Thank you everyone who came on The Big Girls Ride

24 Jun

I had a great time meeting all of you and riding out to Sellwood.  It was the first ride I’ve lead and I think I’ve learned some things.  When I do it again maybe I’ll make the destination a little funner and try an alternate route for more of a loop than a back and forth.

The ride was even a Mercury pick for Monday:

• The Big Girls Ride
Not everyone is a vegan bike hipster with five percent body fat. If you are a lady who describes herself as “Rubenesque,” this is the ride for you.

So thanks again for coming out, I can’t wait to do it again next year.  (maybe sooner)

Attn: Women of Portland The Big Girls Ride is tomorrow!

22 Jun

Hello everyone I just wanted to through out a reminder that The Big Girls ride is tomorrow at 6:30pm!

THE BIG GIRLS RIDE

6:30pm – 7:30pm

This is a ride for curvy/fat/zaftig/rubenesque women.  Big girls ride bikes too so let’s go for a ride together.  Easy route on the east side of the Willamette River.  Riders of all skill levels encouraged, nobody gets left behind.

Confused, have questions what to give me some suggestions give me a haller!  Otherwise I’ll be seeing you tomorrow!

It’s Pedalpalooza time again!

16 Jun

Hello everyone!  It’s Pedalpalooza time here in Portland and I’ve been so busy out having fun that I forgot to bring it up.  You can go to the Pedalpalooza website to see the 200+ events or grab a current issue of the Portland Mercury for a printed copy.

There are a lot of options for all skill level and I’ll be leading the big girl ride during the last week of the event.

Anyway, I’m off to have more fun.  But Portland get your butt outside and ride and if your reading from anywhere  else maybe you can do some of these kinds or rides where you live.

Summer is on the way!

22 May

The days of cold are coming to an end.  It might be rainy but I can still sleep with the window open at night so I’d say we’re well on our way.  So if you’ve been avoiding it get our on your bike.  Take a ride around the neighborhood, go down by the river and check out the pirate ship docked near the Hawthorne bridge.  Look at the shift calender for some scheduled fun.  Remember pedalpalooza is just around the corner so be ready to have fun by having plenty of fun before hand.

More about the ride.

Looks like I can add the pedalpalooza ride whenever I want.  So ladies what do you think would be better a weekend ride or a weekday ride in the evening.  I would be inclined to make it a weekday evening but It’s not for me it’s for everyone.  Maybe I could do one of each.  Hum,  I’ll chat it up tonight and see but give me some feedback ladies.  Thank you so much for encouraging me.

Oh and should this be women only or co-ed?  I was thinking keeping it all girl would add to the comfort but it seems a little mean to tell the big guys they have to get their own ride.

Just an idea.

I was thinking it could be really fun to have a chubby/fat/curvy girl ride as part of pedalpolooza.  Easy ride share tips tricks etc.  Anyway to anyone who reads this send some feed back my way.  I already proposed it I would just like to know if there is interest for a ride or some sort of workshop.
