after a short hiatus, the Melo Velo is back! this ride is a staple in the Velo Girls calendar and a great introduction to group riding and to Velo Girls.
the Melo Velo is a beginner ride (or a ride for those of you just starting out again). led by experienced cyclists and Team Velo Girls members, we'll help you get started on the road to longer and more challenging rides. all riders are welcome for socializing and support, but this is an easy, beginner, getting-used-to-road-biking ride. you'll learn shifting, group riding (don't worry, we stay way behind each other), the rules of the road, and how to drink from your water bottle while riding -- all in a very friendly and welcoming environment. all types of bikes are welcome (but gears are definitely a plus on the rolling terrain).
meet at Woodside Town Hall in Woodside at 9:00am on Sundays, beginning February 6th. We'll ride north on Canada Road and return -- 15 miles, mostly flat with little rollers. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
