Greetings! It’s time for the women-only rides to start again this year. We have a few updates/changes:

What does a leader do? Welcome new riders, explain group ride etiquette and give pointers, pick route (15-25 miles), keep group together.
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!
