SRP’s Women on Wheels kick-off event.
Next we coordinated a real no-drop group ride around Stanford’s campus with dinner plus another social lunch at an outdoor food truck park. Again engagement was high. Some members started making plans to meet up the next day and ride to work. Others were planning weekend rides.
The enthusiasm for Women on Wheels bowled us over. It was clear that a love of biking + the same office address aren’t always enough to build a community. It’s often that X-factor — identifying as female in this case — that solidifies or galvanizes a group.
For our next event, Women on Wheels is hosting a lunch with the TIBCO women’s pro cycling team. After that, we’re screening the movie Motherload with the hopes of introducing everyone, not just women, to the joys of cargo bikes.
