Goldilocks 2010…the “Just Right” Ride
The Goldilocks Ride is an all-women’s ride that just made its debut earlier this year in Herriman, Utah. Dani Lassiter, who was the ride organizer was able to get the ride organized and filled to capacity in its first year. Starting a new ride in your area can be a bit daunting, but with the support and enthusiasm of the community, putting on such an event can be a lot easier. There is a lot of enthusiasm for women-only cycling events from bicycle shops to the participants. Women-only rides often bring out many novice cyclists and women of varying backgrounds of cycling. There is a real comfort level in being with other women.
The video below has our interview with Dani and she gives a brief how-to on putting together such an event and the key points in making it successful. The last 3 minutes of the video have photos from this event that was held on May 8th of this year. With the success of their first year, we look forward to Goldilocks 2011!
One other thing we have noticed is that we women love to ride for a good cause of some kind. The Goldilocks Ride was no exception. Dani and others who helped her organize the ride, worked countless unpaid hours and all proceeds went to buy helmets for children who needed them. Another ride for good so you can have fun, get fit, and make a difference in your community!
