Women Cycle the WAVE to end Domestic Violence
Cycle the WAVE (Women Against Violence Everywhere) is a non-competitive, women’s cycling experience created as a venue for women of all ages and fitness levels to experience camaraderie and increase awareness, inspire fitness, instill hope and help support domestic violence programs. On Sunday, September 18, women will be able to ride a variety of lengths to support three different area domestic violence programs. There’s the Little Sister (10mi), Girly Girl (25mi), Middle Sister (42mi), and Burly Girl (62mi). Cycle the WAVE offers scenic rides, girly gift bags with sassy tees, mechanical support, and great food at rest stops along the routes. The start is 6:30am on September 18 at Tibbetts Valley Park – 965 12th Ave. NW – Issaquah, WA.
The event was created by women passionate about cycling, friendship, fitness, and the desire to “brake the cycle” of domestic violence and make a difference in their community. In 2011 Cycle the WAVE broadened its mission to “inspire fitness, increase awareness and instill hope” across Washington State. Net proceeds of the ride will support the services at Eastside Domestic Violence Program (EDVP) in East and North King County, DAWN in Seattle and South King County and New Beginnings in Seattle and North King County, to affect change for domestic violence in our communities, according to the WAVE website.
