Bicycling

Biking Interest Group

The University Women’s Club Biking Group was started about four years ago by a few women who enjoyed bicycling but who were not road riders. We are recreational riders and use the bike paths around Boulder, and also use roads and highways with bike lanes or wide shoulders. Our rides in the past have taken us to Niwot, Hygiene, and Louisville, as well as on all the Boulder bike trails, including the 360. The trails are a combination of crushed gravel and pavement and a hybrid bike is a good choice, but road bikes and mountain bikes also work.

Biking Interest Group

Since it is difficult to be very sociable riding single file, we also like to plan on a coffee stop on our rides so that members can get acquainted and have a chance to visit. We start out the season in the spring with rides of 10-12 miles and gradually work up to about 20-25 miles by the end of the summer. We meet every Thursday morning during the riding season and e-mail notices are sent out each week on Monday evening or Tuesday morning, giving the location and time of that week’s ride.

Biking Interest Group

During the past year, we have become aware that there is a need for a more leisurely riding group that caters to riders who may not have ridden for some time or need to work up to the distance of the regular group. Therefore, starting this spring, we will begin an “Easy Riders” group which will ride mainly on the bike trails in Boulder, with a shorter and slower route. We anticipate that this group will ride on Wednesday mornings for about an hour. So, if you are interested in this group, please mark your calendars now to save Wednesday mornings starting in May.
