What we're about

This is a group for women who want to be fit again. If you are out of shape and want to get back in shape this is a great group for you. The biking level will moderate. Most rides will be short to medium in length along the beautiful Bear Creek Park paved trails and also other trails. Some, later on might be long - like riding from Bear Creek to Downtown Denver for lunch. We can also do walks. I would like to have each person who joins the group be able to lead some of the biking and walk meet ups. This way we will have a variety of places to go and things to do. Our activities can be at other locations bedsides Bear Creek Park. So if you have a favorite place to walk or bike (for example Clement Park, Cherry Creek Lake or Trail, High Line Canal, etc.) that would be great. Most meet ups will be on the week days (Mon thru Fri). Most rides will be on paved trails and you can use your mountain bike or road bike. Let's have fun!!!

There is a $5.00 member fee. You can try the group out for a month and then you need to decide if you want to be in it and pay the fee. The fee goes to the cost of the site. I have paid for the site myself for the last three years. Shortly they will raise it to $190 a year.

Venus De Miles Ride

Needs a location

Hello Ladies, Several members have shown interest in the Venice de Miles Women's Bike Ride. I thought I would put some of the info I found on line. There is more info you can find by going to VenusdeMiles.com and clicking on Colorado. I have never done this ride (and not positive if I'm doing it this year) , but I know several members have done it previously. If those member would like to add any input, would like to post some practice rides (I guess also, any ride could be a practice ride for this race) or if you have any questions please add to this meetup conversation. Please check when your time starts and how long the event lasts will depend on the route you choose and how long it will take you. Please let us know, if you think you might do this ride what ride route (32, 64, or 100 miles) you might be interested in. Might be nice to have the groups in different routes meet together for that day and at least start off together. Please feel free to add anything that would be helpful on this meetup and please ask any questions!!!! Hope this info helps.

~2019 BIKING CHRONICLES~

At your computer

This is for members to ask, get, or give info on ANYTHING to do with biking and more. Some ideas would be to ask who is available for a ride, who has a bike to sale or buy, what is a conditional of a trail, how do you fix something on your bike, anything on bike equipment, who has done or wants to do a certain bike event, who wants to go to a movie, so anything at all is fine!!

Membership Fees will be $5.00

Hi Ladies, I have not ever charged membership fees, but now Meetup is raising the price shortly to $90. for 6 months. So that would be $180 per year. I have been paying $140 for the last three years on my own (this includes a biking group I had before this one for a year). Thanks so much for being part of this biking meetup group and I hope to see you soon at some rides!! If you have any questions or come up with any problems with the fee process, let me know. This process is new to me also so I will try to answer any of your questions. Thanks!! To participate in the dues it looks like, from what I can see on other meetups, that there is a box on the left column and it says "Member Dues". Then there might be a "detail" tab to click on. You can pay by card or possible pay pal or you can let me know you want to sent it by regular mail and I will send you my address. Let me know if this information I gave you works or does not work. Denise said she received a link to a payment site in her email and that it was very easy. Again, let me know if you are having any questions on how to pay the fee. Thanks Vicky E.
