The Girl Bike Love crew has been known to quote Susan B. Anthony -- "Let me tell you what I think of bicycling: I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world" -- and other feminist icons when talking about its mission to "empower, inspire, encourage more women to ride bikes." Find out why tonight and tomorrow night at the Outdoor Divas shops, where feminist pride means a woman should never have to ask a dude to trade out her innertube, tinker with her gears, or adjust her brakes.
Bicycle-curious? Pedal up to the "Pedal Your Passion" bike tech talks tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the Cherry Creek store (2717 East 3rd Avenue) or tomorrow at 7 p.m. at the Boulder store (1133 Pearl Street) for a dose of DIY, and -- because Outdoor Divas know how to party -- sip suds courtesy of Oskar Blues Brewery and meet some new cycling partners while you're at it.
"Be it a road bike, a mountain bike or a cruiser: no matter what you roll on, this talk is for you. We will go over basic bike mechanics, changing a tire, tools to have on hand and how to use them. Enjoy expert advice, be entered to win great prizes and learn about GIRL BIKE LOVE while you sip on Oskar Blues brews. Please RSVP to events@outdoorDIVAS.com"
