Saturday Grecco Ride

Its been at least 2 or more years since I did the Grecco ride. So my husband said - go do it have fun! That's exactly what I did. Now I didn't stay with the fast group the whole time but when they were around I did. I took a couple of short cuts with the sensible group and jumped back in when they caught us. I had a great time. Oh but I need to ride a bit more.

Whats NEW! A weekly women's only group training ride for intermediate to advanced riders. More details to follow. check back for more info! that's all for now got to get the kids bathed and in BED....
