What we're about

This group is for any fabulous femme who likes to ride a bike. Previously known as the "Illinois Women Cyclists" - we recently changed the name to be inclusive & to reinforce that this is an inclusive, positive group that is here to support & promote cycling in our communities.

The goal of this group is to connect all of us who like to ride. The goal is to help people get into to the super cool sport of cycling, support those who want to ride more (yeah!) and even help anyone who might want to try a cycling event (like a century ride or race!)

There is power in movement & there is joy in riding. Let's ride together!!!!
