Once we drop in at the southernmost point of the boundary, we will head in and get warmed up, preparing us for our first big climb of the day up “Mile High”, it’s all downhill from there (for a while at least!). Over the course of the morning we will have the opportunity to ride many of the timeless trails that made the Copeland forest what it is today, accumulating the vertical so we can enjoy all the gravity based riding the forest has to offer us. There will be two groups heading out, one for intermediate riders, and the other will be for new comers to the sport. So tell your friends, everyone is welcome! Ride Guides

Brighton, UK

We’re splitting the ride in to two parts this year.

We all meet at the Peace Statue on Brighton seafront at 9.30am. We’ll ride along the seafront cycle paths to Carats Cafe in Shoreham. This bit of the ride is all off the main road, so suitable for (supervised) children. It’s also completely flat, so all levels of rider and all types of bike are welcome!

At this point one of us will lead a group back to Brighton, and I’ll be taking anyone who wants to do a longer road ride on a 30ish mile loop of the Sussex Lanes, finishing at The Velo Cafe for a coffee and some cake.

This ride is totally inclusive, so however you identify, join us to celebrate women on bikes.

That strong communities are built around strong women. That being on a bike brings you closer to your community, to nature, and to yourself. That from action comes change, and from visibility comes reality. And that independence, self-empowerment and personal strength are things we need every day.

It’s as easy as riding a bike !

CycloFemme is a socially-driven grass-roots celebration of women on bikes. We are with many others joining in to celebrate in their own special way. Ride with us this May 12, 2013 as we Honor the Past, Celebrate the Present, Empower the Future of Women in Cycling.

CycloFemme is a creative intiative of

“Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel…the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood.”

-Susan B. Anthony

is a NYC-based multi-disciplinary design firm driven by stories and how they are delivered. We create visual languages — across platforms — from the real world to the digital. An office of four women with different backgrounds, we are all city commuters who love the freedom that bikes bring to life in the city.

At the core of CycloFemme are the women, children, mothers, father, sisters, brother and friends who join us, support us and give this movement momentum. We ride together.
