WE Bike NYC Upcoming Events

WE Bike for the Cause: Fight Metastatic Breast Cancer!
Friday Oct 9 – Tuesday Oct 13
Online with Strava and Facebook
More info and RSVP

October 13th is National Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day. More than 150,000 people are currently living with stage IV metastatic breast cancer. One in three people diagnosed with early stage disease will later become metastatic. METAvivor (www.metavivor.org) is a nonprofit organization that raises funds for stage IV metastatic breast cancer research because this is how lives will be saved. 

Join us in our journey of empowering women, female-identifying, and gender non-conforming people by donating to fund more research to find a cure for metastatic breast cancer. 

Participants will collect $1.00 from sponsors for every mile they ride from Friday, October 9th to Tuesday, October 13th. If you’d like to sponsor a rider, please email us at info@webikenyc.org.
 

WE Learn: A Bike Commuter for All Seasons
Wednesday, Oct 28
6:30pm, Zoom
RSVP

I want to bike commute in the winter but it’s too cold and dark.
I want to bike commute in the summer but it’s too hot and I’ll get sweaty.
I want to bike commute in the spring & fall but the bike lanes are too crowded.

If these thoughts are preventing you from becoming a year round cyclist, then this workshop is for you!

WE will discuss best practices and share pro tips to get you biking confidently through all four seasons, whether on your own two wheels or on a Citi Bike. Don’t let winter cold, spring road repair, summer heat, or fall leaves become roadblocks to getting you on the saddle every day. Bike commuting is possible in every season!

NOTE: This event is all-gender.

Meet a WE Biker: Lynn Reublinger

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 Lynn Reublinger. Get to know her here!

What was your first WE Bike NYC ride?
I think it was touring the frame builders workshops which was amazing! 

What’s your favorite route?
My favorite route was the 9W route to the cafe. Everyone was so supportive – and it was my most challenging ride so far. 
 
What do you ride?
I ride a steel frame Bianchi Veloce road bike. I also ride a single speed Affinity for commuting and riding around town. 
 
Why do you love WE Bike NYC?

I fell in love with WE Bike and its first 5-6 members immediately! I was at one of the first planning meetings along with founding members Liz, Laura and Ayesha and loved the idea and concept. I was primarily riding alone or with large co-ed groups and it was a bit intimidating. After my first meeting in year one of its existence, I learned so much about riding, bikes and technique. 

My favorite thing about WE Bike then and now is its incredibly amazing women that I’ve met along the way! No pretentious attitudes, no judgement, just let’s ride bikes! Also its “real” no drop policy. All WE Bikers are genuine, smart and knowledgeable. Although I have not been as active due to health reasons, I always support WE Bike whenever I can! 

They are a unique and eclectic bunch of fantastic women and I think that’s what makes it so great! From happy hours to workshops and group rides, it is always nothing but fun!
 
Lynn is a thriver of Metastatic Breast cancer beating the odds and riding in our breast cancer research fundraising event. Many women are also changing the status of terminal illness to chronic illness due to research and scientific advances. More funds for research are desperately needed! Please join us and “Ride for the Cause”!

WE Can’t Do It Without You!

WE Bike NYC is an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. WE are entirely volunteer-run, but it takes money for us to maintain our current standards of operation. 
 
If you are looking for a way to support fun, free, noncompetitive bicycle events and programming specifically for women, please consider donating to WE Bike NYC!
