All library locations will be closed on Monday, May 27 for Memorial Day.
CycloFemme @ OPL
Every year in May, women around the globe band together on bikes to celebrate collective momentum.
CycloFemme celebrates women and builds community through rides on Mother’s Day organized by and for women. We welcome all riders, including women-identified, femme, trans riders, and their families.
Join us on Sunday, May 12 for a ride and brunch potluck along the Bay Bridge Bike Path!
Together with Walk Oakland Bike Oakland and Bike East Bay, the Oakland Public Library is leading rides from several library branches to the newly renovated Bridge Yard Building. Ride with us from Chavez, Main, West Oakland, or Golden Gate branches - or meet us at the Bridge Yard Building at 11:00am for a jaunt up the bike path. (There's a large parking lot next to the building.) Adventurous spirits can ride all the way to Treasure Island!
We will reconvene at the Bridge Yard Building around 12:30 for brunch, beverages, and insider info on the new East Bay Gateway Regional Shoreline. After brunch, riders will disperse, although some groups may ride to BART together (no group rides back to the branches). Join us for all or part of the day.
This is a family-friendly ride. All ages, genders, and abilities welcome. Please bring water, sun protection, and a bike. You can also bring a brunch item or snack to share; Lakeview Bicycle and your librarians will provide light refreshments. Riders younger than 18 must be accompanied by an adult and also wear a helmet.
Want to celebrate with a flourish? Decorate your bike with flowers and other signs of spring!
