FANCY. FIERCE. FUN. You are invited to join Fancy Women Bike Ride on Sunday Sept 22nd!
The #FancyWomenBikeRide was born in 2013 in Izmir, Turkey and has since become a global women’s movement. Every year, Fancy Women Bike Ride is held on World #CarFreeDay and has grown to over 120 cities worldwide.
Because women can change the world, and the bicycle can help. Women’s visibility in urban spaces is key to claiming the right to the city. Cycling is a powerful way for women to become visible in society and a completely new way to interact with the city. Fancy Women Bike Ride is an event for women, organized by women to call for infrastructure and inspiration. The more women who cycle, the more women will be encouraged to cycle. FWBR will remind Vancouverites of (and introduce others to) the liberating joys of cycling and inspire more women to bicycle in cities by riding together along the great Adanac/Union bikeway/Seawall.
- Dress code: Fancy, fierce, fabulous (whatever makes you feel beautiful, strong and great!), decorate your bicycle, pose for the cameras and take selfies, greet and smile at people during the ride.
- Bring your friends, your mothers, your aunties, and sisters and be prepared for a magical afternoon.
- Be inclusive to all womxn and support those who are new to cycling (offer help!)
