Ok Ladies: Less than a week to go to Ladies Nite at the Hollywood Bike Gallery. Monday Nov 6th.

Shopping with a 20% discount will be from 6-7pm. We will have wine, and food. We will meet at 7 and discuss women's events for 2007, and have a flat changing clinic. For everyone who brings their front tire with the tools to change a flat (tire levers) and actually is able to change their flat (we will help) they will win a free tube. We will also have some great door prizes and gift give away. You do need to be present to win. So come on down, feel free to invite your friends, but this evening is for women only.

Let's have a fun evening as we welcome fall.
It would also help if you would RSVP [danabarnes@bikegallery.com] if you are coming so I can make sure we have enough wine and food.

Great to see some of you at the Bike Gallery Ladies' Night. After riding in the beautiful rain I was happy to buy some waterproof socks and windproof gloves.

It also sounds like Dana has some incredible rides and events planned for us in 2007. I can't wait.

And don't forget the Bike Gallery's fashion show on December 11th. I am sure you can check out their website for more information.

Be safe out there. Cheers.
