What better way to start off a special day than to strap the kiddos onto the Mundo and ride down the road to my aunt's house (yes, the aunt who insisted on riding on the the back of my bike). We towed her newly tuned up bike to her house where she hopped on and joined us for a ride to our CycloFemme meeting point at Discovery Park.
The CycloFemme ride was started by GirlBikeLove to honor the rich history biking has shared with the women's liberation movement and how biking still gives women a freedom that might not be otherwise accessible without it, empowering and encouraging more women to get out and ride, benefitting themselves and our health as a community and environment.
“Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel…the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood.”
-Susan B. Anthony
Since Jose is getting too close to me on our May Is Bike Month challenge, I decided to go the long way home and keep my lead strong. We also received our sunshades from Rocky Mountain Trail and I am looking forward to installing them and giving the boys some better protection from the elements.
