CHANGE---START TIME 5:00PM
This ride is particularly focused on including, uplifting, and encouraging women who are new to group riding. Thus, it is a no drop ride. This means you will not be left behind. We always have a sweep to stay with riders who have a mechanical issue or are struggling to keep up.
We are riding earlier to beat sunset. Nonetheless you are responsible for having a red tail light and a white headlight for your bike on every ride.
If you can't start at 5, consider catching us at the midpoint in Herndon - where the W&OD crosses Van Buren. Just send me a quick note so I know to look for you.
We value every woman who wants to ride with us and work hard to find a place for each rider that works best for her. If we break into different groups, we'll need more ride leaders, so if you're one that wants to go a bit faster, ask us how to become a ride leader for that group.
Rides are not held when the forecast for rain is greater than 50%. Ride cancellations will be posted on Social Media. If you are not comfortable riding on the roads, please contact one of us before you register for the ride.
Here is the route. Note there is a bailout when the ride crosses the trail in Herndon.
We are paper-free, which means you can download the route from RidewithGPS and print it before you come, but we will not have paper cue sheets to distribute at the ride.
If you drive to the ride start, please park as far away from the building as possible. There are other organizations/businesses in that building whose patrons need access. Thank you!
All riders must sign (or have already signed for 2021) a liability waiver. You can do that HERE. The first ride with us is free. We welcome you to join us on subsequent rides as a member. Membership is $25 per year and you can take care of that HERE.
