A fantastic morning riding with the ladies.
15 women in all. 15 AWESOME women!
We had two lovely gentleman Dayanand and Richard join us on our ride, supporting their ladies and the other women riding this morning. Thanks for joining us guys!
The plan was to ride 15 km in a loop of 10km + 5km. A comfortable 10 km loop starting from our Jayanagar bike shop, riding around all the gates of Lalbagh then a 2.5 km stretch down the gorgeous tree lined Nanda Road. A relatively flat road, with no crazy inclines. We did have pockets of morning traffic on our second loop, but everyone rode confidently. The debrief before the ride came quite handy, going over the do’s and don’ts of group riding ensured we stayed safe without doing the crazies on the roads! We rode at an average of 18 kmph riding harder the second loop.
Some pictures of the ride (snaps taken very kindly, by Richard). Felt extra special with someone keen to capture this women’s initiative.
I guess the energy of riding together rubbed off each other and we pushed to ride a 20.7 km! The ride ended at the local idli joint – serving the best, softest, fluffiest idli’s and some deadly red and green chutney. In all a perfect morning out riding with other women! Looking forward to more women riding in the Saturday’s to come.
A very Happy Women’s day from BUMSONTHESADDLE to all the Women out there. Come ride with us, we reckon women who ride are AWESOME!
See you all on the 21st of March at 6:15am to ride at 6:30am!
