This is a message from Jessica N, Jessica B, and Low- your friendly Babes in Bikeland organizers!
Previous organizers include Kayla Gibbons, Chelsea Strate, Kat McCarthy, Karyn Rudnick, and a host of other helpers, a large group of Grease Rag organizers, and tons of volunteers and community partners and sponsors. It takes a village to nurture and support an event like Babes in Bikeland!
Did you attend Babes TEN?! Our theme was CELEBRATION, and we were so happy to wobble, dance, and raffle the night away at First Ave Main Room with you! We hope that you felt the love on the WTF-only dance floor, got some sweet swag at one of the many opportunities to win prizes, felt free on your bike while you explored the city in your beautiful costumes, and had a super fun time at the stops along the route!
Putting on Babes TEN was a big effort, and we organizers recognize the need to care for ourselves and take a break. There won’t be a Babes in Bikeland “alley cat” race this year, but don’t worry! We would never leave you hanging! We are planning a whole weekend of events for community, and WTF solidarity.
Thank you for understanding how crucial it is for us to take the time to do some soul searching about the future of Babes in Bikeland. A diverse group of us have shaped and molded and changed the event over the last ten years, with your input and direction, and we want to be really intentional about the future of Babes. This year will be an opportunity for us to focus, re-imagine, and work as a community for a better event in the future!
