June 5: Heels on Wheels ride and Women and Cycling meetup

 Hey gals!

This Saturday is a "Heels on Wheels" ride (Atlanta's version of cycle chic). We'll meet at the northern end of Woodruff Park (corner of Peachtree Street and Auburn Ave) prior to 6:30 pm, at which time we will ride stylishly around town for about an hour and wind up at Sauced for a beverage. The pace will be fairly leisurely and we'll make sure everyone can stay together.

Once we reach the restaurant, we'll have a conversation about women's issues related to cycling. If you just want to come for the conversation, expect to meet at Sauced around 7:30 pm, and please understand if the touring group is a tad early or late getting there! Talk may revolve around clothing questions, sweat (yuck!), bicycles and equipment, advocacy, safety, information and resources, and how to support other women in their bicycle-riding interests.

If there is heavy rain (and who can tell these days), the entire thing will be postponed until June 12th. Please check the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition event page for current updates. Whatever the weather status, a rain jacket or poncho might be a good idea. Bring your lock, too, so you can stop at the restaurant with us.

All women are welcome. Dressing up is strongly encouraged. Nothing makes people look twice - or think twice - like a group of well-dressed friends out for the evening entirely on pedal power. If you ever wanted to try riding in a skirt or your favorite pair of heels (or wedges as shown), this is the time to do it! And check out the Evoluer blog for some inspiration. And remember, riding in heels is way easier than walking in 'em!

See you there!
