Stand Nights

Our popular Stand Nights are back in 2019! Hodson's Bay Company is once again providing the space & snacks where women in the community can feel empowered while they learn about fixing common cycling-related issues and freely discuss topics that interest our riders. Stand Nights occur after an hour long ride.  

5/13 - Fix-A-Flat Night!
To kick off the cycling season properly, the first Stand Night is going to cover a vital skill everyone should know: how to fix a flat tire. There will be a quick demo and lots of hands-on practice. By the end of this Stand Night, you will feel empowered to confidently fix that flat whether alone or on a group ride. Hodson's Bay Comany is giving away free patch kits & an opportunity to win a raffle prize! Dr. Cline of Cline Chiropractics will also join us to discuss cycling-related aches & pains in relation to his field of medicine. 

6/24 - Yoga &  How to Fix a Broken Chain

7/15 - Indexing Gears & Guest Speaker

8/26 - Chamois Talk & Saddles

History

The Wabash River Cycling Club Women’s Ride began in 2016 as an idea between Laura Furey and Pat Boling to “just get more women out riding” in the community. Monday night rides starting from Hodson’s Bay Company evolved into the ride of today which requires not just one, but four, ride leaders to meet the demands of the women in the community. 

Over the years this ride has grown into a contingency of strong and independent women who attend our rides for a variety of reasons. Some join for companionship, some for the challenge, and others for building confidence in a judgement-free environment. Despite their original motivation for coming out to ride, they all leave with a renewed sense of community and solidarity.
