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.

East Side Meeting time: Alternating TUESDAY NIGHTS at 8:00pm, ride out 8:30pm SHARP.
Location: Scoops (712 N. Heliotrope @ Melrose, Los Angeles)

West Side Meeting time: Alternating TUESDAY NIGHTS at 8:00pm, ride out 8:30pm SHARP.
Location: Bikerowave (1816A Berkeley St @ Nebraska - North of Olympic, Santa Monica)

Tuesday, March 11th: Bridges of LA County

IAAL*MAF's 10 bridges of LA ride, plus a couple more where we can find them.

It'll be a shorter ride, ideal for first time GoGA riders to check out the pace, distance, etc. Please note the "new" new meeting time (8:00pm, ride out at 8:30pm SHARP).

The Route

Rider down (but not out): Katie Bennett

Last week on GoGA, (3/4), Katie Bennett suffered a bike injury that's diagnosis has yet to be determined, but nevertheless she's down for a while. This accident lead us to reconsider out "new" starting time - while traffic was not the sole cause, it was a contributor to this unfortunate event. So once, again, we are changing our starting time to meeting at 8:00pm, and leaving at 8:30pm SHARP.

Thank you for bearing with us, and we hope to see you out there.
