Chill Rides is making space for folks who have been marginalized by the cycling community as a whole and who have been affected by the patriarchy.

We're a community of Non-Binary, Women, and Queer Folks.

We welcome cyclists of all skill levels and all bikes are welcome.

We ride at "Party Pace" which means we're riding at a slower pace, making lots of pit stops and getting to know one another on the way.

We have a "No Drop Policy" which means nobody gets left behind. We have volunteers at the front, middle, and rear of the group.

​Chill Rides is for folks who want to get out and ride, make new friends, challenge themselves and most importantly HAVE FUN.

Dates and locations vary; check our website or social media for up-to-date information!
