Mission: We believe all women should feel free to ride a bicycle anytime, anywhere, alone or with others. The Women’s Bike Fest facilitates this vision through a one-day festival focusing on women new to cycling or who don’t identify as cyclists. The mission of the festival is to remove barriers and empower women with the camaraderie, and the ways and means, to include cycling in their lives.

Misión: Creemos que todas las mujeres deben sentirse libres de andar en bicicleta en cualquier momento, en cualquier lugar, a solas o acompañadas. El Festival de Kingston de Mujeres Ciclistas facilita este objetivo con un festival de un día centrado en las mujeres principiantes de ciclismo o quienes no se identifican como ciclistas. La misión del festival es derribar las barreras y empoderar a las mujeres a través del compañerismo, y mediante formas y medios para incluir el ciclismo en sus vidas.

BFK is happy to host FREE bike repair at the Repair Cafe again this July 30th, 11am - 2pm with a Fix-a-Flat Workshop from 12:30 - 1:30PM. Other basic bike repair and Information will be available.

Our first bike repair at the Repair Cafe was a huge success! 25 bikes were fixed up totally for free and more had to be turned away. This time we hope to have more mechanics available and will be able to have a Fix-a-Flat workshop so people can learn to do some basic maintenance of their own. 

Signing up is suggested, by not required, with Rose Quinn at or (845) 453-8012. You'll have to sign a waiver, and if you are under 16 you will have to have a guardian sign on your behalf. 

We could use a few more people to help out with general organization and hosting the day of. No mechanical ability required just a friendly attitude. Email Rose at Hope to see you there!
