Women on Wednesdays. This is a relaxing post work ride meant to encourage women to ride bicycles.

We talk about bikes, rides, work-outs and get to know each other in a relaxed setting. We try to do plan something a little different for each ride (instead of always going to a beer joint). This ride takes place (generally) the third Wednesday of every month and rolls out of Spoke Easy Bicycle Shop around 7pm. All skill levels welcome, but come prepared for a little fun and adventure and be ready to become part of a supportive community. Ride info and announcement via our Facebook Group page.
