups again!

      July 7, 2013

  • Tomas M.

    Can't wait! Haven't been to a meet up in a while!!!

    July 7, 2013

  • Koko M.

    this will be my first CM...I just hope I don't slow anyone down...I can ride but I'm not a pro yet....can I still ride with the group?...lol

    July 6, 2013

    • Collin

      We keep a slower pace about 10-12 mph and we stop at red lights. You should be able to keep up.

      July 6, 2013

  • MRod34

    Oh good. That's great to hear.

    July 6, 2013

  • MRod34

    First for me too...and I'm still practicing clipping on and off. ..so unless I get really good from here to then. ..

    July 6, 2013

    • Tracey

      Don't use clips if you don't want. This isn't that kind of ride. Casual.

      July 6, 2013

    Heeeyyyooooooo :D

    How about a Brazilian flavored bike ride? September 7 is Brazil's Independence Day. Sept. 14 would be the ride date. We'd encourage folks to decorate their bikes with Brazil's colors and flags and we'd visit Brazilian eateries in downtown and on the Beach. May be tricky because some of the restaurants may not be open for lunch on Sat downtown.

    2 · June 13, 2013

    • Vegan S.

      Liz, that's a great idea. Please come to one of our meetings on Tuesday, at 7, at sweat record. There you can suggest it to the group, and help organize it.

      1 · June 22, 2013

  • Collin

    Ride starting at Overtown Metrorail, heading over to the beach Wolfsonian-FIU museum, free entry, secure bike storage, exhibition of women in motion, free snacks.

    Route here http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/229010485

    Should be an amazing time.
