Ride materials.

Join us for International Women's Day! Based heavily on Crista's Over the Hill with Doctor Disc, this route will tour some very lovely low-traffic roads in Frederick County with a mid-route jaunt to Ladiesburg. RBA Emily did quite a bit of research for good spots celebrating Women's History. For whatever reason, Ladiesburg is on a list of notable spots, but unfortunately the PDF of Maryland's Women's Heritage Trail includes no context. What we do know is Ladiesburg, in one census, had a population of seven women and one man. They used to have a post office. But there is still a sign announcing "Ladiesburg."

Either way, this will be a fun ride starting at Gravel and Grind, a coffee shop in Frederick. Across the street is Olde Mother Brewing, which will provide ample opportunity for randonneurs looking to continue to celebrate International Women's Day.

Also, did you know that the first "Women's Day" was organized by the Socialist Party of America in New York on February 28th in 1909? March 8th didn't become a holiday until women gained suffrage during the Russian Provisional Government in 1917. Women's suffrage in the United States happened after the ratification of the 19th amendment in 1920. Maryland and Virginia, the states most covered by our region, had no suffrage prior to the 19th amendment. Maryland did not ratify until 1941 and Virginia did not ratify until 1952, long after the amendment went into effect.
