The women-who-bike brunch continues to grow each month, to my great delight. The fourth official brunch last Sunday was the biggest yet, with 20 women attending. This was after 6 people sent their condolences due to the inches of fresh falling snow that greeted us in the morning. Quite a few of us, including me, opted for public transportation due to the weather, but the important part was gathering together and talking with cool women, no matter how we traveled on that particular day.
By the time sunny spring rolls around, we’re going to change things up and start having pot luck picnics. We’ll have to: no restaurant will be able to contain us!

After interesting, intelligent, silly and fun conversation and many huge cinnamon rolls, it was time to unlock our bikes, talk some more and eventually disperse until next month.

Some of us stopped by Women and Children First bookstore afterward, where I bought Lionel Shriver’s The Female of the Species (half way through – so good!).

I’m eagerly looking forward to the next brunch already. We’ll have to meet up for a happy hour in the meantime. :)
The next women-who-bike brunch will take place on Sunday, March 6. If you would like to be on the email list for the time and location, please email me at LGRAB [at] letsgorideabike [dot] com. The more the merrier!
I also created a group on The Chainlink so we can more easily communicate among each other and continue spreading the word.
