The idea is simple. Each year on Mother’s Day weekend, self-led bike rides around the globe unite riders, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity or bicycle preference.
The Christchurch ride will be lead by Action Bicycle Club. We will begin at our store at 2pm and ride through the park, along the Unicycle route to Park Ranger Cafe for afternoon tea.
This year, through a partnership with World Bicycle Relief, CycloFemme is raising the bar on their collective impact. A 1-to-1 matching grant, compounding funds for Buffalo Bikes for girls in Kenya, means our potential for positive change in 2017 is exponential.

PLEDGE YOUR SUPPORT FOR SAFE CYCLEWAYS
The attacks on cycleways are stalling and could potentially preclude major cycleways which meet Council’s own Cycle Design Guidelines.
We need you to get active and let the council know you support their work on the MCRs. We need you to let the ITE committee know that on street parking is never more important than people’s lives.
Spokes Canterbury represents your voice on cycleways in Christchurch. Pledge your support in the form below and we will personally submit your pledge to the Christchurch City Councillors and ITE Committee on your behalf.
Remember, to make your pledge count it is very important you add why you support safe cycleways.
Unless people who cycle get active, the promised cycle routes will be far less safe and possibly not even constructed.
A useful way you can get involved in cycling advocacy is to write your own submissions. It helps us a lot if you write submissions that support ours.
