FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I've never been part of a group ride before, can I still join?

This event is intended for women with who have some experience cycling and would like to improve their skills, connect with other women, explore new roads, win prizes and eat great pasta BUT previous experience riding in a group is not required. If you don't feel super comfortable, we recommend you chose the 18kmph group when signing up as these groups will likely be divided into smaller sizes.
