January’s women-who-bike brunch

My third women-who-bike brunch was the biggest yet, with nearly 20 women gathering together on a freezing Sunday morning to enjoy each other’s company and $3 mimosas. I love these brunches for the opportunity to sit down and have great conversations with so many smart, fun women. Next we’ll expand to happy hours, in the spring we’ll start some group rides and from there we’ll take over the world.

What an awesome group! I tried to get everyone’s photo, but did not quite succeed. Here are some cool blogs that were represented: Ding Ding Let’s Ride, This Little Bike of Mine, Bike Fancy, Two Pitties in the City (cutest dogs ever), Po Campo, and Chicargo Bike. If I indadvertedly left anyone’s blog out, feel free to leave a comment to say hi and link to your stuffs. :)

As always, if you’re interested in attending our next brunch on the first Sunday of February, email me at LGRAB [at] letsgorideabike [dot] com.

  1. How does everyone manage to look so well-insulated and stylish at the same time?? I find it such a struggle (unless I am wearing fur, of course). And in helmets, too? I’m really impressed. Hope I can make it back to Chicago this year and join your brunch.

    You ladies looked super! I’m organising “Wheelers’ Brunch” and our first meet up is end of the month! It’ll be a great opportunity for like-minded cyclists from Manchester to get together, talk about bikes as transport, sans lycra, with style and fun!

    I think we can take over the world ;) and make it better for it!

    This is such a great thing to do, to bring women together just on the common theme of riding a bike.

    I’d really like to set one up in London. How did you first put the word out? Did you make a plea on your blog or did you have a few friends already interested?

    Thanks again Dottie for getting these brunches going! I have met so many amazing women, made some new riding friends AND found a couple of places with great Mimosas!
