On Women’s International Day, we are excited to announce our global ride in support of the Afghan National Women’s Cycling Team and the new teams starting across Afghanistan. In a country where women have not been allowed to ride bikes, the first women to break these barriers are learning to ride, and racing outside of Afghanistan.
This year, men and women around the world will ride in solidarity with these amazing women, to show them that they are not breaking these barriers in a bubble, that the world sees them. August 30th, we ask communities around the world to get on their bikes and ride. Our partners, Liv/giant and Osprey Packs will lead the charge with their global network, and we will be setting up a page to collect your photos and your stories of support for the women in Afghanistan.
Mark your calendars now and plan to ride August 30th. Road, mountain, downhill, or track – if its got two wheels we want you pedaling together in solidarity! If you are interested in creating a community ride email us at firstname.lastname@example.org In the meantime, stay tuned for details and rides in your area! #solidarityride2014
