The Wild Goose Chase

by Robin Sparer, Women's Ride Coordinator


This Month it's time to put all your hard work to use and participate in a few landmark events. You've put the miles in, you've trained all summer. Now it’s time to push yourself and see your hard work pay off.

The Wild Goose Chase is Sept 8th and 9th. The 8th the PPTC Women’s Group and the Rockville Bike Hub will be holding workshops to get you ride ready and on the 9th (ride day) we will meet you before the ride to go over any last-minute questions you may have. There’s also the Club Backroad Century and Antietam pre-ride Sept 15th and 16th.  Jessica is offering her popular Tuesday ride from District Hardware to Lake Artemesia via the Anacostia River Trail on Saturday Sept 29th.

There's still plenty of riding to do and we are heading to the cooler weather so give yourself a little push. You earned it.

Robin Sparer and Georgena Terry Founder of Terry Bikes and the Wild Goose Chase. This is the 10-year anniversary of the rider and PPTC is proud to be a co-sponsor again this year. Friends of the Blackwater will be installing at Fix It station in her honor at the Blackwater Visitor Center this year.


Don't forget our Women Friendly (WF) regional rides/events coming. The PPTC Women's group will have riders at these events to mentor and meet those who are interested.

Our Club is nothing without volunteers! If YOU want to lead a WF or WO ride, or help out in any way, please get in touch with me! We are a club of thousands of members and it's likely a handful (or more) will want to do the ride you want to do - we just need to find each other. With so many members it can feel overwhelming - where do you start? Just reach out and get the ball (or wheel in this case!) rolling. You'll be glad you did and we'll be a better club for it.
