ONLINE: Women* Bike Book Club

Book cover featuring woman of color riding a road bike

The Women* Bike Book Club is meeting again via Zoom on Thursday September 3!

We'll be discussing Revolutions: How Women Changed the World on Two Wheels, by Hannah Ross. Put a copy on hold for pickup at one of our sidewalk pickup locations, or check out the e-book via OverDrive

From the publisher: "More than a century after they first entered the mainstream, bicycles and the culture around them are as accessible as ever - but for women, that progress has always been a struggle to achieve, and even now the culture remains overwhelmingly male. In Revolutions, author Hannah Ross highlights the stories of extraordinary women cyclists and all-female cycling groups over time and around the world, and demonstrates both the feminist power of cycling and its present-day issues. [...] Revolutions also celebrates women setting records and demanding equality in competitive cycling, as well as cyclists in countries including Afghanistan, India, and Saudi Arabia who are inspiring women to take up space on the road, trails, and elsewhere. Both a history of women's cycling and an impassioned manifesto, Revolutions challenges a male-dominated narrative that has long prevailed in cycling and celebrates the excellence of women in the culture."
