Is this ride for you? At Liv Vancouver, we want to create opportunities for women to ride more and find a community of other women to ride with. Our Sunday rides are intermediate level, no-drop fitness road rides from 8:00am to 11:00am. Our goal is to train and get stronger, but this is not a race-minded hammerfest. However, riders should be prepared for 3 hours of steady riding at average speeds of ~25-27kph. After all, it’s all about getting out there, challenging yourself on the bike. Plus, we like to be social, and enjoy a delicious coffee and treat at the end! We ask that all riders have at least a basic knowledge of the dynamics of group riding and road cycling.
*We will ride rain or shine so long as we have a minimum of riders signed up, but obviously not if conditions are dangerous (ie. ice, snow, strong winds).*
Stay in the loop: Join our Liv Vancouver Ride Group on Facebook for the latest details on upcoming rides, including routes, and to communicate with each other and connect for unofficial rides.
Bring: All riders should have a road bike with drop bars. We’re also asking bikes to be fitted with fenders (aka “frienders”) – please inquire if you need some installed. Riders are responsible for ensuring that bikes are in good, working condition. Riders must supply their own snacks, water, and a repair kit in the event of a flat tire.
