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!
