The program provides an inclusive and supportive community for hijabis and their allies and creates a comfortable and accommodating space for them to engage in recreational bike rides, grow their cycling skills, and explore the city.

We recognize that many visibly Muslim women navigate and face cultural and social barriers in order to engage in cycling. The program strives to make it easier for our participants to integrate cycling into their daily lives without having to compromise their individual lifestyles, beliefs, and commitments.
