Bikin' Betties Crawl For A Cause says
Pedicab Prom was such a blast!! (My hangover is still reminding me!) So let's just keep the good times rollin', shall we?

This coming Monday coincides with a super fun event at Coco Coquette, Austin's incredible, magical wig shop on the eastside. We will meet there at 8pm and browse the wigs and clothing in the pop-up (drive-up?) fashion truck. No purchase necessary to join the event, but **if** you purchase a wig, you get a complimentary professional makeup session (I'll take iPhone glamour shots), and 10% of the proceeds go to SafePlace, a local women's shelter and wonderful organization that works to end sexual and domestic violence and abuse. At 9pm, we'll take off on a short eastside cruise and end at Drinks Lounge and/or Craftsman, two neighboring bars that are offering drink specials to those in wigs. Come play dress up in support of a great cause! Hope you all can make it!

Here is the official Wig Crawl event invite:

About us: Bikin' Betties is an all-ladies bike ride on Monday nights. It's a great way to meet fellow female cyclists, get a bit of a workout, learn awesome bike routes around your city, and become more skilled and confident on your bike. Anyone who identifies as a woman is welcome. (Boys, you know we love you, but every now and then we need our lady-time. Thanks for respecting us and letting us do this ride without you ♥)

These are no-drop rides, meaning no one gets left behind. We typically alternate between doing a 5-10mi. ride at a casual pace one week, to a slightly faster 15-20mi. ride the next. We usually end at a bar/restaurant/coffee shop where we can hang out, drink some dranks, and talk about how badass we are.

If you gender identify as as a woman, and like to/would like to ride a bike, join the Bikin' Betties facebook group to stay in the loop with events and discussions:

Social Cycling Austin rides AS traffic and NOT AGAINST it. We stop at red lights, yield the right of way and let cars pass as best we can. We don't block intersections. We are cool to both our fellow riders and the other traffic on the road. If you need to brush up on the rules, click here:

What you need: Working front and rear lights, spare tubes so you're not stranded with a flat, a lock, your ID, cash to tip your lovely servers/bartenders, and it's always a good idea to wear a helmet.

REMINDER: The goal has always been to create a safe environment for all riders, but we cannot control every rider's behavior, nor do we desire to. We promote personal responsibility, and it is each rider's responsibility to take care of themselves, and if they choose to ride with us, then they accept those risks inherent in riding a bicycle with a large group of other people riding bicycles.
