“I am a woman who is free to ride a bicycle.”
That’s a pretty amazing statement — one made more amazing when I learned about the Solidarity Ride taking place around the world this Saturday. It’s an international event to show support for the Afghanistan Women’s Cycling team.
All you have to do to participate is RIDE! Take to your wheels in solidarity with the Afghan women that dare to ride, and remember the women that dared to ride before who paved the way for independent mobility and freedom for women around the world.
If you have the time and the friend list to accomplish it, you can organize an event and email firstname.lastname@example.org. If not, just get out and ride! Tag any photos with #solidarityride2014 on social media to add your voice to the conversation.
(Shout-out to Springfield and Willard, Missouri for already being on the list!!)
