This is a Beginners ride for Women but will be a bit longer and a bit faster paced than the previous Women's Rides. It will be a no-drop ride, but we will not ride at the pace of the slowest rider. Rather, we will regroup as needed to allow slower riders to catch up.
Our route will take us west on the Rillito Loop Path to the Santa Cruz Loop Path where we will head south to St. Mary's. We will hit the street at St. Mary's and ride east to Davis (only about 0.3 mile). We'll wiggle up to University Ave/3rd st. and stop at the legendary Time Market for a bio-break and fellowship at about mile 17.
After our break we'll continue east on University Ave, wiggle through the University and catch Mountain Ave. at Helen. We'll stay on Mountain Ave, which is a Bike Boulevard with a wonderful bike lane, back up to the Rillito Path and back to our Start at the Windmill Suites.
