Ride & Event Calendar

Please read Important Notes and What to Bring at the bottom of the schedule.

Check this calendar often! After all, we're women and it's our perogative to change our minds, right? If you've got questions about a ride or event, email the specific contact for that event or lorri@velogirls.com.

All Velo Girls rides & events are for girls & women only unless they are specifically noted as co-ed.

Sun - Sep 21

  Melo Velo Beginners' Road Ride
This is a ride for beginners. All female riders are welcome for socializing and support, but this is an easy, beginner, getting-used-to-road-biking ride. You'll learn shifting, group riding (don't worry, we stay way behind each other) and how to drink from your water bottle while riding, in a very non-competitive environment. Meet at Woodside Town Hall in Woodside. We'll ride north on Canada Road and return -- 15 miles, mostly flat with little rollers. More details and RSVP at http://www.meetup.com/velogirls/

All women are welcome on this beginner-friendly ride. Mountain bikes or cyclocross bikes recommended. Details and RSVP: http://www.meetup.com/velogirls
