  • Ladies' Night Rides Are Back!

    We're bringing back the Ladies' Night Rides! Because nothing is lovelier than sweating out the work week frustrations in the breeze of Prospect Park.

    This is a great chance to meet other women who love to ride bikes!

    What:
    3-5 laps in Prospect Park (10-15 miles). First lap will be warm-up, then we'll pick up the pace & get a nice workout. 

    When: Thursday nights @ 8:30 PM
    (only heavy rain cancels)

    Where: Meet at Grand Army Plaza at the top of Prospect Park.
    (look for Kasia in a black & red Redbeard jersey on the Plaza at the entrance to the Park)

    What to bring: front & rear bike lights, water, and all your energy! 

    Questions? Email me, kasia@redbeardbikes.com, or drop by the shop!

  • Over the river & through the woods

    Confession: yesterday I rode over the George Washington Bridge, and up River Road, for the first time ever! And I didn't want to come home. It's so beautiful out there: trees, birds, the river. And hills. Yes. But for every uphill that burned, there was a soaring downhill: a balm to the legs.

    I've been hearing about the magical River Road for years, but I've been stuck in a loop, commuting, and doing laps in Prospect Park. Yesterday, I finally broke out of my regular orbit -- and so can you!

    Because every Sunday morning, Redbeard Bikes leads a shop ride up the West Side Highway, over the GW Bridge, and up River Road or 9W.

    This is a no-drop ride, which means we'll go at the pace of our slowest rider. We'll set the pace and distance based on who shows up, and we'll check in with each other along the way to see how people are doing.

    Every Sunday. Meet at Redbeard Bikes at 7:15 AM, depart at 7:30 AM.

    Tomorrow on the blog: a Q-and-A about what to wear and what to bring. Stay tuned.

    Questions? Ideas? Email me at kasia@redbeardbikes.com, or send a message on Facebook.
