To celebrate the achievements, persistence and future of women around the world, I have organized an international cycling event for Sunday, March 8th 2020 on International Women’s Day.

What is this? Come and celebrate women on your bike as we strive to promote gender balance in the world, raise awareness against bias and spread the word about this impactful day.

Who can participate?  Everyone!  All ages, all genders, LGBTQ+, non-binary, agender individuals, all religions, all cultures, all worldviews…you get the point, EVERYONE!

Is this easy?  It sure is, you pick a distance from 3 options available.  Then you bike that distance on Sunday, March 8th with others all around the globe.

How far do you have to bike? Three distance options are offered:  100K (62 miles), 50K (31 miles) and 25K (15.5miles).

Where do you have to bike?  For the 50k and 25K route, you select the route, these are personal rides.  For Randonneurs USA members doing the calendared 100K populaire, the routes are pre-determined.  Consult your Regional Brevet Administrator for details.  Indoor rides also qualify.

Is there a prize for doing this event?  Yep, of course there is a finisher’s roundel/patch (designed by Doug of Umbrella Works and produced by Falls Creek Outfitters.) All finishers of the event will receive a commemorative International Women’s Day cycling patch (scroll down to see super cool patch) for a minimal fee.  Payment $10.00 received via check or PayPal at: dmpiech@earthlink.net

Can I share photos about your ride/event?  Yes, definitely do share!  The following sites have been set up to share your adventure, ride summaries and photos:
