I went to this clinic last year and learned a ton! Also a lot of fun. This year it sounds even better!

Are you contemplating racing this year!?

Looking forward to it!

yes!   And picking up my riding in general.... I put too few miles on the bike in 2012.

Harumph, I'm too slow even to register. Oh well.

Jennifer! Please register for the Waiting list! That way we have your information. If it looks like there are enough interested women we will be having alternate ways to learn. Like group rides or informal practices!  There are already 3 women on the wait list so that is a good sign that there will be other learnign opportunities.

Also check out http://www.meetup.com/Illinois-Women-Cyclists/.  We are doing an indoor training ride this sunday and will surely be talking cycling there!
