    Where are all the girls???

    I don't mind riding with bf (miSSionary) but I would like to ride with some girls out there.
    miSSionary is training for Endurance racing where I am out there for the ride trying to improve my ability.
    So if any of you boys out there know a girl or two looking for a riding partner, give me a buzz. I ride both road and dirt. My ability is better on road but dirt is getting better, I'm not looking for a racer type rider just someone where we both can push eachother and have fun.
    Lastnight miSSionary and I rode GM and I saw a few chicks out there by themselves, I guess next time I'll speak up.

    When you figure it out, do please let the group know. The group and my two dancing bananas are curious.

    All the biker gals I know are too busy working several jobs to keep their biker boys in free time and parts.

    Not that I'm complaining.

    Kirk,
    Come on, every time you post pics there's a chick in one of em?? Your two dancin' bananas probably need a break at this point!! Is this type of discussion why everyone's always saying keep the rubber side down??

    True, I'm actually very content right now. So what if I have to "haul" two tubes and food. A pulse and she knows what a bike is all I need. The fact that she's smarter than me and hot....icing.

    So when you gonna invite me to ride or am I not hard enough for you anymore.

    Altho my wifey doesn't visit this site, I'll have to point her in this thread's direction - she rides, and has a couple female nursing students she road and mtbs with when their schedules coincide.

    jl,
    I'll check with the boss about Thursday. It depends on the schedule for getting the kids shuffled around to soccer, piano, ice skating, etc. and when she decides to ride this week. I'll PM when I find out.
    What does cl ride, so I can keep an eye out for her tonight?

    hardcore women riders

    I've met lots of female riders who ride by themselves or with hardcore guys, because, as they say, "I'm so much stronger than the women I know I have to ride with the guys to get a workout." That may be so, but surely there's a way for all the hardcore women to connect and hammer on each other.

    I think women are even more competitive than men on rides.

    I'll do my best to drop those hints for you. If your wife is interested in riding that would be great!!!
    What is her riding ability??
    Here is my email grlroadie@hotmail.com, she can email me if she prefer. I will be out of town this weekend along with miSSionary for a bike race he is in. But I'm very flexable as to riding schedule.

    Thanks again.

    I pointed her to this thread so she should be sending you an email shortly. She is definitely looking for other girls to ride with (aren't we all).
