Some very special upcoming events GGR is VERY excited about!
The last race of our local XC series, http://www.racepedalfest.com/ is coming up on March 8th in Castaic. GGR has had the privilege of having our big, beautiful purple booth at each race to support the women racing and get the word out about GGR.

This is going to be an amazing year! I am so excited with all the rides and events going on to offer this wonderful place for women as an alternative to co-ed riding. If you are new to GGR, we are a supportive, fun, positive group of women to ride with. Come join us on a ride!
On a personal note, as many of you know, I was in a terrible crash in Mammoth August 31st of last year and due to surgery, torn ligaments and broken bones, I have been unable to ride or even walk for most of the time. After almost 7 months, I was finally cleared to start riding flat road. Another 2 months and I should be cleared to start on the trails again. It’s been a very long road. I thank all of you again for your support. I could not have come this far without it!
