“You’re gonna have abs by Monday” - Lizzy, Mountain View
This month’s ride met at Spokesman’s location in downtown Santa Cruz and everyone got a chance to do some climbing. The beginner groups went up the Emma McCrary Trail — a favorite trail of both new and seasoned riders. Some beginner groups practiced cornering on the trail’s sweeping curves while others continued up U-con Trail to climb some more. The advanced and intermediate group ventured further into the redwoods where they sessioned jumps, drops, and cheered each other on.
Spokesman was the venue for this September’s ride. In addition to accommodating all 105 of us, they provided 17 demo bikes for new riders to use. Much appreciation. Girls Rock riders also got in-store discounts and some decked-out Bloody Marys.
In short, a lot of sweating and climbing was done this weekend that could put a rider on track to having nice abs. And speaking of abs, we’ll be meeting at ABS (Another Bike Shop) in October. Register here. See you there!
