    Thanks for helping to promote our Women Bike CHicago event. I’m sure that many of you have female family members & friends who may ride a little but are hesitant to ride for transportation – or for recreation except on park paths. Please encourage them to come. It’s a way to learn new skills, get info to overcome obstacles and meet other women who they might want to ride with.
