Why WE Ride: Gearing Up

WE Bike NYC is organizing ten women from five organizations to ride 262 miles on bicycles from New York City to Washington, DC to represent their communities at the nation’s largest annual bicycle advocacy event, the National Bike Summit on March 3, 2014. WE are so pleased to be supported by WomanTours, Bicycle Times Magazine and Transportation Alternatives. For more about the ride, check out our fundraising page HERE!

Now that you have gotten to know who we are, learn more about us and our process. WE will be rolling out a series of guest posts from our riders and sponsors. 

Kaelin Proud share more about her work with Gearing Up and what riding means to the women in the program…

Watching Gearing Up clients graduate over the past 4 years has taught me a valuable lesson: bicycles change lives.  And witnessing  women ride their way to sobriety and earn their own bicycles has opened up the cycling world to women all over Philadelphia – inspiring women to advocate for each other!
