Gears Girls Women's Road Cycling Group
Some great rides this week! I'm really impressed how much the pace and general skill level has picked up just in the past month. Kudos to those of you who have been coming out regularly and working hard!
All groups will continue to ride at a pace that is comfortable for the majority of riders. While we have been splitting the Monday, Tuesday and Thursday groups up (due to size), even the slower pace groups (within the Monday and Thursday groups) have been averaging around 24kms/hr and the faster pace groups around 26 or 27kms/hr. Please remember that these rides are meant to challenge you; if you find the pace too slow or two fast don't feel obligated to remain with the group for the remainder of the ride. If, after heading out with the group you would like to ride on your own or with another member, please let one of the ride leaders know you are heading back or riding on your own. We ride a similar route most weeknights so all members should have a good sense of where in Mississauga or Oakville we are.
All rides will proceed as planned this week. Check the blog http://gearsgirls.blogspot.com for weather updates and ride cancellations.
For those of you interested in the Saturday Midweek ladies only ride, the ride organizer - Michelle Payne - has informed me that the cost for the season is $50. Check the GG blog for details as I posted information earlier this week or send me an email and I'll put you in touch with Michelle.
See you put there!
