    Ride Coordinator: Carolyn and Karen

    Hey ladies come join us every Thursday for our neighborhood ladies ride. Our ride leaders Karen & Carolyn bring you a friendly low intensity environment with all the fun of a group ride except this one is just for the girls.

    Suggested by Kathleen Bober: For those of us that suck wind when climbing this is the no drop practice that we need. Everyone can play. We meet at the Mercado San Augustin near the base of the hill. As a warm-up, we ride slowly to where the road around the hill becomes one way traffic. At that point we start our time and ride for 1 hour. We individually keep track of our progress in hive many laps of A mtn we can do in that hour. After the ride we meet back at the Mercado for lunch & social. Let’s bring up our GPA and earn more A’s! Don’t forget you’ll also earn your store discount, as well.
