Bikin' Betties ☆ Golden Gala

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

☆ It's time to don your shiniest, sparkliest, goldest threads and ask a date or three to the innaugural Bikin' Betties Golden Gala! ☆ ☆ Do we need a special occasion to put on face paint and wigs, ride bikes, and dance the night away? I didn't think so! ☆ ☆ All genders and gender-noncomforming welcome! ☆ ☆ Meet up: 8pm at Drinks Lounge. Wheels down at 8:30! Beginner-friendly cruise that won't make your gold face paint run, I promise! ☆ Ride ends with a party at Stay Gold (1910 E. Cesar Chavez), for live music by Ben Ballinger, dancing, and special golden cocktails just for us! Invite all the friends! About us: Bikin' Betties is a (typically) ladies-only 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 gender identifies as a woman or is gender-nonconforming 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 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. Looking forward to riding with y'all, Adrienne
