So I signed up for a cycling event! Who wants to do this with me?
Venus de Miles is a women’s-only cycling event that raises money for the Greenhouse Scholars program. The Illinois ride has two distance options: 25 miles & 61 miles. I think I’m going to try for the 61 mile event in order to get more time on the bike. (I recently learned the acronym TITS as something important to improving at cycling: Time In The Saddle)
I signed up today when I saw that there’s an Active.com Schwaggle for this event – only $59 for the event – for 5 more days!
The ride is out of Lake Forest, Illinois. If you want to do this and plan for a meet up or carpool together, please let me know! I’m excited for this and to learn more about this new charity and event to the Chicago area
