SOS rides safely out of CUAV SAFETY FEST KICK OFF PARTY!!!




Hey ya'll, words from our friend Paulo about this awesome ride tonite, where we'll be biking folks safely home with the SOS ride for queers! This is part of the Community United Against Violence (CUAV) Safetyfest, which celebrates the resistance and safety of queer communities.


What better way to celebrate SAFETY than at SAFEST FEST! SOS ride will be doing our part in creating a safety space for bikers after the CUAV Safety Fest kick off party.

for more information of all the amazing workshops/events/resources that will be happening, visit:
http://www.cuav.org/safetyfest/

...
There will be a bike buddy sign up list. What does this mean you ask? There will be set times 10pm and 11pm for SOS riders to ride with ya'll back to/near your homes. Feeling safe on our bikes, especially at night, is really important to us and many times when we ride in groups we all feel safer.

break down of the rides will be by location:
EAST OAKLAND
NORTH OAKLAND
WEST OAKLAND
LAKE MERRITT/DOWNTOWN AREA

Each ride will have two riders leading/and backing. These routes are going to be a chill experience. We want folks to feel comfortable riding in whatever capacity feels safe to them. These rides (and SOS rides in general) are meant to make sure that folks are safe and all different levels of biking experiences are together.

But if you have any requests or suggestions or needs for the ride, you can contact a direct contact for this specific ride at:
paulochicoflores@gmail.com


Please bring your helmets/lights/extra bike pump if you have one. If you don't have any of these, we are trying our best to see that there will be some on loan or more resources for our next rides. If you already know that you want to ride and don't have these safety accessories, let us know beforehand! We want to try to accommodate all needs.

Hope to see ya'll at Safety Fest (in general!)
