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.

Location: Scoops (712 N. Heliotrope @ Melrose, Los Angeles)

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.

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!
