BCBC and Bike Doctor Speaker Series – 24 Hours in the Desert with
Location: Bike Doctor Loft
Date: Friday, January 25th
Time: 6:30pm to 8:30pm
She is back in Sask and we have her for an evening presenting on her 24 hours race.
Last October, Meaghan Hackinen smashed the women’s course record at the World 24 Hour Time Trials, racking up 734 kilometers to finish second in the women’s division with a pace just shy of 31 km/hr. In this installment of the Cycling Speaker Series, Meaghan is excited to share insights into training for a 24-hour race, preparing her crew, and the mental challenge of riding endless loops of the California desert with only the moonlight and coyotes for company.
Meaghan is an ultra-endurance cyclist and writer who believes that bikes are the best. Her two-wheeled adventures have taken her from Haida Gwaii to Mexico’s high plateaus, across Canada (west to east) and Europe (north to south); she is the first Canadian woman to complete the Trans Am Bike Race (2017), as well as the first cyclist to Everest Knox Mountain in Kelowna, BC (2018). www.meaghanhackinen.com
Women & Queer Programming
The Bridge City Bicycle Co-op (BCBC) strives to provide equal opportunity to all of
our members. We aim to create a safer place and promote balance in a historically
cismale-dominated field by offering a Women and Queer program on the 1st and 3rd
Sundays of each month for persons who self-identify as woman, trans, two-spirit,
We invite anyone who identifies as woman, trans, two-spirit, and/or non-binary to
participate in our Women and Queer program by dropping in. There is no need to
pre-register. The program will be lead exclusively by volunteers who self-identify as
women, trans, two-spirit, and/or non-binary. Gender will not be policed at this event.
The purpose of our Women and Queer program is to help encourage and empower
those who have been deterred from learning bike maintenance due to past
experiences. The BCBC welcomes these communities to learn bike maintenance in
a supportive and unapologetic environment.
If you do not identify as woman, trans, two-spirit, or non-binary, we ask you
support this important initiative by respecting the space and not entering during
the Women and Queer program. Instead, feel free to drop by during our weekly
scheduled shop hours on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
If you have any questions about this program, please send us a message.
