Women’s Night Tonight!

Here’s a repost of an awesome photo essay about women’s night at the SLC Bicycle Collective! Every third Wednesday is Women’s night at the collective, which just-so-happens to be tonight!

We try not to get one-sided about any issue in the cycling community, but Women’s Wrench Night is something we stand behind. It is important to promote a safe space for women, and all people, to work on their bikes. Here are a few photos of a recent Women’s Night at the Salt Lake City Bike Collective.

Women’s Night is on the first and third Wednesday of every month from 5:30 pm till 9 pm, at the Collective’s headquarters at 2312 S West Temple. Women of all ages and gender orientations are welcome to volunteer to fix bikes or learn how to fix their own during Women’s Night. The Bicycle Collective is open to the public Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 pm till 9 pm, and Saturdays from 12 ┬áto 7 pm.

I love coming to Women’s Night because there are ladies of all ability.
It is important to have a safe space for women.”
