Couple pics from my first big ride!

Two weeks ago I did my first big ride - the Shenandoah 500. I was one of maybe 5 or 6 girls amongst 200 guys. Was such a fun time!




My little DR was in the front of the line of bikes with the guys I was there with.


I started to look forward to stream crossings ... this one was shallow but some were super fun deep!


And... my first good wreck when I launched myself out of a stream crossing too fast and did not hit the trail. Instead I landed in the ditch across from the trail, hit a downed tree, and now look where my foot clutch lever ends up ... good thing for my boyfriend, a passerby and a good rock ... they got it straight without breaking it and I rode the rest of the day! :)

Was such a fun time. I want to plan all next year with riding!!

The ride was in the George Washington Forest, Shenandoah Valley of Virginia ... lots of good riding if you ever decide to head East and want to ride!

Glad to join this thread and sending many miles of joyous rides to all of you.


Hi Vroom, vroom, ABQ here! I need more riding time in the dirt, I'm no good on it. Pavement's another matter. I've taken my XT home and back (NE Arizona) a few times and Colorado, too, plus some local rides and using the bike for commuting to work.

I'll be in Santa Fe for a couple days for work Nov. 17-19, maybe we could meet up?

Terri

Wahooooooooo... that picture makes me feel like I need to get a trip Down Under planned much sooner than I originally thought!! I wonder if we could get more ADV gals to plan a trip down there and ride with you wonderful Aussie ladies.

LadyDraco is right, it's hard to "ride" there. Logistics though, right? We could figure out how to do it ... hmmmmm... gotta think about this. Gotta start saving a lot of $$ to start; won't be a cheap trip, then find the time I can get off work ... okay... hmmmm... still thinking. Will get back to you. It's gotta workout somehow!

It's no issue at all. Just depends how hard or soft you wanna be. Mostly it's easy and heaps of fun. Remember our outback has degrees of fiddiculty, and is accessible particularly the fiun roads to get there in the first place.

Here, slobber up ...

we can ride through rain forests ... you own the road!




or just a leisurely ride through the countryside ... no traffic!!




even get out on the dirt outback, nice 'n easy stuff




where you'll feel it's g-d's own country, you and mother nature








lots of nice adv girls








and we like to party too




then take another route home through some hills



stop on route for a drink ... did i mention the roads are all yours?




the locals are very friendly too ...



so, where the bloody hell are ya? come on down!
