Sometimes our ovarian cycles make us turn into ovarian psycos. As such, we invite you to ride off the stress and get a workout and connect with other wombyn on the streets of Los Angeles, all while becoming more familiar with the resources in our communities.
We are connecting dots, riding around our neighborhoods, and becoming aware of community agencies and spaces in an effort to solidify our local networks making everything and everyone more accessible for and to each other.
The Ovarian-Psycos were recently profiled on the LA.Streets Blog (see the link below!) and are creating an amazing space and group for female bicyclers with in L.A.’s Eastside. They describe their political views as “feminist ideals with indigena understanding and urban/hood mentality” and have ridden the streets in protest against violence against women (recently in response to the murder of 22-year-old Bree’Anna Guzman) and their marginalization, forming a close-knit, supportive community.
Megally “Maga” Miranda says of becoming a part of a community of women like this for the first time had to say:
“Being around women, learning that we can interact in a way that was not hostile or competitive; it’s been a very new experience,”
