Team Group Health is leading off the Meet the Team Road Rides this Saturday, September 10th! Do you know of any women interested in racing or interested in checking out Team Group Health?
Team Group Health (TGH) is an all-women team that carries about 65 riders on the roster each year of all sizes, ages, and abilities. TGH has a strong contingent in Road, Track, Mountain, and Cyclocross. We are looking for some women new to racing as well as current cat 123 and cat 4 racers. The team is committed to developing strong, safe riders ready to race in all disciplines and has the experience to share with a strong history of being given the national title “Best Team” by USA Cycling three times and two time WSBA women’s champions. There are a number of racing scholarships available for women new to road racing this year.
Seattle rides will meet at 9:15 at Leschi Park, 201 Lakeside Ave S, Seattle 98122, with the rides departing at 9:30 and proceeding at a social, “no drop” pace around the south end of Lake Washington and returning across I-90 to Leschi.
These are social rides, at a conversational pace, around the south end of Lake Washington. Allow about 2 hours. The ride may stop for 5-10 minutes along the way, but otherwise, be prepared for a continuous ride. These rides happen rain, wind, or sunshine! Bring a functioning road bike (full fenders are appreciated on damp days), helmet, water, some food, weather-appropriate clothing, a little money, and an extra tube in case you flat.
