W/T/F Bike Brunch + Cycling Clothing Swap

Do you have cycling jerseys piling up in your drawers? Are you thinking about trying out a cycling clothing brand but don’t know how their sizing really fits? Have you been pedaling lots lately and a jersey is too big now? Buy something online and it’s not quite right? Bring it to the clothing swap!

For August, we’ll be having brunch at my house and while we eat we can shop each others’ cycling clothes. A clothing swap has no rules except to give a good item of clothing a second life for free. We’ll set up some racks for jerseys, socks, arm warmers, old (but in good condition) helmets, and anything else cycling related (parts, caps, products) that you feel needs a good home with a fellow rider. If you have brand new or vintage pieces to sell, I can make a separate section for it.

For food, I’ll have most provided, but if you’d like to bring a special dish or a beverage to share, please do. No ride planned for this month, but I encourage carpooling or bike train-ing here. Plenty of safe bike parking at the house.

10:00AM – 2:00PM

The First Brunch Was a Smash!

This morning we just had our first bike brunch in Los Angeles and it went smashingly! We shared stories, food, and laughs at Home in Silver Lake amongst 15 amazing women & femme with whom we also share the roads. We had commuters, a mom (with baby in tow!), bicycle advocates, group ride leaders, bike racers and bike co-op volunteers and it was wonderful to mingle those worlds while finding out we all shared similar fears, gripes, favorites routes and all have a love for biking that brings us happiness in our lives. It’s what made us want to get together and meet. We inspired each other and listened to each other and can’t wait to meet more women & femme at brunches to come. We discussed creating a Facebook Group for Women Bike Brunch LA so find us there soon to join the conversation at brunch.

A happy group if I ever saw one
