We'll meet at 10:00 a.m. in front of the Lafayette Memorial at 9th Street and Prospect Park West for our CycloFemme slow roll group ride. 

This gentle ride through Prospect Park is geared to those who are beginners, or who are not yet comfortable riding in groups or riding with on-street traffic. We will review shifting gears and other safety tips before we complete 1.5 laps around the park. After our ride we will stop at Nethermead field to practice removing and installing our bike's back wheel! Participation in wheel exercise is not required but highly recommended.

Learning simple tricks to confidently remove and install your rear wheel will give you the confidence needed to take on future flat repairs and handle general maintenance issues that may come your way.

"CycloFemme is a grass-roots global celebration of women’s cycling. Every year, on Mother’s Day (US), women around the world share in the joy and empowerment of riding a bike by coming together in self-initiated rides and sharing their stories online with #CycloFemme. 

Whether a short, social spin of two friends or a pro team race, the spirit of togetherness is what makes any bike ride a CycloFemme ride." -
