Join Speed and Sprocket Cycle Works once again in celebrating women everywhere with CycloFemme 2017! For the fifth year in a row we will assemble for an all women's event here in the Pioneer Valley.
We are planning on two simultaneous rides: one shorter route primarily on bike paths and at a slower pace, and one longer primarily on the road with a somewhat faster pace. In both cases, the focus will be on coming together as a community, making new friends, and riding at a social pace!
Both will meet at 9:30, with hopes of rolling out together by 10:00 am. In addition, both groups will ride en masse to celebrate the day together, with the long route splitting off in Hadley. Here are the tentative route maps:
Short Route (16 miles): http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/1040024375 (96.72% on the bike path and very flat)
Long Route (36 miles): http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/1040022637

Not familiar with the yearly CycloFemme ride?
"CycloFemme is a socially-driven grass-roots celebration of women on bikes. We are of a growing community, for a growing community, and 100% volunteer-based.
Our annual Mother’s Day ride unites riders, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity or bicycle preference to share in the joy of cycling. Year round, our global community inspires and empowers other women, by making their passion public and the joy in cycling contagious. In our first year, 163 rides were registered in 14 countries with many others joining in to celebrate in their own special way. By our third, we grew to 303 rides in 25 countries, including participation from Bicycle Share programs in three metropolitan areas to reduce the barrier of owning a bike. Ride with us as we Honor the Past, Celebrate the Present, Empower the Future of Women in Cycling." (http://cyclofemme.com/)

Bicycle Brookline's beautiful Beacon Street - without any cars to worry about! The tenth annual Brookline Bike Parade is a fun, family-friendly (ages 8 to 88+), free, five-mile ride to celebrate, encourage, and call attention to the environmental, physical, and social benefits of bicycling.
We’ll have the police in front. The police in back. And the police bicycling with us! Car free!
Come to Amory Park at 11:15 a.m. for free bike safety checks by area shops, food to purchase, displays, give-aways, and great music. The parade starts promptly at 1 p.m.!
There are actually two parades. They both start from Amory Park. Younger children accompanied by their parents cycle through Cottage Farm (1.5 mile parade). No training wheels! Everyone else – that is any cyclist aged 8 to 88+ who can ride five miles on a hilly course at a leisurely 8 mph with a reliable bicycle – heads up Beacon Street. (5 mile parade).
And when we get back to Amory Park? Get your free popsicle or ice cream!
Register online by going to www.BrooklineBikes.org or register in person at the event at Amory Park.
Remember. It’s not a race. It’s not a fundraiser. It’s a parade of hundreds of bikes! In Brookline. On Sunday, May 21, 2017. Join the fun!
