SheBikes - 2016
Want to join the fun of cycling with a fun group of like-minded women who enjoy the beautiful Old Mission Peninsula? The Cherry Capital Cycling Club is sponsoring 6 weekly rides for beginning & intermediate women cyclists from mid-May to the end of June. The goals are to ride various routes on the Peninsula, to ride enjoyably and safely in small groups and to prepare participants for further fun with CCCC rides that are scheduled almost daily throughout the riding season. Club ride leaders will review rules of the road, and other topics like how to fix a flat tire and basic bike maintenance.
The SheBikes organizational meeting will be on Monday, May 9th @ 6:00 PM in the lower level of McLain’s on 8th St.. Bring a snack and/or beverage to share. Rides will start Monday May 16th, and will be posted on the “Calendar” on this website. We meet at the Traverse City Central High School, at the corner of Eastern & Milliken. Roll out starts at 6 p.m., so please show up early to sign in, get your gear ready and break into smaller groups. Any questions about the ride can be directed to Linda Deneen (email: email@example.com) or Bill Danly (email: firstname.lastname@example.org). If you’re not a member of the Cherry Capital Cycling Club, you’re invited to ride with us and check us out!
