Ride the women's revolution!
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment, the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Hometown Association (ECSHA) had planned a three-day two-night fully supported bike ride this August. Due to concerns about COVID-19, ECSHA has postponed the ride until next August 20-22, 2021. The ride will start in Johnstown - the birthplace of both Elizabeth Cady Stanton and her revolutionary ideas -- to her home in Seneca Falls where she shared those ideas at the world changing 1848 Women’s Rights Convention.
A fully supported bike ride including breakfast, snacks, dinners, two nights of camping, and lots of women’s history!
