Only a few spots left.  This is a great opportunity to learn about what this racing thing is all about and get your questions answered by some gals with major know-how.   Ride whatever you got.  This event is to dip that toe in and see if you'd like to give it a go. There will be snacks provided and some raffle items to win!
