The 6th annual CycloFemme ride during May 12-14, inspires and empowers thousands of women to ride their bikes. The annual event unites riders, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, or bicycle preference to share in the joy of cycling. To create exponential positive change, CycloFemme has partnered with World Bicycle Relief to fundraise bicycles for girls and women in rural Kenya. All fundraising dollars will be matched by a challenge grant, doubling the number of Buffalo Bicycles we collectively fund.
