Magic City Cycle Chix (MC3) is a grass-roots group of like-minded, bike-minded gals who love cycling and live in or near Birmingham, Ala. Founded in January 2011 by a two-wheeled mama who wanted to meet other women on wheels, we started as a simple Facebook group that’s growing at a viral pace. We are roadies, mountain bikers, cruisers, cyclocross racers, and moms towing toddlers in bike trailers up hills that crush some dudes. We are beginners, racers, social riders, and commuters. We ride together for safety, for support, and most of all, for fun.
