Every Wednesday evening, Grab My Wheel and Cycling Spoken Here are hosting our weekly Ladies only, le Tour de Femme training rides. Rides start from the Nature Park in Apex at 6:00pm and go for about 2 hours.
- All riders are expected to bring their own bike (we will not be lending out bikes) and you are required to wear a helmet. No helmet, no ride. We will be riding on open roads and the rides are "Ride at your OWN risk."
- Each rider MUST sign a waiver for the Wednesday Night ride series. You're only required to sign it once for the entire 2016 ride season. You can download and complete a ride waiver to bring with you by Clicking Here. Also, waivers will be available each week at the starting location. You must either print it out and bring it with you or sign one on site.
- For newer riders, and as a great reminder for us older rides, we have put together a list or rider guidelines that we should all adhere to in order for each of us to have a safe and enjoyable ride. Please review the guidelines before joining the ride. You can download and view a set up the guidelines by Clicking Here.
The ride leaders are on the course to provide help and coaching when desired. The leaders will ride at the advertised speeds for the routes (an average speed over the entire route). If the pace is to slow for you, simple let the ride leaders know you are pulling away, refer to your queue sheet and have a great ride!

In the beginner group, there is no such thing as a "too slow" or "too new". The beginner group is a no drop (meaning no one gets left behind) ride that is 15 miles in length. The group is lead by a few Grab My Wheel riders giving us the option to split the group when we have riders at different levels. We will stop and wait at stop signs allowing the group to regather. On this ride, we will teach you the rules of the road, how to ride in a pack, the basics of changing gears and cadence and get you comfortable on a bike. You are not required to have a road bike for this group. Many people come on Hybrids and even Mountain bikes. If you are just getting into cycling then this is the group for you.
