Just in time with some much needed warmer weather here in Chicago, is this year’s Women on Wheels event! Running from 9am to 2pm this Saturday (April 12th) in Pilsen, the 4-hour event will be full of great bike information, demos, and the chance to test ride a variety of bikes too.
- From 10:00 a.m. to about 12:30 p.m., three moms who ride with their children will be available in the child care area to answer your questions about how to have fun and ride safely with the kids.
- Some of the girls from the Girls Bike Club at West Town Bikes will be on hand to demonstrate simple bike repairs you can do yourself.
- Along with the various test bikes will be Divvy bikes too, to test ride and check out!
And.. there’s free drawing as well, with some great prizes!
