CycloFemme bannerOrganizers of CycloFemme-Fort Collins are hoping for better weather this year than they’ve had the past two years as they prepare for the 2016 version. The event celebrates all things related to women and cycling. Full details below or on their Facebook page.

Join us May 8th, Mother’s Day, at New Belgium Brewing for a celebration of women and bicycling!

Once a year, riders around the world unite, taking part in a day called CycloFemme. FROM THOSE LEARNING TO RIDE TO PRO RACERS, WE DISCOVER THE JOY AND EMPOWERMENT OF THE RIDE, TOGETHER.
CycloFemme is a Global Women’s Cycling Day created to HONOR THE PAST and the emancipation of our grandmothers and great-grandmothers, for the freedom to choose and the chance to wear pants; TO CELEBRATE THE PRESENT and the riders who keep it rolling, bringing women’s racing to the forefront, pushing the limits, breaking down barriers and sharing the love of bicycling with everyone along the way; TO EMPOWER THE FUTURE of women in bicycling and the opportunity for positive social change.

More below on the road ride, mountain bike ride, and townie ride. All rides will end at NBB with high-fives and libations.
