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?

I have recently rediscovered biking and have been riding with friends 2x/week approx 25 Miles each time.

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 gradually increase my distance. I just bought a new bike and retiring my old, heavy dinosaur. I’m hoping this will make a huge difference in my rides. I need some time to acclimate to my new bike.

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 ride weekly with 3-4 friends, currently. This has led me to join RLAG and Go the Distance. I enjoy riding “in numbers” when on the road.

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?

Shifting and hill climbs on my new bike. Also, bike maintenance.

How did you hear about Ride Like A Girl Cycling?

Looked on meetups.
