              Ladies, mark your calendars!

                By Sally Pinnell, DCC member

        The 10th annual Ladies Day Ride will be                                  Happy
Wednesday, Sept. 1. We will leave from Xenia Station
at 10 a.m. and ride in a leisurely fashion (a C/D pace) to                    Independence
a restaurant for lunch, then return. We will be riding on
bikeways, and it’s about 18 miles. My goal in offering                            Day!
this ride is to get more women interested in bicycling.
