All-Female Bike Groups

I got excited skimming through 'The Freaked Out' issue of Huck Magazine at all the great features, I wasn't sure where to start. There's articles on skateboarding in remote western China, punk pacifists in Myanmar, and the future of Rwanda. It's a compelling read. Also tossed in there is a piece on the Ovarian Psycos, an all-female biker group in east-LA.

“Ovaries so big we don’t need balls” is the motto of Ovarian Psycos, an all-women troop of cyclists reclaiming the streets of LA. The use of bikes stems from the feeling of being “free of all the bullshit that has us locked into this matrix of consumption, free of obstacles that get in the way of our ability to navigate.”

Ovarian Psycos documentaryThe Ovarian Psycos state on their website their "political views are feminist ideals with indigena understanding and an urban/hood mentality."

And on their website, Huck has a list of 5 other "all-female bike crews," including the Caramel Curves, profiled by Broadly in the video above.

There is an Ovarian Psycos documentary that premiered at SXSW this spring, that will hopefully be out this year.
