Eventbrite - Third Annual Day of Dialogue and Demonstrations Women Bike Chicago: Great Job on the Weather

Great Job on the Weather

Although for a while it looked like we would be visited by thunderstorms, it turned into a marvelous weather day.  Thanks to all who joined us on Saturday, April 12 at Dvorak Park. You must have used your woman power to hold off the storms.

So many people made the day possible.  Special thanks to our presenters:

Angela Ford
Vanessa Buccella
Anne Alt
Veronica Joyner
Eboni Hawkins
Joanne McSweeney
Marlene Paez
Justyna Frank
Julie Hochstadter
Samantha Arnold

Kudos to our intern extraordinaire, Lucy Freccia for keeping everything on track.

To the volunteers who womaned the registration table, the bike corral, and the child care--we could not have done it without you.

Did you have a chance to try Divvy for the first time?  Thank you Divvy for giving us that opportunity.

Thanks to everyone who brought their own bikes so that others could test ride them.  And if you loved one of the bikes so generously loaned by BFF BikesLegacy FrameworksOn the Route, or Rapid Transit Cycles, talk to them!  They will all be happy to help you find the bike that YOU want.
