Saturday, May 22nd, 12p.m.-2p.m.
O+ Festival and Kingston Women’s Bike Festival are partnering on Tough As A Mother, a family friendly mural ride celebrating images that elevate the strength of mothers and the power of the feminine spirit. The group will meet at the Kingston Library lot for a brief introduction to the ride by Rose Quinn from KWBF and Lindsey Wolkowicz Art Director at O+. From there, the ride will wind its way through Midtown Kingston and head towards its final destination in the Stockade. Along the way, the group will stop at 6 O+ Festival murals, and pass several others, and other notable sites to discuss some of the imagery, artists and history in Kingston that elevates the stories, struggles and impact of women in our community and on our own sense of empowerment, both locally and universally.
This ride is family friendly and all are welcome. During this event we will also be introducing a challenge ride of the same name, “Tough As A Mother,” a 16+ group led by Rose Quinn of Kingston Women’s Bike Fest to meet/train throughout the summer, culminating in a ride up Popletown Road to Shaupeneak Ridge Park during the O+ Festival October 8-10th, 2021.
O+ has long included cycling as a dynamic aspect of our programming and we are excited to participate in this program as another way of supporting all riders in feeling safe and empowered as they access bikes as vehicles for wellness.
