So what do you think, let’s start our own club where we can discuss women’s business, we can share pictures and stories of our rides.
Just like the book the red tent, we can share our rides without getting swallowed by the male riders.
Is anyone interested?

Secret women's club eh? I need to figure out how to work all these websites and upload my rides and add rides. I'm a bit dumb when it comes to that stuff.

Well I'll join in as well but couldn't be bothered setting up another thing at this point in time.

I've done 234 kms so far this year. An intensity I will not be able to sustain post the Alpine Classic I suspect. Anyway, I did some hill efforts in Centennial Park this morning and felt terrible each time. No gain without pain I tell myself.

But thanks to Apple and Grasshopper I now know about Strava which is quite alot of fun.

This mornings ride, due to the school holidays I can squeeze in a longer ride, although the 5am start is a killer :roll:

Give me a few days and I'll attempt to post a pic.

Hey there Apple, join the ACF club on Strava!

Setting a goal and then fessing up to it on a forum to a bunch of people that you've never met and may never meet is a great motivator to getting out there and clocking up the k's!

Set one and go for it, adjust it up or down if you need to....last year I set one of 4444 and then got sucked into all the fun/banter/gauntlet throwing of the 6666k club and then spent the rest of the year chasing down a red arrow :wink:

Because of it I have noticed a huge improvement in my riding ability!
