End of Year Party October 1, 2009


The 2009 BMA Gurlz Ride season has concluded. Let's get together without our helmets on to spend an evening celebrating a season of fantastic rides and friendship. We'll get to know each other better and reminisce about all the fun we had this year!

Husbands, SOs, BFs, dates and friends are encouraged. The party is at Jenifer and her boyfriend's house; the Kristeniewski Household. The Kristeniewski Household is not childproof, so unless you have a baby on your boob, we ask that you not bring little ones who are crawling, walking, running or otherwise mobile.

The Boulder Mountain Bike Alliance (BMA) will be providing beverages and swag. The Ride Leaders will take care of main dishes, so all you need to do is bring a side dish, salad or dessert and your best storied from this year's rides!

Please come out even if you couldn't make it to one of the rides this year - you'll meet fun women to ride with next year. Feel free to let us know about other women you think might be interested in participating in our Gurlz Only Rides and we'll invite them too!

You should have received an invitation from Socializer if you are on our mailing list. If you would like to be added to the mailing list, please email us at bmagirls.rideleader@gmail.com.

Once you get the invitation, please RSVP as soon as possible. BMA needs a head count soon for the beverages and we wouldn't want to run out of beer!!!

Thanks and hope to see you on the 1st!

South Boulder Trails Recap

Twenty riders came out for our last ride of the season (even some new faces!). We didn't really see the colors of the sun setting that we had hoped for, but it was a beautiful, warm evening.

Thanks for a great season everyone. See you all at the party!

South Boulder Trails Thursday 9/10

Well, all good things eventually come to an end. We’ve had a fabulous time riding with many new faces this year and unfortunately, this Thursday's ride (September 10), is our last ride of the season. It will be an All Levels ride starting at the Flatirons Vista Trail Head south of Boulder. This trail head is located on Hwy 93 just past Hwy 128 on the right hand side of the highway (map). Depending on daylight and how many times we stop to take pictures of the sunset, we will ride up the Prairie Vista Trail to Doudy Draw and over to do a loop on Springbrook, If you have a bike light and/or a headlamp, please bring it with you as it can get dark quickly this time of year. I don’t anticipate staying out past dark, but having light devices just in case, is always a good idea. We may split into more than one group depending on skill and the number of ladies who come out. This ride is suitable for confident beginners. All obstacles can be safely walked. Please use the blog to arrange carpooling if desired.

Dinner and drinks will follow at a location tbd.

Important Info about the Rides:

  1. All riders MUST wear a helmet, bring water, and have a trail-ready bike.
  2. Riders should also carry the usual basics: spare tube(s), a pump, tire levers, a chain tool, and basic allen wrenches.
  3. All riders ride at their own risk, group leaders take no responsibility for rider safety/injury.
  4. Riders must sign a liability waiver once during the season. If this is your first ride of the season, please bring a signed waiver with you or be prepared to complete one at the meeting spot.
  5. Rides launch at 6:00 pm so be at the trail head by 5:45 pm, dressed and ready to roll by 6 pm.
  6. If the weather is questionable (as it has been lately) make sure to check the blog after 3:00 pm on Thursdays for updated info.
  7. For permitting and planning purposes, please post your name in the comment field if you plan to join us. The comment field is also great for planning carpools, etc.

Please don't be shy about coming out - all of us love biking and would like to hang out with girls that are interested in biking.

Looking forward to seeing you Thursday!
