GoGA Mission

We strive to create a positive, dynamic, supportive, all-female environment where women are challenged to ride harder and farther. We emphasize a holistic approach towards riding: we want to facilitate your progression towards becoming a confident rider in terms of route, repair, and safety knowledge.


The specifications:

- Ride 20 to 30 miles in 2007, 25 to 35 miles in 2008

- Quick pace (we don't want to be out all night)

- You will feel most comfortable riding a road bike

- Although we always look out for each other, you are responsible for knowing your own limitations. If you are not comfortable with long distance, the mechanics of your bike, or the pace is too quick, speak up!!! We will try to accommodate you if you are willing to push yourself.

Tuesday, August 14: GOGA goes SOLA




GOGA will be heading to South Los Angeles this week. Our ride will swing through some lesser know, absolutely beautiful, "old" LA neighborhoods with Victorian and Craftsmand homes. Hosted by your resident Angeleno, Katie B.

Meet at 8:30 at 4SBB (4th Street Bicycle Boulevard) and La Brea.
Show up on time, we roll at 8:45 sharp. It is a week night after all.

Note on image: Lady Master on Tricycle, 31 Oct 1897. The invention of the bicycle, as well as being a cheaper mode of transport, helped to liberate many women during the nineteenth century. It did, however, create heated discussions over appropriate dress for lady cyclists.
