New ride in the Jenison area! We heard you cried for a Jenison ride! This year Jessica Seitz will be leading rides out of the Jenison area for Ride with the Girls. If you're looking for a fun group in the area come on out! This is also a ride for casual road bike riders so don't expect to hammer out 20 miles at 20 mph.
Locations will vary throughout the season. At this time, this ride only has one group which will average 12-14 mph over 15-20 miles. For this ride, we are asking that you have at least a "flat handlebar" road bike. It's difficult to ride at a 14 mph pace on a "comfort bike or mountain bike." (Comfort bikes and mtn bikes are geared differently from road bikes. They are heavier and mtn bikes typically have smaller wheel sizes which makes it more difficult to keep up with road bikes).
Please make sure...
- your bike is tuned up
- tires are aired up
- you have packed a spare tube "just in case"
- you are wearing your helmet
- you have water
Finally, please go to the "files" section of this website and find our 2013 waiver form or follow this link: http://www.meetup.com/ridewithgirls/files/
Please bring this to your first ride/ first ride of the year.
