Women's Corner - October 2018

Women Are Stronger Together!!
by Robin Sparer, Women's Ride Coordinator
September was the wettest month on record but that didn't stop us from riding. During the Weekend of September 8-9 the Leader's of the Women Group and over 400 women came to Cambridge Maryland to ride the 10th annual Wild Goose Chase in support of Blackwater Wildlife Refuge. On the 8th we were treated to a wildlife tour bike ride in the early morning which made us aware of why we were there and Brenda Ruby, Denise Cohen and Deb Reynolds gave a afternoon Workshop while Martine Palmiter, Deborah Turton and Robin Sparer Volunteered in other ways. Our biggest treat was a group picture with Georgena Terry who started the event and was the special honorary guest and received a fit it station in her honor at the Visitor Center at Blackwater. The next day the rains of Gordan came but that did not deter us nor most of the women and off we went with our rain gear and a positive attitude. Not one complaint from our soggy ride . When we returned we were treated to lunch and most of our group were winners of door prizes and raffles.

The last Saturday of September we finally got good weather and Jessica Hirschhorn repeated and lead her weekly ART to Lake Artesema from District Hardware on  Sept 29th

More fun is on the October Calendar. Get your costume ready and join us for the Great Pumpkin ride on October 27, 2018 in Warrenton, Virginia.
