“I think the bicycle has done more to emancipate women
than anything else in the world.”
-Susan B. Anthony
Heard of an alleycat?
It’s an informal, scavenger-hunt style bike race, usually dominated by men. That’s changing for DC’s upcoming alleycat! On Saturday, October 19th, join CASS for an all-women 19th Amendment Alleycat, with a route centering around events, locations and the important ladies of women’s history!
>>>>>>>>> RSVP Now! Registration is $5 Proceeds go to CASS!
Less about speed and more about strategy, the 19th Amendment Alleycat is for women seeking to explore new cycling opportunities and build confidence biking around DC in a positive, inviting, fun environment. This alleycat will emphasize feeling comfortable and confident on the DC streets, especially when faced with street harassment. Bikers will not only learn about DC’s role in the women’s rights movement, but also have a chance to win rad prizes, including awesome cycling gear (!).
We at CASS are *pumped* and are so grateful for the two organizers, Stef & Bronwen, who chose CASS as a beneficiary. Male allies are encouraged to volunteer at check-points and join us at the finish for a raffle. Be sure to RSVP on Facebook & leave a comment if you’d like to volunteer!
