Sorellas chimed in with questions and suggestions of their own, making for an interesting interaction and exchange of ideas.
After the instruction, it was time to climb some hills. Splitting into two groups, the riders took off to tackle climbs through the lovely, lush green neighborhoods surrounding Chastain Park. Each rider embraced the challenge, found her rhythm, enjoyed the journey, and grew a bit along the way, adding fitness and finesse to her quiver of riding skills. Together, they averaged 2500 feet of climbing over 25 miles.
The Sorellas convened at the parking lot after the ride, lounging in the shade, snacking, and socializing (SO good to do, after our COVID year), before dispersing around the Metro area.
