Cyclofemme National Women's Ride, Portland Sunday Parkways Kickoff

Get ready for the fun ride of the year - this year's second annual CycloFemme ride.

Cyclofemme celebrates women on bikes, any and every way we ride.

Check out the web site: www.cyclofemme.com

This year, we have the great good luck to have Clever Cycles be the start point for our ride. Then we'll roll on out to Lent's Park, stop for mini-cupcakes, a confluence with at least one other CycloFemme ride, and a short inspiring talk by CycloFemme founder Sarai Snyder.

After the cupcakes we'll do a short parade ride loop between Lents Park and Ed Benedict Park. Temporary tattoos and balloons, oh my.

Those who want to can continue on the rest of Sunday Parkways course, or ride 'home' - back to Clever Cycles - with our group.

The theme for this ride is pretty dresses, and that's really open to your interpretation.

The ride celebrates women but is open to men - hoping that they do a pretty dresses interpretation, too!

Hope you can make it!

 

Visit the Sunday Parkways site for more information on the East Sunday Parkways kickoff on May 12.

 

If you want to help out for this ride, I need extra mini-cupcake bakers, as well as someone who might want to help with a bit of ride marketing. Contact me at [masked] if you can help.

xx

    I'd like to take credit but all i did was hand them out. Martina from Clever Cycles is the lady to commend. I did have a good time. At times I felt like the motorcycle cop that escorts the funerals, lots of racing around but great fun doing it!!

    As always, April has done a fabulous job. With help from her companion, Phillipa (pictures are worth a $1,000) aka Philip, everything was organized, atmosphere was enjoyable. Jaime - THANK YOU FOR THE FLOWERS! LOVELY!

    Thanks for the cupcakes and parade ride, April. Our "Ride Like A Girl" gals especially enjoyed the tattoos!

  • Kathryn M.

    Great, thanks April and Janis for jointly sponsoring this. As usually great people and a good safe route picked out.

    May 12, 2013

  • April S.

    Wee! No rain, no flats!

    1 · May 12, 2013

  • Helen M.

    Hey April! I'll come early on Sunday to help with tats. See you at Clever Cycles at about 9:30. Earlier if you need me.

    May 10, 2013

    • April S.

      Hi, Helen! I probably won't arrive until 9:40 so see you then, and thanks!

      May 11, 2013

    Hello, all CycloFemme riders!

    The ride is 5.5 miles from Clever Cycles to Lents Park.
    There is a gradual upward from 21st around Clinton all the way to around 50th. There's a short steep hill on 51st. Pretty easy from there on in.
    If you want to ride with us on a 2-mile parade, add that to total mileage.
    You can stick around and enjoy Sunday Parkways or ride back with us around 1 pm. See you tomorrow.
    PLEASE - all free rides are ACH (anything can happen). Come prepared with snacks and water, a little bit of money to enjoy the Sunday Parkways, and light rain gear (fingers crossed).

    Thanks to all my generous helpers - if you want to help with tattoos, please show up at Clever at 9:40ish. I likely won't be able to arrive any earlier than that, but someone should be at Clever at 9:45.

    Thanks!
    April

    May 9, 2013

    • April S.

      Suzanne, thanks! I do need cupcake help, but on Saturday. On Sunday it would be great to have help helping people who want to put on their tattoos (it requires water and sponges, which I will bring). thanks!!

    Hello, wheelers! I don't want to flood your boxes with email - but CycloFemme is almost here. If you want to see our routes pre-ride, Google CycloFemme PDX to Lents Park, for the return Google CycloFemmePDX to Clever Cycles. See you Sunday!

    Are you getting too full? I see you have 29 already. I can provide some gluten free cupcakes.

    1 · May 5, 2013

    • April S.

      Hi, Pat! I would love some gluten free cupcakes - however because of park regulations, they must be mini. I would love it if they also had white icing, as we are doing a bike mosaic of the mini cupcakes. Contact me - not too full for new riders...april dot streeter at gmail dot com

    Except, I'm a cyclobutch, so I probably won't wear a dress, but I'll celebrate everyone else in their lovely outfits!

    2 · April 8, 2013

    • April S.

      Hi, Kate! But cyclobutches can put funky bike skirts over whatever else they wear, no? Or a grass hula skirt, popcorn skirt, tool belt skirt...hmmm, maybe this should have been the pretty skirts ride instead.

      1 · April 8, 2013

    • Sev

      Im with Kate. I wont be in a dress but ill definitely be looking dapper! You can wear a dress for me ;)
