Tuesday Women's Rides a Success

As I mentioned in an earlier post, NEBC has started a weekly ride series for women. The ride is now 4 weeks old, and seems to be a resounding success! Each week, we have between 30 and 40 women who show up to ride - anywhere from beginners who need to learn to paceline, to a fast group riding 26 miles at an average of 19 mph.

HUGE kudos to KM and CW for organizing and putting this ride together, and for all of the work they have done in ensuring its success. Just looking at the progress the women are making, and the smiles when we return to Lexington Center are a testament to the work you are doing!

Last night, Mike made his way around some of the route to snap some photos. Sadly, moving riders are hard to capture, but he did get a couple of shots. And my group figured that we had this all planned and staged, since Mike HAPPENED to be at the top of Liberty St, where I attacked to sprint over the line.... It was actually a complete surprise to me - honest!


Kathy's moving too fast for the camera ;)

Heh, how can you *not* sprint to the top of Liberty? I find that to be impossible. Liberty was made for sprinting. See you tomorrow - I'm still recovering but I'll be there in one form or another/ -Karin
