Take a Group Ride
Sometimes all you need to get going is a push in the right direction. There are plenty of local organizations hosting group rides that can help you gain the confidence to explore a new area of town or tackle your first long distance ride. Women & Bicycles hosts a weekly meetup and posts group rides from their facebook page, and WABA offers a variety of year-round events and classes.
