450-A Baldwin, Jenison, MI
Ladies if you're looking for a fun group in the area come on out! This is a ride for casual road bike riders so don't expect to hammer out 20 miles at 20 mph! Routes will vary throughout the season.
Average Speed:12-14 mph
Distance: 15-20 miles
Time: Usually takes around 1.5 hours we usually get back around 8pm
Terrain: Roads mostly, some paved bike paths, some hills
Bicycle Type: 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).
What to Bring Checklist:
- headlight and taillight when sunset is 9pm or earlier. (Just in case).
- tires aired
- bike tuned up
- a spare tube "just in case"
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/ (This will be updated soon to the 2014 form).
Please bring this to your first ride/ first ride of the year.
