GIRLS RIDE OUT Wednesday, April 16, 2014
Time: 6:15 PM. Ride Leader: Kathy Boling
Location: Wells Street Bridge with parking north or south of the bridge. The start location and ride time will change for May through August. The GRO rides have been through many changes but the main purpose is to get girls out on bikes and teach riding skills, group skills and road skills all while having fun on our bikes.

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,   :)

Sorry, the tires sold. They just get dirty too fast anyway.

For Sale / Continental GP4000 tires - SOLD
« on: January 08, 2013, 07:20:56 PM »
I am selling a PAIR of Continental Grand Prix 4000 tires. Only reason I'm selling is I bought a new bike and the yellow doesn't match. Love Conti's though. Best tires around in my book.

One of the few tires that miraculously delivers on all fronts -- the GP 4000 combines speed and amazing handling with impressive puncture resistance and extended tread life. The result is one of the fastest, most durable and best riding tires available.

The Grand Prix 4000 features three fabric plies for a total of 330 TPI, has a Kevlar folding bead, a max inflation pressure of 120 PSI and weighs 205g (700x23).

    Size: 700x23c
    Color: Yellow
    Vectran puncture protection for ultra resistance to cuts and punctures
    Black chili compound for lowest rolling resistance and best grip
    Folding bead
    Weight: 205 grams per tire
    Brand new, never been out of the box.

PRICE $100.


Latest News / Press Conference August 28-10AM
« on: August 25, 2012, 09:33:09 AM »
There has been a change in the date and time for this conference, hope you can attend.

from Dennis Donahue

Due to scheduling conflicts, this event has been changed to:

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Mid-block (probably closer to the southeast corner of Calhoun & Wayne) in front of One Summit Square (110 E. Wayne), there will be a press conference that will announce the introduction to City Council the proposed amendments for the provision of bicycles and vehicles on the streets of Fort Wayne.

Feel free to invite any relevant bike groups/advocates to this event.

Please RSVP to me your availability.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

The City will be introducing an update to city bicycle ordinances to include the new infrastructure added to streets.  Also, they have included a 3-foot passing law and a "dooring" provision.  This is the most comprehensive re-working of bicycle rules in Fort Wayne in decades.  There will be a press conference to kick off the introduction to City Council - which will discuss the ordinance in early September.  I have been asked by city officials to invite as many cycling enthusiasts to the press conference as possible. 

Ride on,
Kathy Boling
