Perfect April Weather for Bike Clinic
Great weather, lots of women cyclists, good food and wine what else could you ask for!!
We had a fantastic turnout for our first bike clinic this last Saturday. Over 30 women came out to learn new riding techniques from our 3 bike experts (Dave Mable, Brian Duffy and Jim White). Dave and company explained the rules and guidelines for double pace lines and learning to ride in an echelon. After explanations the women hit the road around Waterworks park. You could see the improvements after every circuit around the park.
We rode the Great Western trail after the clinic for a short ride before turning our sights to Jasper Winery. 25 women literally overran the winery for samples of wine before picking their favorite wine of choice. We topped the wine off with some excellent pizza from Orlando's.
I, for one, had a great time meeting so many women eager to ride and enjoy company with other women. It should be quite the fun summer!
