Late Night Adventure with the Mountain Biking Ladies


Last Friday evening another Ladies’ Ride went on as scheduled, but not exactly as planned. I learned when in Colorado that three of my new friends got lost on the Seven Sisters (The Holyoke Range), Bear Mountain to be exact, and self rescued themselves….making it out of the woods by about 11:15PM!!! Only one brought a cell phone and with a little coaching from friends trying to rescue the lost cyclists (who couldn’t find them), they managed to find their way out on their own. My friend Gail described it as “Rock climbing with a bike on your shoulder.” Everyone was unharmed, a little scared but otherwise OK. Actually, Gail wrote to me that she was “not even sore….it was sort of fun in a sick way!” Sounds like it!!
