Clitical Mass: A Critical Mass Bike Ride & Celebration With An All Woman Twist!

At the Olympic Rings in Eau Claire Plaza (3 Street SW between the Eau Claire Market, the YMCA and Prince's Island)

Women from all walks of life will be taking their bikes to the streets in Calgary's first women only bike ride. All women are welcome to come to this event.

After a half hour critical mass style ride through the core and downtown streets, bikers will arrive in the park for a celebration. Activities include women entertainers, community groups, and outdoor fun. There will be a vegan bake sale, refreshments, and FREE FOOD, courtesy of the women of Food Not Bombs!

This events aims to minimize women's isolation from one another and create a safe, women's only space. Events like this validate women's community building and create safe community spaces where all women can have a voice, and know that they are not alone and that they have support.

BYOB (Bring Your Own Bike), but if you don't have one, arrive half an hour early to get a loaner. Children are welcome and encouraged to ride, and child care will also be provided.

This event is supported by: The Arusha Centre, Calgary Dollars, the Calgary Foundation, The Women?s Centre, and The Goodlife Community Bike Shop.
