the antidote

I found the antidote to endless emails, long conference calls, short deadlines, and in general, too much sitting.  Even the cloudy cool summer day seemed to disappear.  If any of these sound like problems in your life, you probably need to ride with the Divas.

Thanks to Gloria for leading a fun DRY ride and to Bev, waving way in the back, for sweeping my out-of-shape shape around the Campbell Tract trails

what rain?

Katherine's report from the ride:
I am passing this photo along to you from last night's ride.  Six of us ventured up the Hillside trails and made it to the top.  (Where was everyone else?)  It turned out to be a nice evening for biking and also nice seeing Jo-Ann back to biking form.

too busy (or injured) to blog

An observant Diva who's out of town and yearning for biking in Alaska was visiting the blog and noticed that we're a little behind.  Way behind!  The usual contributors to the blog - now known as the Shoulder Sisters - haven't been riding, so we don't have photos to post unless an able-armed Diva sends them to us.

So here are some highlights of Diva events in the last two months.  Thanks to Lori for the nudge and the photos of Trails Day.  Divas -- send some photos for us to post!


This annual event had all the usual pomp-and-circumstance-and-pagentry.

Kristin, this year's queen, also with wings.

Katherine was crowned Princess, by last year's court, Kari and Lori
Michelle received the Sweetest Ride award for her bike decorations.


For the 2nd year, Yvette Gilles from USGS taught us how to be safe with bears and how to use bear spray.
Linda won the best-dressed category for bear spray application.  In the background, Kristin demonstrates the active stance.


Several Divas helped on the new singletrack trails at Kincaid Park.
