Babes and Bikes have had a long love affair. In the 1890’s, the cheap and easily assessable bicycle provided women with a feasible means for free transportation. Susan B. Anthony once said, "Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel...the picture of free, ... Read More
It was May 3rd 2006, a group of women walked together within the fresh scent of the flowers they were planning to sell at the Texcoco local market.

Zef So Fresh

BY Jules Abraham in Music Stuff |

Back in Feburary a massive music wave hit the world that just hasn’t stopped.

Africa. HI-TEK’s rave-infused beats and ... Read More
