The Wednesday Night Women's Road Ride
is the club's most well-attended weekly ride...but we still want to get more of you to join us!
Come to our meet & greet on Wednesday May 9 (one week before the WRR rides start) at the Cass Park Pavilion (next to the Children's Garden) to meet some of the women who lead, organize, and participate in these rides. This will be a social event but also educational! We'll talk about the following topics:
- What to expect from a WRR (where we ride, breaking into groups based on pace/distance, what kind of gear should you have, etc)
- Bicycle Basics (Making sure your bike is ready to ride, bicycle fitting, how to change flat tire, very brief overview of bicycle maintenance and cleaning)
- Group Riding (Communication, Formation, Safety, What to practice on your own)
- General Q&A (Anything you want to ask us!)
We expect the above discussions to last for about one hour. Afterwards, feel free to join us for an easy, social ride around the Waterfront Trail (so bring your bike!)
Women of all levels of experience and fitness are welcome!
We've rented the pavilion so this event will be held regardless of the weather.
Also -- if you're interested in the idea of WRR but aren't available to ride with us on Wednesday evenings...we encourage you to still come to this event and meet other bike-loving women. Lots of us ride together on days other than Wednesdays, so maybe we can find a ride that works for you!
