SAN FRANCISCO (BRAIN) — A women's cycling clothing brand and a women's art collective are planning a two-week long event at the San Francisco headquarters of the urban cycling brand, Mission Workshop.

The event is called These Girls Are Machines. It begins Thursday and runs through May 28 at Mission Workshop's retail store and headquarters on Valencia Street.

During the event, the women's clothing brand Machines For Freedom will operate a pop-up store inside the Mission Workshop store.

Mission Workshop also will host an art show called Suffer for Triumph, which is presented by the Fast Chance Collective, a group of five women artists. The art will include illustrations, digital art, prints, photography and jewelry related to the theme of women enduring and persisting in cycling and life.

Events will include an opening party on Thursday at 7pm, a group ride on Friday at 10 am and Saturday at 9 am, and a screening of the documentary "Half The Road" on May 28.

The event's sponsors include Rumbleship, Bespoke Cycles and City+County Bicycle Co.
