We are happy to welcome WIMA Luxemburg and founder Ann Kathrine Kayser Hansen to our sisterhood! Ann Kathrine played a major in part organizing the Luxembourg leg of the Women Rider’s World Relay and is now busy with the Ripple Relay. We look forward to seeing more from Luxembourg!
We love our summers, the evenings are warm and the nights are bright, it is perfect for riding. On the midsummer weekend we had our WRWR Ripple relay kick off and our ambition is to take the Swedish flag from west to east and to north and south. At the moment the flag is on its way north. As well as supporting the aims of the WRWR, our ripple relay supports MJ Piki and our ambition is to fund riders’ training for Tanzanian women. The ripple relay will come to a close at WIMA Sweden’s autumn meeting.
