Bike Shop Hop anyone?

So here's an idea....let's all go ride bikes.

  

Have you heard of CycloFemme? I hadn't till just recently.

I have been charged with putting together alittle shin dig of a ride to support and celebrate women riders. I am all for it!

  

Details are not yet finalized but the skinny is this will be a ride for women, taking place on Sunday May 11th 2014, the same day a whole bunch of other rides for women are happening. So there is this crazy "being apart of a world wide thing" happening which is neat. Oh yeah and it's mother's day so don't forget that. We all have one am I right?

You don't have to ride a Surly.

  

But "It'd be a lot cooler if you diid."

Men are allowed as "man-bassadors" (kind of an annoying term but let's roll with it). Just know 'men' you are there to participate in a fun ride for women. So if you are not supportive you will be shanked and I will raffle your bike off to support domestic violence or keep it if it's really cool.

The ride will start and end at a local bike shop. We will visit each shop, say hello to the kind folks stuck behind the counters and maybe gather fun items along the way. I suggest a back pack, frame bag or carrying device of some sort. Maybe that's what the man-bassadors could be used for. Mules!

I'd like to know if there is anyone else out there thinking this sounds like a good time. Send me an email and let me know. We will think of it as pre-registering but not really. I'll be using pencil and paper and probably lose the sheet. But at least it will give me a glimpse as to how many lemonades and tea cups to bring.

So here's me christina@surlybikes.com

Where's you?

I’ve ridden a bike as a means of transportation for a pretty long time and in a lot of different cities across the country.  If I count places I’ve merely visited as well as places I’ve lived, I think I have a pretty good cross-section of riding all over the…

Hold On Loosely but…

Spring has arrived in the part of Minnesota where most of us live.  42 degrees yesterday morning at 6:00 felt like summer compared to what we had been experiencing.  I set out to cleaning my garage because the wife has been “asking” me to do it for a while.  We…
