Eventbrite - Third Annual Day of Dialogue and Demonstrations Women Bike Chicago: Welcome!


A loosely organized grass roots federation of women in Chicago from every organization and none is planning an event entitled:

Women Biking in Chicago:  a Day of Dialogue and Demonstrations

on Saturday, March 23, 2013 from 9 am - 1 pm.  on UIC campus  

This is by women and for women.  (Sorry, guys, but please tell your wife, girlfriend, significant other, Mom, sisters, aunts, and all of your female friends about it.)

Topics will include discussions about biking for fun, biking to work, personal safety, what to wear for the weather (no fashion shows!), riding with kids, getting back in the saddle after a long hiatus, and shopping by bike.  We will be having hands-on sessions teaching such as how to do easy, quick checks of your bike, how to fix a flat, and how to clean and lube your bike.  Local women who are certified cycling instructors will teach basic on-bike traffic skills.  There will also be a large bike corral with lots of bike options for women to try out for recreation, commuting, moving kids, and shopping.

There will be childcare available from 8:30 am until 1:30 pm.  RSVP strongly encouraged for childcare.

Date:  March 23
Time:  9 am to 1 pm
Place:  on UIC campus
Cost:  Free, but donations will be gladly accepted.
