We will bike Buenos Aires, from downtown to Puerto Madero/Costanera. We will go through the life and story of different women who played a significant role in the conquest and expansion of rights towards gender equality. Through parks, streets and monuments, we will travel to the end of 19th century with the first feminists. Then, with trivia and anecdotes, we will take you to explore the history of the women's movement to these days. We will go through emblematic places and see, through images, how they looked decades ago. We will share material for you to understand better each of the stories. At the end of the tour, we will take a short break and drink mate, our traditional beverage, and you will learn how to prepare it, with the secrets of two professionals.
