Women's Bike Riding Events in St. Louis! {July 2013}

There is a great local resource for riders in St. Louis called Missouri Trailnet (here). There is a specific suborganization that supports women cyclists in the Metro STL area. The group is called "Arch Women" (link here).

I subscribe to the Arch Women email to receive updates about events, such as Women's Bike Lunches and Happy Hour Bike Rides. (Hat tip to Melissa for referring me to them!)

Here's the email, word-for-word (links intact for ease of clicking):

Dear Arch Women,
Next week's Arch Women meeting will be on July 17, from 12-1 p.m. Hope to see you there! Details as follows:
When: Wednesday, July 17, 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.Where: The Railway Exchange Building, 12th floor lobby (611 Olive St.)Topic: Running errands by bike. Bring your lunch, and bring a friend!
We're also thrilled to announce the details for an Arch Women Happy Hour Ride. Even if you can't join us for the ride, meet us at Sasha's for a drink!
When: Wednesday, July 31, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.Where: Meet at the Downtown Bicycle Station (1011 Locust St., 63101). We will then ride as a group to Sasha's on Shaw (4069 Shaw, 63110)Distance: 4.5 milesCost: Free! Click here for more information.

You can sign up for emails at the Arch Women link above. I went to the June lunch meeting and enjoyed the company and discussions! Looking forward to trying to go again next week. Meetings are generally the third Friday - was every other month, but this month is 2 in a row, so that's a good sign re: interest levels.

I am going to scoot - the weather is really lovely today (85 with moderate humidity) and I might try to get a bike ride in before the sun sets.

Happy riding!
