For my 16th birthday I didn’t get a car. My friend Lanandra gifted me a heavy, red, 3 speed Free Spirit. I was grinning ear to ear. I had wheels! And wheels mean freedom. Susan B. said it right:
“Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel…the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood.”
In this spirit of female comradery the PSU Bike Hub hosts women’s specific maintenance clinics and rides. These clinics cover basic maintenance and help you soup up your whip in two shakes of a lambs tail. This female only forum creates a safe space for learning through doing and curiosity. Its also a wildly hilarious good time to crack jokes with lady friends while getting your hands dirty.
Come to our clinic this Saturday 5/30 from 2:00-3:00 pm. Then we’ll ride bikes to Oaks Park for roller coaster, root beer float, and bumper car shenanigans. Check out our Facebook page “PSU Bike Hub Women’s Clinics” for updates and tips. Hope to see you Saturday!
