Okay, so technically the advanced Ride Like a Girl is supposed to be on Thursday. But I am bailing. Let me give my excuse and then some options though.
My excuse: I got a new bike. It is really, really sweet. But I am terrible at riding it. Really! I switched from grip shift which calls for a simple flick of the wrist to Sram trigger shifters. And before the grip shift, I rode Shimano. The point being I cannot remember which thumb lever goes up and which goes down under pressure. Needless to say, I need to get this down by the weekend's ICUP race. So when the Weekly Race Series announced they were again moving their Wednesday night race to Thursday, I realized that I needed to opt out of Ride Like a Girl so that I can practice in a race format.
Option 1: That being said I know there a few of you, okay more like several of you, are likely going to be doing the Weekly Race Series anyway. And if you have never done one of these, I would highly recommend it. It is a great, laid-back atmosphere to try your legs at racing.
Option 2: Mad Dog Cycles hosts a group ride on Thursdays. This week the Hodnetts--Tim and Jen--are hosting it. So there is still a group ride taking place and you don't have to worry about being the only girl, because Jen will be there. These are really laid back and you will fit in just fine.
There you have it. I will do Ride Like a Girl for sure on June 3rd even if the mid-week race gets bumped again for weather.
See you on the trails.
