You don't have to be related to appreciate the special bonds of sisterhood. Every woman has a woman in their life that is privy to our deepest desires, the first to hear good (and bad!) news, someone who knows just when we need to be parked on the couch with a cup of tea, packet of tim tams and the remote control. This Sunday we celebrate sisterhood with a special ride in the southside. Mussels, coffee, sparkling and beach cruise...

The good people at the City of Port Phillip are amongst the most proactive and dedicated bunch we've come across in facilitating new experiences of bike riding. This year they have gone over and above to encourage women through the She Spoke: Southside Women on Wheels series,  You'll learn, laugh, explore, meet new people, see new places and best of all, you won't have to organise any of it yourself...
