Spend some time on two wheels with the gang from Stedman’s & Shaidzon and afterwards, stay for the after-party and enjoy beer and snacks on us.

Tuesday Night is Ladies Night: Weekly Rides All Spring & Summer Long

*

Welcome to the Tuesday Women’s Rides!

womensride

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.
