Seneca Falls, NY- In 1896, Susan B. Anthony said of the bicycle, "it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world." On Sunday, October 18th,you can be a part of this tradition and participate in the bike ride "Wheels of and for Change." As part of the Sentiments &Declarations series, this 19-mile long ride will commemorate the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which granted women the right to vote.
The ride will begin at 10:00 am in front of Women's Rights National Historical Park's Visitor Center at 136 Fall Street, Seneca Falls, NY. Liv Cycling Ambassador Suzanne Hartman will lead this non-competitive ride. A biking enthusiast, Ms. Hartman said, "I ride for all day adventure, for fun, for exercise, to connect to nature and to others." The ride will take place rain or shine. Riders should have a bike in good working condition, a helmet, be comfortable riding in a group, have the ability to average 12 mph, and bring food and water, repair tools, and no headphones.
The Sentiments &Declarations series events are co-sponsored by Women's Rights National Historical Park, the National Women's Hall of Fame, and Hobart and William Smith Colleges. We hope you can join us on October 18th.
