Summer biking weather is finally here! WE invite you to browse our blog for tips on Beating the Summer Heat, suggestions for Fun Day & Weekend Bike Trips, and some Safety Tips for Busy Summer Streets. Looking for people to ride with this summer? WE hope to see you on our Bike-to-the-Beach ride this month and WE invite you to connect with other riders in our Female Bike Forum on Facebook. Stay cool out there - and don't forget the sunblock!

WE Bike NYC Upcoming Events

WE Ride to Jacob Riis!
Sunday, July 15
11am, wheels down 11:30, at southwest corner of Bedford Ave and Eastern Parkway intersection, Brooklyn

Beat the heat and join us for a beach ride to Jacob Riis Beach in Queens. WE'll cruise the 11 (mostly flat) miles down Bedford Avenue, along the Belt Parkway bike path, and over the Gil Hodges Bridge to get to the beach. This ride is one-way, so folks can spend as much time as they like in the sun and surf. If you don't want to bike home, it's a short ride to the Rockaways and the A train, or you can try the Jacob Riis ferry to Pier 11 in Manhattan.

Please bring: Your helmet and water, plus a lock and any gear you might need for the beach (cash for the food trucks, bathing suit and towel, and sunblock)!

**Note: This event is for women, female-identifying and gender non-conforming people only.
