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, Oct 9th: Venue Ride

Originial Post:


We are thinking of meeting in Pasadena around 7.30 and riding along route 66 to Rancho Cucamunga.

This will be an ~65 mile round trip back to Pasadena.

Ivana, where does the metrolink stop in Pasadena?

This ride is postponed. We would like to have Ivana and company present, and we are cursing ourselves for not exchanging numbers (!), so we are going to do a Venue ride. This way when your friends come into town for shows, you can give them directions. Bring a (mental) list your favorite venues. See you at Scoops (Melrose and Heliotrope) at 8:30pm!

That sounds like an adventure!

Tattiya said...

Hells yes. Anybody want to ride to Pasadena to be there at 7:30? Or we could take all take the Metro together...

What is the terrain like? Never been more that 50 miles on fixed, I'm sure I can do it, but I kind of like feeling the breeze through my hair as I coast down a long hill...

I am interested in getting started riding around LA. Would I be able to get around on my beach cruiser? How fast do you guys tend to ride? Thanks!
