1st All Women's Ride a Success

July 08, 2019 7:01 PM | Adam Jeffrey (Administrator)

Yesterday 14 badass ladies came together to kick off SoCoVelo’s inaugural women’s-only ride, with Sarah as lead, and Beth, Patti, and Steph as sweepers. The ride was 22 miles long and went from Criterium Bike Shop to Garden of the Gods and back to Criterium via the Greenway Trail. A surprise aid station with bagels, bananas, Larabars, and water, set up by Dan, welcomed the ladies at Balanced Rock, the halfway point and highest point of the ride.  The intent of this ride was to bring women together to ride, no matter their background or skill level! We definitely accomplished this and had riders attend from the entire spectrum of abilities—1 month on the bike to local pro cyclist Charlotte! It just shows that cycling has the ability to bring people together from all walks of life! Overall, the ride was a huge success. There were smiles, words of encouragement, and great conversations all around.  Special thanks to Criterium for supporting this ride and letting us borrow Steph for the morning! - Sarah B
