***Here is the quick run-down***
— Complete details are posted on the form (linked below).
— Choose from a long ride ~20 miles or short ride ~12 miles +ferry!
— Sliding scale ($10-$20) to cover campsites, dinner, and breakfast. Please bring your own snacks/lunch for the ride.
— $9.25 one-way on the ferry / $18.50 round trip
***TO SECURE YOUR SPOT:***
— You must fill out the registration form. Just rsvp’ing on facebook will not secure you a spot.
— Send your payment ($10-$20) to Gina Collignon via Venmo (@Gina-Collignon) or Paypal (firstname.lastname@example.org).
— Registration closes Saturday 8/18 so we can reserve the right number of campsites.
Please direct questions via Facebook or in the last section of this form, We hope you can make it!
Update: We have to cancel this camping trip, but we hope that you can join us for one of these other rides next weekend instead!

Ever wanted to buy a bike off of Craigslist and don’t know how to do it? Ever wanted to share your knowledge of how to buy a bike off Craigslist? This is the event for you!
Come swing by the Silhouette Lounge in Allston anytime after 6:30 on 3/7 and we’ll talk and swap tips about the best way to go about buying a used bike and what to look out for.
The Sil has got popcorn (they just got a new machine last week!) and cheap drinks as well as ample amounts of water and soda available. Cash only, but they do have an ATM and there is a BOA ATM nearby.

We’re so excited to announce our new partnership with BCU to offer Grrrease Time at their bike kitchen space in Dudley.
Starting in March we will host Grrrease Time the first Monday of every month from 7-9PM at 375 Dudley Street.
Come bring your bike (or not!) to fix up, help others fix their bikes, learn by watching others, or just hang out with some cool people!
This is your friendly reminder that Femmechanics needs YOU to help make all the awesome stuff we do possible! As a volunteer-run collective, we need your ideas, enthusiasm and know-how to help make Femmechanics better than ever.
We are having an organizing meeting this Saturday, February 10th from 1pm-5pm at MIT in Building 14 (E) Room 309.
We will be discussing our ideas and hopes for this coming year of Femmechanics shenanigans.
Please come and share your ideas for 2018!
Join us on Wednesday, February 21st from 6:30-9:30pm for some sewing!
We’ll provide some reflective fabric, sewing machine(s), and materials – you bring a snack to share and something that you want to add some reflective fabric too.
Especially in the dark days of winter, being reflective is important!
Charlotte will be hosting so please email email@example.com to get the address!

Join Femmechanics for our 3rd Annual BABES BIKE BOSTON ALLEYCAT!
BBB is an alleycat for FTW (femme and/or trans and/or women) riders of all biking abilities!
We’ll meet at Paul Revere Park – registration at 2pm, start at 4pm.
This year we’ll be throwing something a little different at you! Instead of racing to whoever crosses the finish line first, this year’s event will reward a cunning, smart route in addition to speed and grit. We’ll have a long list of tasks and checkpoint locations worth a variety of points.
Every person must cross the finish line by 6:30. Whoever has collected the most points will be the winner!
$5 – $10 suggested donation as a fundraiser for Femmechanics
The ride will end at Smith Playground in Allston at the bike polo court. As long as weather permits, we will have a fun outdoor party to celebrate the best day of the year! Don’t worry. We have a rain plan ; )
