Every year around the world female cyclists get together to celebrate CycloFemme. CycloFemme is a worldwide socially-driven-grass-roots celebration of women on bikes. Their mission is to create a unified voice for women in cycling, encouraging and empowering more riders.
To celebrate CycloFemme in Melbourne The Squeaky Wheel will be gathering for a leisure Sunday ride, bringing together some of the best things in this world: Bikes, Op Shopping and Coffee! …maybe even cakes…
The Op Shop Coffee Ride route will be along the inner north bike paths, visiting a few op shops and stopping at bicycle-friendly cafés along the way.
Riders of all capabilities, age and gender are welcome – the ride will be at a pleasure pace and taking in no more than 10km!
