    Looking for cycling partners

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I'm retired, ride mostly during the week so I can save weekends for family. Looking for a few cycling partners, other retired women (I'm over 70) who would be interested in 50 to 80 mile rides in mid to south Puget Sound area, but sometimes venturing into the mountains.

    I'm on the opposite end of the country, but your username caught my attention. You sound like an amazing rider.

    Which Surly do you ride?

    I don't know anyone in your area, but if you're ever near DC I can hook you up with some kindred spirits.

    - Gray Trek Madone 4.7 road bike, mystery crack in top tube repaired by Calfee, Bontrager Affinity RXL saddle
    - Red Trek 6000 mountain bike, Bontrager Evoke WSD saddle

    Gone but not forgotten:
    - Silver Trek 2000 road bike
    - Two awesome and worn out Juliana saddles

    we're in Seattle now but both working so your schedule would not work. Here's a ride series that might suit you. I know one of the organizers and she's a hoot!

    Thanks for the idea. Seattle is far away from me, and my rides are generally 50 miles at the very least, usually up to 80 miles a day, which means I ride faster than "under 10 mph". Thanks for the thought. I should have been a bit more explicit, I guess.

    Anyone interested in riding across Washington state late next summer? No details yet...just later in the summer as we're expecting a new grandchild in the spring.

    In my area we have a meetup group called the Raleigh Weekday Outdoor Activity Group for people just like you. They do hiking, kayaking, and cycling. You might check to see if there is a similar meetup group in your area. If not, you could start one!
