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, January 15th: The Citrus Ride


...it's a long one.

Introduced and hosted by Katie B!

This ride was inspired by my love of citrus and a project called “Fallen Fruit: A mapping of food resources in Los Angeles”. We are in the peak fruiting season for So Cal’s formerly ubiquitous citrus trees; so let’s take advantage and harvest the crop by bike. I will be scouting all week, and encourage you to do the same. Please take note of the address of fruiting trees you notice around town this week. Anything that hangs over public property; sidewalk, alley or street is ours for the taking. And don’t you worry about our impact; we are going to hit a bunch of spots so we won’t leave denuded trees in our wake. Bring your bags for this one!
