Women's Adventure Cycling Club (WACC)
The Women's Adventure Cycling Club exists to promote exploration outside the city in the woods, on trails, on gravel, off the beaten path, etc. The group is for cis, trans, and gender non-conforming folks to support each other regardless of skill level. These rides will inspire feelings of independence, self-reliance, and a fascination for touring by bicycle.
This group is born out of 718 Cyclery in Brooklyn, and our aim is to connect folks who are interested in riding together in the woods, on trails, on gravel, off the beaten path, etc...or think they might be! Sign up below for our mailing list, or to get registered for a 2017 WACC event.
