CycloFemme is a Global Women's Cycling Day created TO HONOR THE PAST and the emancipation of our grandmothers and great-grandmothers, for the freedom to choose and the chance to wear pants. TO CELEBRATE THE PRESENT and the riders who keep it rolling, bringing women's racing to the forefront, pushing the limits, breaking down barriers and sharing the love of the bike with everyone along the way. TO EMPOWER THE FUTURE of women in cycling and the opportunity for positive social change. Encourage women to ride and they will change the world.

Join UpaDowna in partnership with Bicycle Experience Colorado Springs, for a casual 6 mile, no-drop ride from Ivywild School, departing promptly at 8am and heading north on the Pikes Peak Greenway then back south to Ivywild for an optional breakfast/coffee at 10am! (NOT provided, rider must pay for food/drinks) Prizes and giveaways will be handed out before and after the ride! The first 20 women to sign up get a FREE CycloFemme Tattoo!

The ride is mostly cement paths with a little bit of dirt trail at the turnaround. We'll take the Pikes Peak Greenway starting from Ivywild/South Tejon area to the Greenway, north to Monument Valley Park and back south. We will also be sharing the road with cars for a three stop lights, heading north on Tejon under the highway to the greenway.
Helmets are suggested and please use your discretion if bringing daughters or younger riders to participate.
