We are women over 50 and tired of being the only Gals pulling up on bikes at intersections! (No, you don't have to be over 50 to join - just have to want to ride with us -- that's it!)

Join Gals With Gears for fun, healthy and practical cycling in San Francisco and nearby - with women our own age! Surely you've noticed all those white lanes, green zones and bicycles painted on the streets? Come ride with us! Basic riding skills and helmet required.

We will offer advice on riding in the City, and answer any questions you have any aspect of biking, such as selecting a bicycle, adjusting a helmet, riding in a group, using a Muni bus rack, rules of the road, shifting gears, climbing a hill, and whatever else you want to know.

We offer 2 levels of rides:

  • Level A = 10-15 miles, mostly flat.
  • Level B = 15-30 miles, may have some hills (think of Presidio hills, not Mt Tam).

Most routes are a loop, ending where we begin. Some rides are not a loop, so read the description to see.

Not had your bicycle out in a very long while?  Please have it checked over by a bike mechanic to be sure it is safe and reliable. We want you to enjoy the ride and not have maintenance issues along the way.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
