    Default Women's history ride in Alexandria -- Saturday, March 21 at 1:00 p.m.

    On March 21, celebrate Women's History Month by riding to sites associated with women's suffrage and Alexandrian women who served in government.

    Which woman associated with Old Town Alexandria sought the right to vote -- back in the 1600s? Which Alexandrian was a friend of Susan B. Anthony? Which spot in Alexandria was the site of a pivotal court hearing for suffragists arrested for protesting in front of the White House in 1917? Find out on this family-friendly ride organized by BPAC, Alexandria Celebrates Women, and the Alexandria Spokeswomen.

    We'll start at Market Square, 301 King Street, on Saturday, March 21, at 1:00 p.m. The route is about 14 miles, on a mix of trails and neighborhood streets, with a few hills: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/31837986. Details and registration at http://bit.ly/ALXwomenshistory.

    To help ensure everyone's health and safety, the Women's History Ride has been postponed until Saturday, August 15 -- which will be almost exactly 100 years to the day since the 19th Amendment's ratification.

    In the meantime, if you'd like to do a self-guided version of the Women's History Ride, a guide to the route and stops is available at https://alexandriabpac.wordpress.com/2020-rides/. Enjoy this preview of the material that we'll be talking about in more detail on August 15.

    Thanks for your understanding. Stay safe and be well!
