sisterhood-saturday-2

Come together on Saturday May 16th, to celebrate the women in your life with women throughout the region! Bring your bike and ride or tie up your sneakers and walk. It’s about moving.

We’ll split up into three groups, one group will walk the Marvin Gaye Park Trail (about 2 miles total), along a stream with lots of tree canopy and open space. The second group will bike 5 miles along the trail and neighborhood streets at a social pace for all levels (8 mph). And for those looking to go on a longer ride the third group will go for a longer 15-mile ride at a faster pace (12-15 mph). You can decide which group you’d like to join the morning of.

Date: Saturday, May 16th
Time: 9:00am – 12:30pm
Location: Minnesota Ave Metro Station
