"The guild was looking for new ways to fundraise, a way to make a big chunk of money for the organiza- tion. Though not all guild mem- bers were cyclists, I thought, why not merge my two passions to help others?" The Cycle the Wave bike ride was born. "It was amazing to see how domestic violence touches more people than we know," she said. "Raisingawareness is b!g, be- cause often women don t know they are being abused unless people talk about it. "One in every four women is affected," Anderson added. Through the years, the guild has provided the Eastside Do- mestic Violence Program with more than $100,000 in funding, she said. "What they provide is that little bit extra we don't get else- where," she said. The group's 90 members are Members like Taylor and An-, convinced they can do more than derson said they saw their club s raise $23,000 from 200 riders as mission -- to use the power of they did last year. This year, they said they hope to have more women and help empower oth- ers -- in the things the Eastside Domestic Violence Program does every day. For instance, the Lakemont Ladies have helped each other learn how to change their own tires, perform first aid on the road, learn traffic and riding signals, and train women at dif- ferent levels to conquer their fears. "A lot of women didn't grow up doing many physical or ath- letic things," Taylor said. "For them, getting on a bike and rid- ing 3Omiles is an accomplish- ment. "We want to get them comfort- able to conquer their fears," An- derson said. "It is empowering and addictive." To learn more about what the Eastside Domestic Violence Pro- gram does, Anderson and the other ride coordinators arranged for Langdon to speak to them about the organization's shelters, crisis lines and therapy pro- grams. "The money the Rising Star Guild and the Lakemont Ladies will bring in through Cycle the Wave is critical," Langdon said. Especially now, at a time when funding is being cut and we are getting more and more calls and able to take less." Taylor said it is important to raise awareness about domestic violence. than 600 riders participate, but for that, they need community members to register. There are three routes instead of two this year, the 25-mile Girly Girl ride, the 42-mile Mid- dle Sister ride and the 62-mile Burly Girl ride. The 62-mile ride takes cyclists from Bellevue, up Cougar Moun- tain and up Tiger Mountain. Along the way, there will be awareness signs and informa- tion, as well as goody bags from sponsors like REI, the city of Bellevue and Veloce Velo. "Our riders can expect fantas- tic support, girlie surprises," An- derson said. "Great food and a few hills," added member Laura Halter, "and fun." And while men can't ride in Cycle the Wave, they are encour- aged to participate by signing up to make a donation online in honor of someone riding, or as a virtual rider. Women who may not be able to ride can also participate as virtual riders. "We are really proud of what we've done," Taylor said. "We want to make it more fun, raise more money and involve more people." Chantelle Lusebrink: 392-6434, ext. 241, or clusebrink@isspress.com. Comment at www.issaquahpress.com.
