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.

West Side Meeting time: Alternating TUESDAY NIGHTS at 8:00pm, ride out 8:30pm SHARP.

Tuesday, October 23rd: Pocket Park Ride

This week: As a refuge to all the horrible air quality, we toured some of the pocket parks of LA trying to get some fresh air. We met early-ish at 8pm. We ended the night at local favorite Pure Luck with a pint (or a half) and some delicious vegan grub.

Douche: "Your mom rides GoGA!"
GoGA girl: "You know what?! You're right, my mom DOES ride with GoGA... WHUT?!?!?"

Big thanks to Katie mom for showing us where some awesome hidden parks were. Way to keep up.

Thanks all for a great loop through the valley last week. Riding on smooth empty paths was definitely a treat.

Katie said...

wahoo. so sad i missed last week. but i think my mom is going to join us this evening!!!!

Since we are staying in LA, Michelle and I had the thought to do a public art / architecture appreciation ride, e.g. the La Brea Tar Pits, and other public scultures, monuments, etc. I think we'll have enough LA natives to create a route on the fly. See you there at 8pm - we'll be wrenching before then!

sounds like good times, but i won't be able make it. been sick all weekend and all the wind and ash don't help any :(

signe said...

public art ride sounds great

boldnbrassy: we usually plan each ride during the week/weekend before.. kinda last minute, but it's a weekly ride and generally things work out great.

we could commit to a couple of rides in advance though.. any requests?
