Down and out because you miss riding with your fellow lady cyclists?  Counting down the days until July 11th, when Menstrual Monday rides again?  Well, here’s something to ease your pain and tide you over:  the next big all-girls bike event in Seattle!  This Saturday June 25th will be the second annual Bitches Bike and Brew, a women-only pub crawl by bicycle.  Cost of participation is $15 per rider and proceeds will benefit Planned Parenthood, our nation’s leading sexual and reproductive health care advocate.   On top of supporting a proponent for women’s health care, the entrance fee will get each participant a t-shirt and a beer at the first bar.   There are some great bars on the route, which stretches from Beacon Hill all the way up to Green Lake/Phinney.  It looks like a lot of fun – make sure to check it out!

The Bitches Bike and Brew is going down again this year. This year’s event a benefit for Planned Parenthood of the Great NW. The cost is $15 and that includes a t-shirt and your first beer! RSVP here and bring cash for the registration day of.

Planned Parenthood is a great cause to get boozy for. They provide critical reproductive health services to women from all backgrounds, and one in five American women has turned to Planned Parenthood for treatment in their lifetime. The funds raised from this event will help them to continue to provide birth control and cancer screenings to women who would otherwise be unable to afford it (i.e. – it will not go toward abortion services, in case you have qualms about that).

The route has been finalized, and there are a few hills, so be prepared (and there aint no shame in walking up the hills either – biking drunk is hard!).
