Northern California - Women On Wheels
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.

Just in case any of you are not familiar with the Women on Wheels group, check out a recent article about them by clicking here (http://www.contracostatimes.com/mld/cctimes/news/local/states/california/alameda_county/alameda/16113228.htm)
The group is pretty much designed to help support and educate women on the basics of cycling.
I just thought it was pretty neat.
Then there's WOMBATS (http://www.wombats.org/) in Marin County. I've been considering sending my wife, as she's beginning to enjoy spin class a lot, but lacks the technical skills for MTB riding that I developed growing up and riding in Marin. She's too intimidated to ride trail with me so I think the WOMBATS thing would be really great. I've heard others knock Jacquie Phelan, but she has my deepest respect, no matter how kooky she may be. I wrote about her HERE (http://nollij.blogspot.com/2005/12/jacquie-phelan-is-my-hero.html). Any women here on the forums have any feedback on the WOMBATS rides?

Every year the Fremont Freewheelers holds their Cinderella Training. It runs from mid-January up until the Cinderella Classic metric century in April, put on by the Valley Spokesmen out of Livermore. It's road riding on all types of bikes. Women teaching women.
