DC resident and year-round cyclist Anastasia Kolobrodova is organizing an all-women’s alleycat to take place in DC on International Women’s Day, Sunday, March 8! And if that couldn’t get any better, the proceeds benefit CASS!
According to Anastasia, the goal of the women-only alleycat is to get more women interested, comfortable and confident with urban cycling while learning about international women’s rights. The event will be the second all-women alleycat benefiting CASS. In 2013, we were the super proud beneficiary of the 19th Amendment Alleycat. (Seriously, just look at the pics and you’ll want to RSVP stat!)
We talked to Anastasia about what exactly is an “alleycat” and why you – and all your friends – should join us on Sunday, March 8!
First off, what’s an “alleycat?”
Why is it empowering for women, and why should they come?
What’s the connection between women biking and street harassment?
What made you choose CASS as the beneficiary?
Last but not least, why is biking awesome?
