Introduction

I love riding ~ and am looking forward to improving by confidence, speed, and riding ability.

EXPERIENCE: how would you describe your bicycling experience over the past year? Getting back after a long absence? Occasional bike paths & easy rides? Urban rides around town? Longer distances in the country? Other?

For the past 6 years I mostly rode tandem. Last June I started riding solo. I recently moved back to metro area from a year in Corvallis. I am looking to build confidence in riding in the greater Metro area and fixing flats when needed

GOALS & INTERESTS: What types of rides are you most interested in? Do you have any big, hairy, audacious cycling goals for this year? How about brave-baby-step goals? We would love to encourage you if you want to share them with us.

I would like to participate in the Cycle Oregon Weekend, Pedal to Petal, and several 1-2 day events. Eventually I want to complete a century ride.

GROUP RIDING: Have you previous experience with Ride Like A Girl? Other cycling groups? biking in a group at all? If not, don't worry, all levels are welcome here.

I have ridden with a group but not skilled at pace line...I prefer some space

LEARNING INTERESTS: If there is one thing you could learn this year to help you feel more confident and self-sufficient on your bike, what would that be?

Basic mechanics and flat tire repair
