Reason(s) for joining/staying: the amazing females who enjoyed biking just as much as me
Best and worst experience on a ride: I’ve been blessed not to have a “bad” experience thus far…best experience would be the ride back from our beachin’ bike ride! Awesome feeling of accomplishment
What have you accomplished/still hope to accomplish as Ovarian Psycos? I am a female that is becoming more bike savvy and hope to become a better biker!
Words of wisdom: never be that person to sit in your own pity and take every experience as a learning one and if you can’t do that, take your emotions out on your bike
Fill in the blank • The best thing about being a MUXER is bleeding for 7 days and not dying! • My favorite form of hydration is agua! • My Ovarian Psyco sisters are my better half♥ • Best way to get rid of cramps is warm tea and some Buddha. • My bike is my motivator!
The first krew starts from Montebello Park around 1:00 PM and rides along the beautiful urban riverpath to met up with with the Southeast LA krew. They meet up on Imperial where the Rio Hondo and LA River meet on the bike path.
The cyclists stop a little over midway to partake in a stretching session and some wholesome snacking! Maryann’s got that reusable canteen! <3
They hustle to make it in about 2 hours.
The roadside is lined with sage bushes that the girls can’t help but pick.
The group engages in some beautification at Long Beach. The group picks up trash along the shore. The majority of trash is Styrofoam which IS NOT RECYCLEABLE!
Other fun items found: a bloody tampon and a condom. EWW. Seriously, people?
So, please help reduce waste and protect the environment by riding your bike & opting for reusable containers such as a kleen kanteen or bobble water bottle, with a build in water filter (starting at 6$ online)!
This holiday season, please keep mother earth in mind and make sure your gifts are eco-friendly. ♥
