PLEASE NOTE – We respect and appreciate our healthy allies and explicitly name that our mutual work is a space where the empowerment and visibility of QTPOC is centralized. For the purposes of Different Gear, ALLIE is defined as a person that does not identify as a queer or trans person of color whom is open to share opportunities to grow/find/acquire resources, visibility and advance the work in which we are already engaged.
While we understand that everyone’s financial, physical, and mental attributes are different, we ask that you wear a helmet. Please bring a lock to secure your bike after the ride and cash to purchase things along the way.
All riders will be provided with a complimentary bottle of water, light snack, and after ride refreshments. Bring a treat to share if you are able. Plan to indulge in free pizza, if desired.
This is a no drop ride, so no one will be left behind.
