Join Pennsylvania Randonneurs as we celebrate International Women's Day with a 107K populaire. International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It began in 1911 with the goal to campaign for women’s equality. This event belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. It is not country, group or organization specific. Come and celebrate women’s achievement with a metric century+ bike ride on this important day as we strive to promote gender balance in the world. Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist once stated: "The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights."
The populaire begins at the Joan of Arc statue near the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and ends at the Stone Age in America statue near of the Ellen Phillips Samuel Memorial art park just above Boathouse Row.
The populaire route is a tour of Fairmont Park landmarks, with a loop out to the suburbs, including rural Evansburg State Park and the interesting town of Ambler. You will visit Laurel Hill Cemetary, Strawberry Mansion, and more.
This populaire is open to all RUSA members.
