I wanted to send a short note to remind you that registration is open for the femme fondo women's ride to be held Saturday, September 8th in the tradition of Hope on Wheels. The club has been a long-standing supporter of the all women's cycling event historically held in Leiper's Fork. This year as the Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation focuses on special events related to what would have been Minnie's 100th birthday, they decided to take a break from administering the ride.

Through my roles in promoting women's cycling at Gran Fondo Cycles and personally, I knew that I had to step back into my event director shoes and insure that women riders in our area could celebrate their abilities to ride a bicycle with a special event designed just for them. We've thus created femme fondo to be a wonderful day for cycling in the country - encourage your loved ones to join you for a great ride and a tasty catered lunch from Whole Foods Market. This ride reaches out to women of all abilities and it is a great way to bring a non riding friend to our wonderful hobby of cycling.

Please follow the link below to our website created for the femme fondo and register for this special day on the bicycle!

We've set the registration fee at the estimated cost of $25 - a great deal for a designer T-shirt, a  tasty Whole Foods Market lunch, goody bag, and a supported, beautiful ride. Please register today and thanks for reading!
