Global Solidarity Ride

Its pretty amazing to see rides coming in every day.  I’ll keep this updated but for now – here are the lists, and where applicable links to existing rides.  If there is no link, its not a public event, or we haven’t received the details.  If you have more details, the best way is to share is to set up a simple Facebook event!  We’ll keep this page updated.  You still have time to take part and if you ride, wherever you ride, we would love photos!!  Thanks for being part of this inaugural event to support the women that dare to ride!   August 30th – we ride!

Please email us ride photos and share stories at after the event and we’ll be sharing the global outreach!
