We have postponed our May ride until June 3, because of Memorial Day.
Last month’s ride was wicked hot by 10 am, so we thought we would mix it up a bit.
Saturday June 3rd will be a sunset ride at 6:00 pm and pedals up at 6:30 pm. There is nothing more beautiful than the sunset at JD.
We will ask you to arrive early @ 6:00, so we can check your seat height, tire pressure, and answer any questions you may have.
Susanna from the Bike Shop, will be onsite to check your bikes out. We have invited other bike shops to join us as we our group grows.
A group chat so we can go over some basics and talk about your skill levels. We gather by skill and ride as a group ride. Riders will natural break into smaller groups and we will have riders break with you. We will have several riders to riding sweep, so don’t worry if you drop back. We want everyone to have fun, and feel safe. We may break the beginner, the beginner beginners off.
This ride is to encourage all ladies regardless of skill or age to get out there and ride. It is a free event. Please share with all your girlfriends. We encourage everyone just to have fun & enjoy the ride!
A helmet is required. A MTB Bike is required with knobby tires and it is recommended to have front suspension, but not required. If you are unsure if your bike is designed to handle and off-road trails, stop by your local bike shop and ask.
If you show up with the wrong bike, there are areas beside our area where you can ride. You can still join us and maybe you can borrow a bike. We often have extra bikes onsite, send us a message in advance if you need a bike.
For future summer rides, we may have to start earlier if we want to ride in the summer. Pedals up at 8 am. It is still warm & humid in the mornings, but we understand some people may not want to ride in evenings. We will begin discussions on Sugar Sand Sweeties Facebook Page.
These rides are designed to encourage all ladies regardless of skill or age to get out there and ride.
I think it worked since we have had over 125 ladies join us over the last 4 months.
We are thrilled to see that our passion for riding has spread. Nothing can make us smile more than arriving at the trail and seeing several groups of ladies riding together.
We encourage you to use the Sugar Sand Sweeties Facebook page to find friends to ride with. You can post a ride or find a ride. They do not have to be at JD, they can be Dyer, Halpatiokee, Apoxee or anywhere.
We are going to use the Sugar Sand Sweeties Facebook page to start a discussion about options that will help us keep our monthly ladies’ rides going through the summer.
