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.

East Side Meeting time: Alternating TUESDAY NIGHTS at 8:00pm, ride out 8:30pm SHARP.
Location: Scoops (712 N. Heliotrope @ Melrose, Los Angeles)

West Side Meeting time: Alternating TUESDAY NIGHTS at 8:00pm, ride out 8:30pm SHARP.
Location: Bikerowave (1816A Berkeley St @ Nebraska - North of Olympic, Santa Monica)

Tuesday, October 2nd: Burbank

Original post: Hill ride hosted by Dana.

(might want to bring a geared bike for this one..)

Meet at the usual spot: Melrose and Heliotrope at 8.30pm, roll out at 8.45.

Update: Dana was sick and missed her awesome route. We barely touched Burbank, but we did nevertheless. You can find the route here. Thanks to Ivana, Baby (Elizabeth), and Wendy coming out all the way to LA for the ride!

Who's up for a beach ride this week? (What's the coed event?)


Beach ride it is. The co-ed event was (is) to invite people of the male persuasion to meet us down at the beach, but so far it's not advertised as such. Can't wait to ride this week! Same GoGA time, same GoGA place.

Scoops (on Heliotrope Xstreet Melrose)
Meet: 8:30pm
Ride: 8:45pm, no exceptions.
