Women's Bicycling Meetup Group

I started a Women's Bicycling Group on Meetup.com to unite all women in Reno and Sparks who like to ride in the city. We ride whatever bike we want and wear whatever makes us feel comfortable. Our pace is determined by the group and we ride in town. I think it is good for our city to see every day women ride together.

Today was the maiden ride and the fall weather could not have been more perfect! We met at Java Jungle in downtown Reno and rode down Arlington Avenue.

I often feel like all I could talk about is bicycling and commuting and bikes and, and, and bike stuff!! Well, that and cats. So it was really nice to meetup and chat with other women who are just as passionate about casual city rides and who like cute bicycling apparel and accessories.
Others in the Meetup group had to work so we rolled out soon after 9AM.

Along the way we talked about anything that came to mind. And we got to know each other better.
I can't help the big smile on my face. Being on my bike and riding with friends in the gorgeous weather we are having has to be one of the best things!!

We rode Arlington Avenue to Plumas Street, cutting over on Urban Road. Plumas has bike lanes south of Plumb Lane to Lakeridge Drive.

We looped back on Lakeside Drive to Mount Rose Street to Holcomb Avenue.

Then we rode on the Truckee River Trail all the way to Greg Street and Sparks Boulevard. It was a long way for my friends who rode from Reno so it was time for them to turn back around.
I rode on the bike/ped path between the north and southbound lanes of Sparks Boulevard.


I had a BLAST and cannot wait until we ride together again!!

That looks rad! I love how the simple act of riding a bicycle can bring people together. Happy riding in 2015!
