Women's Corner - December 2018

Winter Riding
by Robin Sparer, Women's Ride Coordinator

This has been a interesting year of cycling. I paid for 5 local events, 4 were rained and rode one in the rain. I’m sure we are all looking at our annual stats and thinking they were a bit short. But the point is that we were out there doing our best. We have nothing to prove and really the competition is within ourselves.

So what is your plan for the winter? Whatever it is, stay active. Don’t let your hard work go wasted. Rejoin your gym or try out a new one. Take a spin class. Join some on-line cycling groups, go skiing (cross country or downhill), hiking or snowshoeing, just keep moving.

But be prepared. Wear layers (not cotton) and keep your head, head and fingers warm; most of all stay hydrated!! Finally, check out these great sites that support Women for winter riding and other Activities.

Lastly, I am stepping down as the official coordinator. Anyone can post a Women’s Only (WO) ride on the website as you would any other ride. Some of your long time leaders will continue to offer rides and we will post other WO rides and events as they come available. Please Volunteer!!!
