Girls Ride Out is back for the 8th year on Thursday, 11 April at 6PM
This ladies only ride consist of quiet roads lined with tall trees, mild winding rolling hills, some ponds, farms, and very few cars and of course with all the trees we do have some protection from the winds.
The group ride is structured to ride side by side and in two lines (dual pacelines). In Spring the speed will be around 14-16 mph and we will do a 20 mile loop. We will gain in pace and distance as the year goes on. This is an out and back and we do not stop to rest.
What you will need; preferably a skinny tired road bike in perfect working order and with tires fully inflated, (do this at home so you are not so rushed) waterbottle, helmet, clothing for the weather, seat bag with tube, tire levers and inflator AND your ID with whom to call in case of an emergency. This is a must.
We ride when the weather conditions are favorable for a safe group ride. So, to me, that means not raining, winds under 15 mph and for this time of year, temps above 45. To communicate this on a weekly basis, I use the 3RVS Facebook group page and the forum Girls Ride Out section but most importantly, use your judgment for your abilities.
Looking forward to getting out and riding with you,
