Thumbs up: Women on wheels
United over their concern that woman may be underrepresented at the polls in the 2012 election and mortified over what that might mean for policies emerging from the Indiana Statehouse, the 51% Club is working statewide to get out the vote among female voters. To foster a sense of unity, raise awareness and register voters, the club is hosting a series of free bike rides — easy, moderate, or rigorous — departing at noon Sunday, Oct. 7, from Big Hat Books at 6510 Cornell Ave. in Broad Ripple. All are welcome to join in the ride. Organizers say the rides will commence "shine or rain" and ask prospective riders to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
