New Bike Girl

Hi All!

I've been wanting to join this forum for a while - I'm a new young-ish female cyclist who is getting into the QOM/100 mile ride lifestyle after a summer of training. Any advice on teams to join or rides to do in the PNW region? Also, if you're interested, check out my story at: Experiment #9: Becoming a Bike Girl | Don't Think Too Much About It

Thanks everyone!!

Welcome aboard Bikeforums, sounds like you are already into cycling pretty much. Best wishes on your Century Ride, that will be quite an accomplishment on your part.
