International Womens Day 2018 – #IWD2018

International Womens Day 2018 – #IWD2018

Go TANIA!

So once again the International Women’s Day has come around and we’d like to give some kudos to Susie and the GoGIRLs.

Over the last year our award-winning goGIRL crew have been super active with local rides, away rides, races and training workshops. Also since this time last year the club’s female membership has more than doubled! 

So congratulations you amazing ladies – it’s a wonderful thing to see people pushing themselves, increasing their skills and confidence and having fun while doing it. Here is to another year of awesomeness!

What the GoGIRL’s have been saying

Here are some of the things that the ladies are saying over at the GoGIRLs Facebook page.

“So I’ve ditched my husbands bike and bought a new one – no more crashing . I’ve set myself a challenge…to ride Ferny in under an hour.”

“Anyone up for a ride this afternoon … 4pm around parklands or wooroi or somewhere else? I don’t know either very well but keen to try them out.”

“Excellent training session with Geoff Foxx at Parklands this morning. Thank you Bushrangers & Susie Hume for making it so and getting me a bit closer to that ‘I’m so hardcore’ feeling.  Loved it!”

“Fantastic ride, thanks ladies! Signing up asap. Thanks for being so welcoming and for all the tips! See you again soon!”

Note from Susie

Make a note in your diaries ladies – Keep 17 March free for a Mystery Ride. Details will be up soon on our GoGIRLs Facebook page.

I thought the Bushrangers should say a big hello and a “You go Girl” <bobs head and clicks fingers> to all our female riders – the smarterest and better looking of all the genders!

Thanks to the amazing efforts of Susie and the GoGirls there are more ladies in the club than ever and it’s truly great, because to borrow a line from the Jerry McGuire movie – “You complete me” (with “me” meaning the club, not me personally because I’ve already been completed by the lovely Kim – sorry ladies).

Interesting quotes:

“The bicycle is just as good company as most husbands and, when it gets old and shabby, a woman can dispose of it and get a new one without shocking the entire community.”
Ann Strong, Minneapolis Tribune, 1895
