What: We’re partnering with the MS Society for our first-ever co-ed happy hour. The topic? Our upcoming clinics (including our first CO-ED IMIC clinic March 17) and why instruction FOR women, BY women, is important. Guys will learn some tips for encouraging women to love cycling as much as they do (without traumatizing them), and women will learn why the Man Hammerfest should be as sacred as Ladies’ Night Out.

When: Wednesday, March 6, 6 p.m.

Where: MS Society, 813 Shades Creek Parkway, Suite 100B, Birmingham, Alabama

Why: We’ll have something for both roadies and mountain-bikers. Jenny Ely from the MS Society will talk about upcoming road riding events. Kim Cross of Magic City Cycle Chix will do a short presentation about mountain-bike clinics, and how they’re designed to build confidence in a non-intimidating environment. If you’re “on the fence” about attending a clinic, don’t miss this event. We won’t pressure you, but you’ll learn enough to make a decision about whether it’s for you.

Details: As usual, we’ll have libations and snacks, courtesy of the MS Society and MC3. If you’d like to bring a little something to share, that is appreciated (but not required) and part of how we roll! Swag Fairy might make an appearance, if she comes out of her burrow and doesn’t see her shadow.

RSVP: Please RSVP here so we can be fully prepared to welcome you!
