Sex Re-Education

As womxn, it is safe to say many of us were never properly taught Sex Ed in school. And even if we were, it was likely by a very uncomfortable gym/science teacher that didn’t even know his own butt from a clit. We’ve all gotten through life more or less okay when it comes to sex, but who the FUCK is okay with just okay?! We’re all learning how to be a boss in the streets these days but what about in the sheets?

Read my lips: No more uncomfortable trips to the bike shop. In this 2-hour workshop we're partnering with the bad womxn of Sidesaddle Bikes to help you get to know your ride inside and out and, more importantly, how to keep her running smoothly through all the fucked-up seasons of Vancouver.
