Ride, Sally Rides (RSR) are a
weekly opportunity for women to get together and spend time in the saddle. We
are not a new bike club. We are riders, racers, students, moms, locals,
visitors, and friends who want to pedal together on Thursday evenings. This is
simply a weekly excuse to branch out of our social networks to experience new
rides and new people in and around Fort Collins. Rides are determined by each
week’s volunteer leader, and range in difficulty and style - from social rides
to fitness rides; road, trail, or dirt. We’ll use the community BAP calendar to
post ride leaders and details at least a week in advance. Let’s get that
calendar filled up! Time to show off your favorite ride!
To lead a ride or to join the
weekly ride notification list, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
