(Shown above and below)

On my May 11th, PMTCC organized and hosted its 1st Inaugural Cyclofemme Ride. Three ride routes were offered from 22, 40 and 50 miles riding to either Ben Avon, Sewickley and Ambridge. Cyclofemme, is an international socially-driven grass-roots celebration of women on bikes.  This ride was one of 299 rides registered in 248 cities, 42 states and 25 countries.  The ride was recently mentioned in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette by Larry Walsh.  We are very excited to have been able to organize this ride to celebrate women in cycling.  We thank everyone who came out to ride with us.

Marshall W. Major Taylor (November 26, 1878 – June 21, 1932)
Major Taylor was an American cyclist who won the world one-mile track cycling championship in 1899 after setting numerous world records and overcoming racial discrimination. Taylor was the first African-American athlete to achieve the level of world champion and only the second black man to win a world championship-after Canadian boxer George Dixon.
