WE Bike NYC Upcoming Events


WE Bike NYC Happy Hour
Thursday, January 16
7-9pm, The Spotted Owl Tavern, 211 Avenue A, Manhattan

RSVP

Whether you're biking through the winter or taking some time off the bike, join us at our monthly social gathering to hang out, build community, and talk bikes! This event is all-gender, so invite your friends!

Meet a WE Biker: Helena Adams

Every volunteer brings something special to our organization. And WE count on them—whether they’re leading our rides or writing our newsletters or responding to mail or building our website. This month's volunteer is Helena Adams. Get to know her here!

What was your first WE Bike NYC ride?
My first ride was the Annie Londonderry ride during an August Summer Streets.  It was co-hosted by Bicycle Habitat. Over one hundred women showed up!

What's your favorite route?
My favorite route is the Greenway along the East and Hudson Rivers -- inspiring, breathtaking views.
 
What do you ride?
I ride a Pistachio colored JAMIS Explorer. Almost as heavy as a Citi bike, with tough thick wheels, it enables me to gleefully navigate pot-holes and construction sites like a carefree, tough, mountain biker!
 
Why do you love WE Bike NYC?

Soon after my first ride with WE Bike NYC, I was asked by the founder to join up as a volunteer. I worked in several capacities including marketing, event, and membership coordination. I am exceedingly proud of the group's tremendous growth through the years. I feel honored and inspired to be part of a group of such dedicated, intelligent, creative, passionate, welcoming and truly nice set of women. 

WE Can't Do It Without You!

WE Bike NYC is now an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. WE are still entirely volunteer-run, but it takes money for us to maintain our current standards of operation.

Every year, bike enthusiasts from around the Big Apple and across the globe dream of the first Sunday in May.

Yoga for Cyclists
Monday, January 13

If you can pedal, you can Padmasana. Join us for an evening of restorative yoga curated specifically for cyclists! You’ll learn a series of stretches that strengthen muscle groups often used by cyclists, and we’ll practice stretching areas of the body that typically become tight and inflexible after hours spent in the saddle. This class is BYOM, so bring your own mat. Namaste! $10 class fee.
