Austin Bike Chix Beginner Ride

Come join ABCx--Austin Bike Chix as they host rides on Tuesday evenings to get you prepared for biking on the road so you can ride with more confidence and join some of the longer rides that Austin hosts!

This is the first in a series of 3 rides to get riders ready to train & ride the Mamma Jamma in October.

Did you just get a bike? Do you have a bike that you haven’t ridden in years? Does attending other group bike rides scare you? Have lots of questions that need answers? Want to participate in a charity ride, but don’t know where to start? Come ride with us! All types of bikes in a working condition are welcome.

ABCx Bike rides will get you acquainted with your bike in a friendly, non competitive manner. We’ll go for a 6 - 12 mile ride to get those legs moving in the right direction and get your heart pumping and build your confidence! Along the ride you’ll receive tips to help you become a better biker.
Who are the Austin Bike Chix? We are fun females who like to ride bikes and help get others involved in bike riding! Bike riding has empowered us in many aspects and we'd like to pass some of that power on!

Meet at the Pond at Northwest Park--behind the swimming pool, past the tennis courts http://tinyurl.com/NWParkPond

Don't forget 2 bottles of water & your helmet!
