Casual Rides for Women. Not interested in fast paced group rides? Join a friendly bunch of women on Sunday mornings who are all about conversation, laughter, and sharing a good meal on a blanket. We will mainly stick to bike paths with detours for creemees, a beach stroll, support lemonade stands, or whatever whim strikes the group. It’s all about camaraderie and two-wheeled exploration.
Rides take place on Sunday (10 a.m. to approximately noon) and include a stop for brunch within the first half hour. Bring a potluck item to share with the group. Ride length varies according to participants and ability. Rain cancels ride.
Our inaugural ride will venture along Burlington’s waterfront path with possible additional miles through neighborhoods. Observe gulls on the sandbars, ferries, and trailside flowers. We’ll have brunch on the beach or in the Forever Young Treehouse at Oakledge Park.
Picnic on the Causeway - Sunday, July 13, 10 a.m.
Ride a few miles of smooth gravel onto the ColchesterCauseway. Enjoy stunning lake views. Picnic at The Cut - if wind is in our favor - or on any of the myriad of marble boulders en route. Observe sailboats, people fishing, stone sculptures, and wildflowers. Ride, smile, repeat.
This is a rollicking good time following a mapped route. Be forewarned: we may get sidetracked by unadvertised sales we discover along the way! Itinerary includes riding through the Intervale to reach Burlington’s North End (paved or dirt road/trail route). We’ll picnic at a park to fortify ourselves for the hunt.
Head north along waterfront path, cross the Winooski River, then follow the Colchester bike path to picnic at sandy Rossetti Park Beach. Feel the sand between your toes. Return loop includes connections through quiet Colchester neighborhoods.
Autumn Colors at Wheeler Park - Sunday, October 5, 10 a.m.
