Thanks so much to everyone for your support this week! Every comment and email means a great deal to me.
I have not told anyone outside of my bicycling circle about the hit and run. I want to avoid hearing – from now until the end of time – “I can’t believe you’re still riding your bike” and “OMG be careful!!!” This would come from a place of kindness and concern, but I just don’t want to hear it. So I am very grateful for all of you and for my women-who-bike group: people who really get it.
Here are some photos from Decembers Women-Who-Bike Brunch a couple of weeks ago. Strong, fabulous women who are leading the charge and having fun doing it.
If you are in Chicago and would like to join our Women-Who-Bike brunches, please email me at LGRAB@letsgorideabike.com. If you’re not in Chicago, I encourage you to join – or start! – a local social bike group. The benefits of community cannot be understated.
