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.

Sunday, December 2nd: Rancho Cucamonga Ride

Hosted by Ivana, this was about a 50 mile one-way trip from Union Station in LA to Ranch Cucamonga. We departed at 9am and feasted upon a lavish BBQ hosted, also, by Ivana. The train ride back was wonderfully appreciated as temperatures dipped.


- Ice cream in Claremont
- Accident-inducing kisses
- Low 60s and sunny
- Flat-ish terrain

Ivana, could you please post the route so that others that may want to ride the route on their own may do so? The directions from Union Station should suffice.

Big ups to Ivana and husband, Angel, Ryan and Carla, Mike from the Pride of the Foothills, Baby, and Jared!

That was the farthest most of us had ever ridden, including myself. I felt slow, but the pace was good. It was a steady, gradual and constant incline pretty much the whole way. It was fun times. Beautiful weather, low on traffic, lots of laughs and good food at the end.
Here's the basic route: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=1484029
Some parts were a little different so it did end up being 50 miles.
We're planning to do another on in a couple of weeks. We'll keep you posted.

Wow! This ride sounds SO awesome! My friend decided that he needed a little more time for his return trip to Nevada or we would have been there for sure...

Soon...soon...I will make one of these great rides..
