The next big thing in bike computers from Garmin has landed at Stedman’s. With lighting-fast processors, high-res screens and longer battery life the Edge 530 and 830 will help you get the most out of every ride.
One of our favorite features of the Edge series has always been navigation guidance. The shop’s Saturday shop rides, Tuesday night Ladies Ride and everything in between can be loaded up for turn-by-turn navigation to ensure you’ll never get lost again.
Most units are in stock and ready to go- calling for availability is recommended as demand has been high.
When: Spring and Summer Tuesdays. Road ride starting at 5:30 pm
Where: Stedman’s Bike Shop, Wakefield Who: Ladies with bikes and helmets.
The Stedman’s Women’s ride was started in 2012 with a small group of South County cyclists, and has in the last six years grown to a large group of women who gather weekly. We want to help women find a fun and welcoming community to ride with and help develop their riding abilities.
The Tuesday night ride is a road ride that starts at 5:30 from Stedman’s shop and heads out towards the Kingston Train Station, which is mile 6. From here, we split into 3 groups based on speed and distance. Three groups with cruising speeds (not average speed!) of 14-16 mph, 16-18 mph, and 18+ mph on flat roads will cover between 20-35 miles depending on the week and group. Our goals include improving riding skills within a group, overall confidence on the bike, specific skills such as handling, drafting, and cornering. We also aim to create a happy and fun ladies cycling community! We require a well-maintained road bike and a helmet and ask that you are comfortable maintaining 15 mph on a flat road when riding alone.
How to get involved:
Each week’s routes will be posted here and on Facebook by Monday.
