WOMEN-ONLY GROUP RIDES
We are doing some slight re-branding of the weekly women-only rides this year:

MARCH – AUGUST: Road rides take place on Monday and Wednesday evenings starting with daylight savings in the spring. All rides begin at 5:45pm and leave from Geoff’s Bike and Ski (816 S. Gilbert St, Iowa City).

What to expect:
DevelopMental Mondays: Start your week off right with a medium-paced, beginner-friendly, or recovery-based ride that provides an exclusive women-only environment. These rides are designed to improve your confidence riding in a group setting, get you fitter, make you faster, and get you race ready! Rides typically have a leader that will choose the route and be able to give pointers along the way.

Race-Pace Wednesdays: These rides are quick-paced, race-tactic focused, and occasionally have guest speakers to share their sage-like wisdom regarding racing and riding strategy. These rides are FAST and FUN and will help take your riding and/or racing to the next level! The endorphin rush will be guaranteed to leave you smiling!

Brendan Kealey slid into first in the series standings by taking the win in the Men’s A category. Vanessa Curtis held onto her series lead with her win in the Women’s A race. Pasha Kuznetsov also locked in first place in the series thanks to his win in Chamois Time #1 road race combined with his third place win at the crit. Tara Coady and Jamie Isherwood of New Pi are currently tied for first in Women’s B at this point, but Margo Abbott, Robin Hayward, and Shelley Lowe are only 1 point behind them. Last but not least, Sammy Hamed is sitting in first place for the series in our Juniors division, with Khalid Khalid only 2 points behind.

The next installment of the series will be a mountain bike race at Sugar Bottom trails on June 19th. We hope to see you there!
