Rainout, Schmainout

The rain put a damper on Thursday's ride (get it? damper? okay, we'll just pretend that didn't happen).

But we've got a long summer of rides, dirt-covered shins, post-ride beers (that can never arrive soon enough), exploring new trails with old friends and old trails with new friends, and finally learning how to go over the rock by the tree with the root. And of course there's always the riding with more female mountain bikers than most folks thought existed.

Our turnouts this year are incredible and have as many new faces as familiar ones. We break into groups based on skill/endurance so that everyone can choose their pace. To keep the groups small, we're looking for volunteers of all skill levels to lead or sweep the groups. No experience is necessary, and you definitely don't have to be a stellar rider. If you are interested in helping out, email bmagirls.rideleader@gmail.com and let us know if you're interested in leading/sweeping the speedsters, intermediates and/or beginners.

In other news: Get psyched for next Thursday's ride at Heil by watching Follow Me on the big screen at Boulder Theater. BMA's Film Night is happening next Wednesday, April 28th, tickets are 15 bucks, and all proceeds go towards benefiting BMA's "Better Trails for Boulder County" efforts. This is a great chance to get dolled up (you know, like wearing something that doesn't have a chamois) and have a little dirt-free fun. Of course, we may have to put our skills clinic name tags back on, since it might be impossible to recognize each other without dirt on our faces.

This event usually sells out. For more details or to buy tickets, click here.

  1. I'm going to the film! Already bought my tickets! Not wearing a chamois either, although I don't always ride in one anyway!
