Wolfsonian Bike Ride and Guided Tour


Saturday, July 13, 10 AM

Join a group ride with members of Magic City Bike Collective, Emerge Miami, and the Women’s Chamber of Commerce of Miami-Dade. Begin your ride at one of the locations downtown on this mapped route. Take a short trip over the Venetian Causeway to The Wolfsonian in the heart of the Miami Beach Art Deco District. Take in some refreshments and a tour of the exhibition Women in Motion: Fitness, Sport, and the Female Figure guided by FIU professors and guest-curators Dr. Laurie Shrage, Department of Philosophy and Women’s Studies Center, and Dr. Dionne Stephens, Department of Psychology. This ride honors the courage and determination of Annie “Londonderry” Kopchovsky, who in 1894 set out to circumnavigate the globe via bicycle to win a $5,000 wager that a woman couldn’t perform such a feat within fifteen months.
