Ride of the Month
They say March is “in like a lion and out like a lamb.” It seems that 2017 will not disappoint with 70 degree heat and perhaps a foot of snow. Weather this March in Southwestern Pennsylvania it is going to be a wild one for biking.

Perhaps you have been working out with friends this winter and feel like you want to try getting into Bike Racing in 2017. For 35 years, Race at The Lake has been offering regional cyclist to test their legs each April with a fun car free loop near Akron Ohio. The course is a 1.25 mile circuit around the Munroe Falls Metro Park Lake with rolling hills but no real climbing.
As one of the few regional women’s only race that you can test your skills with your peers and not have to race against fearless 20 somethings overflowing with testosterone after a winter of hibernation. All races stage 10 minutes prior to race start time and are before heading to the start/finish line 5 minutes prior to the start to receive final instructions from officials. In other words, get there early and don’t be late! (It is a full 2 hour drive to Akron)Register Here
