I admit I was pretty bitter in my Mother’s Day post about CycloFemme. Inside, I was jealous my mom and I weren’t partaking in our own CycloFemme ride! Till next year…
In the mean time, check out this inspirational account from Lisa Mullis in Central Arkansas at arkansasoutside.com:
After the ladies had a chance to eat and to visit with one another, old and new friendships being fostered, I tried my best to share the mission of CycloFemme as I understood it and why I got involved. The history of cycling as it relates to women and emancipation, suffrage and rational dress is important for us to appreciate the freedoms we enjoy now. It is imperative that we understand what access to two wheeled transportation can do for women who live in parts of the world that continue to condemn them for wanting those same rights and freedoms.
Ride on, ladies!
