The Betty Ride Hosts Colombian National Women's Cycling Team on June 2nd

The Colombian National Women’s Cycling Team is in the United States for a few weeks this Spring. Come ride with these top women road cyclists on the Ten 27 Cycling Club’s Betty Ride on Sunday morning, June 2nd.

Meet at Wheel & Sprocket, 1027 Davis Street, Evanston, ready to ride at 8:00 am for a brisk-paced group ride of approximately 40 to 45 miles. Celebrate the ride and socialize over drinks and snacks at Wheel & Sprocket after the ride is over. Learn what life is like on the international pro circuit and the obstacles these women have overcome in Colombia to have “made it” at this level.

The Ten 27 Betty Ride is an athletic and supportive ride designed specifically for women riders ready for the next level. Learn and practice group riding skills in a nurturing, yet challenging environment. Become comfortable following a wheel and riding in a group. Led by experienced women riders and racers interested in growing women’s cycling. Traffic laws are observed and helmets are required. Route is 40-50 miles through the northern suburbs.

    Thank you all for coming. The ride was well attended and lots of fun in spite of some pretty poor weather (cold drizzle).

      I'm told that two or three of the team speak some English. There will be others on the ride that can translate.

    Sounds like a great event however I am not up at that speed. Have a good time everyone. I am still at 10-14mph.

    • Ifi

      I am at that speed and I am going. The best way to get faster is just to keep riding.

    Is this event open to slower riders? The yahoo board mention 16-19 mph, but I am not at that speed.

    May 25, 2013

    • Chris M.

      The event is open to everyone. We'll have printed route directions so those that would like to ride at a slower pace can finish the ride in their own group.

    It would be great to get a good turnout of women riders for this event, if for no other reason than to show off the depth of women’s cycling in the U.S. (I’m told these riders don’t get much “social support” for their athleticism in Latin American culture.) And this can give our local riders a chance to ride with and get to know racers from other parts of the world.
