Hi! My name is Renee, I am 22 and live with my bicycle obsessed boyfriend who has me hooked on bikes. Only problem is, I'm not quite up to his level and want some ladies to ride with in the area to show me the ropes because I don't feel comfortable going alone. I have a steel frame road bike and lots of endurance, but I also have access to my bf's kick-ass mountain bikes and would like to improve at mountain biking, particularly technique and just becoming less afraid! I don't have a car, but can ride just about anywhere in Santa Cruz! Or finding a carpooling buddy to out-of-town locations would be cool too!

Hi Renee -

You're in a good spot. We have quite a few riders in your area. We do Saturday mountain bike rides that are often on the trails of UCSC or Wilder. Keep an eye on the NorCal part of the boards for info on those rides. I live in Monterey, so I'm a little far from you for a road ride, but hopefully you can hook up with some of the Santa Cruz Bellas.

Hope to ride with you soon!
Beth

Hey Renee

Be sure to keep an eye on this thread for our Saturday rides

http://velobellabb.com/forum3/1828.html

they are usually in the Santa Cruz area, but if its rainy we head to Ft Ord to avoid riding trails in the mud.

One of our other Santa Cruzian ride regulars, Dawn, also is car free and rides to the rides from Soquel.

Welcome Renee!  I live in Santa Cruz and am just back from a 3 month overseas trip and not yet back to work.  Needless to say, my fitness level isn't what it used to be and I'm looking for road ride buddies.  Feel free to PM me or email me at susiebarber at yahoo dot com.
