Ride Like A Girl Cycling exists to help women discover the joy of bicycling. We invite women of various bicycling abilities in the area of Portland, Oregon to come into a community of girlfriends where we strive to:
• Create a women-friendly, supportive cycling community for beginners, intermediates and “RLAG graduates” to practice their skills and enjoy “Girlfriend Rides.” Ride just for fun or to further develop and strengthen your skills.
• Offer true-beginners a training path to riding skillfully, safely and confidently. First-timers and “Nervous Nellies” are especially welcome.
• Build basic skills to promote good bike handling, safe riding and self-sufficiency through demonstrations, on-ride lessons and training clinics. This 4-part beginner series begins in the spring and continues through the fall.
• Give more experienced cyclists a place to give back by sharing what they have learned, leading bike rides or simply coming alongside junior cyclists to encourage and support them.
