Potomac Pedalers Women & Bicycles Picnic Ride - Saturday, July 18 - 8:30 AM * Riley's Lock

Posted by: Mark Alpert
Following on the success of our first Women’s ride in May, we’re hosting another joint ride (& picnic!) with WABA’s Women & Bicycles group.
This ride is welcoming to all levels and paces, with a few route options. For ladies who are comfortable riding on the road, come experience the scenic Ag Reserve in Upper Montgomery County, featuring rolling terrain dotted with orchards and farmlands. Or, for those ladies who prefer a mostly flat ride, another route will have you tooling along the C&O Canal. The Canal route will be an out and back totaling 15-20 miles, while the road ride will have two distance options of approximately 25 and 35 miles.
This is a no drop ride. All routes will accommodate varying abilities and paces.
We'll meet at 8:30 AM to beat the heat! We'll briefly go over introductions, group riding etiquette, and route information. After the ride we’ll have a potluck picnic so plan to stick around post-ride!
Our women's rides are targeted towards women and those that identify as women.
Ride Leaders: Denise Cohen, Robin Sparer, Martine Palmiter, Deborah Turton, Sue Gunter, and Brenda Ruby
