Women & Bicycles: Bicycles & Book Chat

Sunday, January 26, 2020, 10:00 AM — Silver Spring Metro, 8400 Colesville Road

Ride Tags: Free / Maryland /

As a part of WABA’s Women and Bicycles program, this event is only open to anyone who identifies as women/trans/femme. Not you? Lots of other WABA events at waba.org/fun. Know someone who should come? Please share this event with them! 

Books and bikes! Join folks from Women & Bicycles for a ride down Sligo Creek Trail to the Hyattsville location of Vigilante. We’ll explore the trail and then enjoy sitting inside and talking about a book. 

Which book? Take our survey – results will be announced in this event page and emailed to registrants on December 19th. The options are:

  • Pedal zombies : thirteen feminist bicycle science fiction stories / edited by Elly Blue. 160 pages
  • Ride the Revolution (nonfiction) edited by Suze Clemitson. 320 pages
  • Back in the Frame (nonfiction) by Jools Walker. 368 pages

Additional Details:

We’re riding for about 45 minutes from Silver Spring to Hyattsville. This is designed as a one-way ride but we will have maps and Metro suggestions for getting you back to wherever you wish to go! 

Please bring a bike lock for Vigilante and money is you wish to purchase coffee or food. Helmets are required by our insurance for all WABA rides. (Don’t have one? Email us for a loaner.) Please bring water and enough layers to keep you warm for the ride. 

Getting there: Silver Spring Metro is a Metro stop! It is also close to the Metropolitan Branch Trail – exact routing is dependent on Purple Line construction. Want to join us directly at Vigilante? We’ll be rolling in about 11am!

Do you have knowledge, including lived experience, that would be valuable to include in organizing or hosting this event? Please email me at ursula.sandstrom@waba.org – I would love to have a few folks helping to host this!  

This event is taking place on unceded Nachotchtank land. (Learn more here).
