2016_GoS_flyer_4webJust wanted to let you know about a super-fun event coming up, put on by our friends at Menstrual Monday (a monthly Seattle ride for women). Now, this is a race, but not all participants are there for competitive reasons. It’s also a fun ride around the city, either with a pre-arranged group of friends, or new friends met just before the word “Go!”

And there are always SOMANYPRIZES. Like, enough prizes for each participant. The checkpoints are great fun, too. Hope to see you there!

From the 6th Annual Girls of Summer 2016!!!!! page:

Menstrual Monday is pleased as punch to announce the SIXTH ANNUAL ALL-Girl Alley Cat, Girls of Summer! Save the date, we race on Saturday June 11th!

Join us for another year of miles, smiles, sweat, and laughter! Last year our number of racers swelled to 90 women who came together to celebrate bikes, the city, and each other.

As always, we will have prizes in fun and creative categories to encourage new or non-competitive riders (a MOUNTAIN of prizes, thanks to our incredible sponsors!). In the tradition of road racing we will have a Master’s category but this year it will be 45 and up. That means the first person age 45 and up will get a sweet prize.

Register at Gas Works Park starting at 2pm and race at 3pm sharp. Things to bring: map of Seattle, a lock, a pen, and a helmet.

If you are super supportive of getting more women enjoying bicycle adventures and want to help run a stop email menstrualmonday@gmail.com.

After party at The Boxcar. Awards 6:30 (ish). They will have $2 PBR specials for everyone. Plus there is Karaoke starting at 6. Who can say no to Karaoke? No one that’s who.
