This is a guest post from Megan Jones, co-founder of Hains Point 100 and a Women & Bicycles supporter!
Hi. I’m Megan. And, in 2012 I started a thing. Something that I had no idea that would catch on like it did.
What if I rode a bunch of laps around Hains Point and asked people to join me? Well, that’s what became the Hains Point 100 which has now become the premier December outside bike event filled with fun (and absurdity) for everyone!
Come join us on December 22nd. We already have a huge line-up of supporters that have donated some amazing door prizes and more! Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the updates of what we’ll have.
As always, this is not a formal event – we’re just getting together on a chilly Sunday to ride our bikes in a circle and have some fun! And we are raising awareness for WABA’s Women & Bicycles program. All levels of riders are welcome – we can’t wait to see you there!
Please let us know you’re coming by mushing on the big button below!
