October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we are spreading the news by hosting the 2nd Pedal In Pink For Breast Cancer Awareness Women's Ride. Ladies let's get some attention for the cause by getting bedecked and bedazzled in pink! Wear the pink jersey or scarf, cape, tutu or wig, and let's get people to think about saving the tatas and lives!
If you are looking for a welcoming group of women who are here to encourage each other while having fun and developing new friendships, then this is the group for you! This ride is for anyone who self identifies as a woman. We invite all women to experience the fun of getting out on your bike with other like-minded women, get in some exercise and good conversation, while enjoying the day with other ladies who share the passion of cycling. This is a group ride for the women who are looking for a positive, fun, and encouraging group. If it's your first group ride, we welcome you and would love to have your join us!

PACE: The listed pace is based on the flats, with no headwind, and at your own pace up hills. We will regroup at the top of hills. Ladies, you don't have to be a fast climber to join in this group, this is not a race! We are here to encourage and empower one another to get stronger. As long as you are comfortable with the posted pace on the flats, don't worry about the rest. We will wait at the top of climbs to give all riders a chance to catch a breath before continuing. When using designated bicycle trails we will observe the posted speed limit.
START LOCATION & PARKING: Ride starts at Trek Redmond. There is free on street parking as well as free parking on weekends at the Redmond Central Connector Parking lot. Please avoid the spaces in the Trek parking lot so they can be used for their customers.

MECHANICALS: Group will stop for flats. Bring tools and knowledge to repair flats, and a plan, i.e. Orca card, a friend or Uber for rescue should you have a serious mechanical failure.
