SkirtBike Festival 2017 – Bucharest

SkirtBike Festival 2017 – Bucharest

Let’s talk about a very special event, coming this Sunday. Something that will catch your eye no matter what. It is the SkirtBike 2017 event in Bucharest. A big shout out to our friend Andreea Tutunaru, one of the organizers, who was kind enough to share the event details with us.

Sometimes you might say that a big city is not really suitable for riding a bike; not entirely. SkirtBike’s mission is to the celebrate the independence and empowerment that cycling can provide to all women, encouraging those who don’t ride a bike as well.

Whether you’re a local or traveling to Bucharest this weekend, SkirtBike is a fun, colorful and friendly women bicycle ride, where the skirt or dress is the main outfit. Inspired by the huge wave that rapidly spread across from Copenhagen to New York and Tokyo. The Bucharest event started in 2010 and it’s been going strong ever since.

Once a year it’s time to unplug, disconnect from your usual online lifestyle and go out to meet new people, experience new things, attend a stylish bicycle parade where the skirt and the bicycle are front and center.

Ever since 2012, SkirtBike became a national event and this year, 15 Romanian cities will join the cycling movement: Oradea, Baia Mare, Cluj, Suceava, Arad, Targu Mures, Iasi, Deva, Alba Iulia, Brasov, Bacau, Drobeta-Turnu Severin, Galati, Constanta and of course, Bucharest.

Their mission is to promote cycling from another perspective, as a safe, fun, joyful and stylish way of transportation. Their goal is to encourage the use of a bicycle in everyday life, from going to work and school all the way to shopping and running errands. It’s a great way of promoting this type of transportation as an alternative to motor vehicles.

Need to know:

  • The event will take place this Sunday, May 14th at 10.00 AM at Verde Stop Arena, Barbu Vacarescu Street no.162-164.
  • The SkirtBike Parade will start at 16.00.
  • What’s an event without music? Throughout the event, you can enjoy live music from EYEDROPS and Abasc Hub.
  • Special appearance by Ground Zero Beer, to keep things flowing.
  • …and many more surprises. (hint: fashion presentation, contests, workshops and more).

For more info, be sure to check out their Facebook and official website.

So, clear your schedule and make sure you attend the SkirtBike Festival 2017 this Sunday. Even if you’re not a bike person, there’s a lot to enjoy here, and who knows, maybe you might try cycling for the first time; stranger things have happened. Trust me, it’s worth it.
