Women Only Ride | July 13 6:30PM

WEATHER UPDATE: RIDE IS ON. Our bums may be soggy but the radar looks clear (and the radar is always reliable…right??) Don’t forget to download the amended route if you haven’t already.

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ! In order to accommodate the route for this week (designed by route master Meg Thorburn), we will start the women’s ride at the EAST END LIBRARY instead of Calvary Baptist Church. The ride will end downtown. If you downloaded the ride before 1:30 pm on Wednesday, the route has now been modified to avoid a road closure on Speedvale.

Ladies! If you haven’t joined us for a women’s ride yet, you’re missing out. Come for the cycling, and stay for the socializing and the supportive environment. We will most likely ride as one group but could split into two depending on turnout.

Check back here for a weather decision no later than 5:30 pm. The last time I was the women’s ride leader I cancelled the ride based on bad weather that never materialized. I hope not to repeat that mistake!

This is a new ride for the 2022 season that will run on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month. It is intended to foster a supportive and safe riding culture where women can help women grow in the sport of cycling. The GCC is keen for the women’s ride to grow as more participants and ride leaders become available.

Bringing lights is always a good idea.

Load the route on your bike computer if you have one, here’s how.
