The second year of Babes Bike Boston was the best yet, and we as the organizing team could not be more proud to see all you babely sharks come out to participate in this years event. Thank you to everyone for diving deep into the ocean with us!
In total 84 babes came out to ride, and we are so proud to see this event grow and reflect the growth of Femmechanics in the past year. This event would not be possible without the amazing community that Femmechanics has built in two short years of existence!
This years sharks discovered hidden creatures on a bridge, chased a shark in a park, smashed the system, fished for positive thoughts, took 2 different kinds of sealfies, wrote lune poems, drew sea creatures on bikes, signed petitions for bike infrastructure, and found holes in tubes (while blindfolded!). A huge thank you to all the volunteers who helped make all these check points possible, and to our volunteers taking photos and at the finishline!
We also want to give a huge thank you to all of our sponsors who helped make this event possible. We are so grateful to our community of bike brands, local businesses, shops, and more who support the FTW (femme/trans/women) bike community. Please support them, because they support you! Thank you All-City, Surly, Banjo Brothers, Kryptonite, Craft, Bern, Ferris Wheels, Trash Bags, Pike Powdercoating, Bella Luna, Bikes Not Bombs, Red Bones, Boston Organics and AlFreshCo.
A very special thank you to El Pelon and PBR for being foundational sponsors of this event and helping to make our after-party at POP Allston such a bumping party.
We’d also like to give some special shout-outs to Ellen Bechtel for making the AMAZING artwork this year, and for inspiring us with your ocean vision. Also a huge thanks to Boycott Brass for playing at our after-party and serenading us with those amazing 90s jams.

Thank you and with much gratitude –
Your Babes Organizing Team
