RLAG is our 3-part series women’s bicycling workshop
Walk Oakland Bike Oakland, with support from Bike East Bay, presents RiDE LiKE A GiRL, a 3-part bicycling skills workshop series designed for every woman who wants to ride. Our goal is getting more women comfortable, confident on their bicycles, and feeling more connected with a community of women who want to bike!
In our 2017 Season, we plan to cover these areas:
March 12 – The first workshop focused on commuting basics, just enough chatting to get the fundamentals and rules of the road etched in our brains; and a 5-mile skill-building confidence-boosting ride to test out some of the basic skills.
June 11 – this workshop provides tips on choosing the right bike(s), and offers insights from finding the best fit for your riding style to keep you comfortable and happy on two wheels. The workshop will conclude with a 10-12 mile flat-ish ride on the Bay Trail.
September 9-10 – Our season closer is a bike camping trip. Thrilling details TBA!
Every woman is warmly welcomed at our workshops! Suggested donations of $15 per workshop or $35 for all three accepted here. If you’re already a WOBO member (for $35), it’s on us. Ready to sign up or Join WOBO?!
As a bonus, join us at our monthly (every fourth Thursday of the month) Women Bike Happy Hour. Each month features a different watering hole where we come together off the saddle and chill. Bring your friends!
