Women's Bike Ride in Freeport Maine

The only bad thing about working our Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks bike tour this June  is I can't join the Women's Ride in Freeport, Maine on June 13th. 

Coordinated by the Bicycle Coalition of Maine, this 9th annual event is extremely well-run. There are a variety of bike ride options: 50, 25, 15 and 5. Surely, anyone can find a suitable distance for herself!

So if you're looking for an excuse to bike in Maine, join hundreds of other women in Freeport (home of LL Bean.) If it weren't for Yellowstone, I'd be there. So many places to bike, so little time!

Santa Barbara Tour and Michelle Green Update

Here are the beautiful women of our Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez Valley bike tour, except for Michelle Slusher who must have been taking the picture. They've obviously cleaned up from the day's bike ride and are waiting for dinner.

As for my sister, Michelle (front, far right,) she rode 56 miles that day. Some of the women she was biking with had a slew of flat tires. After fixing all of them, they just flat ran out of time. They took a short ride in our van so they wouldn't be late for dinner. Can't say as I blame them!

Michelle on our Santa Barbara tour

When my sister Michelle started working for WomanTours, she didn't even own a bike. Four tours, 2 flat tires and a couple hundred dollars in clothes later, she's now a bona fide cyclist. She's on our Santa Barbara tour now, enjoying the sunshine and dreading today's 69-mile day. She doesn't know it yet, but she's ready for it - she's been biking to work a couple times a week this spring, up a nasty hill. If she bikes all today's miles, it will be her personal best....

Save $283.50 if you can fill the last space on our Washington DC Bikeways bike tour May 24-29, 2010. We're offering a 15% discount to anyone who can go at this last minute and take the last spot. The money you save can pay for your flight to the tour, or you can drive and leave your car at the start.

We're psyched about our newest tour. It's nearly all on bike paths, quiet, car-free, pastoral. You'll forget you're in a huge urban center. You'll get the chance to bike by the Lincoln Memorial, the Smithsonian and along the Potomac River. Our photographer Annette is going, so you'll be sure to get some beautiful pictures while you're there too.
