Ride Description: 

Ride to Bike Expo to support the "Cycling Wisdom by Women, for Women" presentation.

This is an easy, flat route mostly along trails with some short road sections.  The route is suitable for all levels of cyclist but the group is encouraged to ride at the slower pace and stay together to support the newer riders.

Once we reach Expo we can park bikes in the secure bike parking and go inside to attend the "Cycling Wisdom by Women, for Women" presentation, 11.15am-12.15pm.

Calling all ladies! This presentation is specifically geared toward answering all things bike riding that might be intimidating to ask at a group ride or bike shop. Topics include:

  • What parts of a bike can be adapted to insure a better/more comfortable fit?
  • Why cycling is more fun with friends and how/where to find other women to ride with.
  • Saddles/Shorts and why we love to hate them and what can we do to not hate them.
  • How to overcome internal fears that may keep you off your bike or intimidated by riding alone.
  • And lot's more!

Please bring every question you have that you've always wanted to ask an experienced female cyclist. This talk will feature four female expert guests from the local bicycle community, including Gina Kavesh.

This ride does not have a return ride to the start location but cue sheets and route maps will be available at the Cascade Ride Leaders booth at Expo.
