Get Women Cycling ‘Strengthen Your Heart’ Indoor Event, 2/21

The Go Red For Women’s Heart Month event sponsored by Get Women Cycling will be held on Sunday, February 21st, 2016 at the Bronx YMCA located at 2 Castle Hill Avenue, 11 AM -12 Noon.











In honor of Heart Month, we are taking our monthly group bike ride indoors to invite those who do not know how to ride a bicycle or who feel uncomfortable riding with traffic on a 30 minutes stationary bike ride,” said Angela Azzolino of GWC.


The cyclists and the YMCA are collaborating to host the indoor event in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Staten Island. “The group will simultaneously put the pedal to the metal inside these YMCA facilities to raise awareness about heart disease, the benefits of bicycling and a healthy lifestyle,” added Ms. Azzolino.


The Go Red For Women’s Heart Month events also will be held at YMCA facilities in  Brooklyn at 1:30-2:30pm and Staten Island at 4:00-5:00pm. Get Women Cycling is teaming up with the YMCA to encourage women who identify as not fit or athletic, lead primarily sedentary lives or who do not yet know how to ride a bike, to ride for health and recreation.


Women who feel unsure riding outdoors or who do not enjoy riding in cold weather are invited to bicycle indoors with GWC’s active members.


GWC organizers hope that shared experiences and a group discussion will encourage participants to consider bicycling as a means to improve health and lifestyle.


Get Women Cycling is a program geared toward elevating and sustaining female bicycle ridership.
