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.

For those that cannot collect their packets in advance, we'll also have them available the morning of the event. Fine Print Registration is non-refundable and non-transferable. Venus de Miles is a rain or shine event; however, in the event of severe weather, your safety will be our number one priority. Rider and spectator parking is only available at Creekside Business Park (1921 Corporate Center Circle OR 1811 Pike Rd., Longmont). We ask our riders to respect the local business of Prospect Park and realize that there will be NO EVENT PARKING at Prospect Park.
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!!
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.
