Almost every summer night, Jeff and I take the kids on a bike ride together! We love to do it right before bedtime so they get some fresh air and wind down from the day. It’s wonderful for Jeff and I as well because we get to discuss the day without the worry of having the TV or our cell phones interrupting us! But that’s not even the best part for me! The best part about summer bike rides is, YET AGAIN, showing my kids the importance of staying active and living your life to the FULLEST!
I was recently introduced to a cycling event only for women called Goldilocks Ride! Goldilocks is a fully supported, non-competitive, women only, cycling event. With multiple locations and route options, there is a ride for everyone! From novice or experienced riders alike, Goldilocks is a fabulous opportunity to spend the day with your girlfriends while enjoying/conquering a gorgeous ride.
Their cause is to help collect hair and money for wigs for women undergoing cancer treatments. Participants can bring their hair donation to the event where they will collect and donate the hair to an organization giving real-hair wigs to women who can’t afford them. They also make a significant donation to the charity they support with proceeds from the event.
They have events in Salt Lake City, UT, Las Vegas, NV, and Boise, ID!!
This is their 4th year in Idaho and the course is as rural and flat as any bike ride can be. It’s a great ride for beginners. They have routes that are 20,40,60,80 and 100 miles long. They even provide a catered lunch along the way or after the ride. AND they also have swanky rest stops, food, drink and potties along the way.
Everything any woman would want in a ride, THEY have it!
Including their own specially designed Goldilocks jersey. It’s extra long, soft and silky and the envy of every woman on the road.
The Boise race will be held on Saturday, July 12th! You can REGISTER HERE!

If you’re making a girls weekend out of it, their official hotel is the Hampton Inn on Alan street in Meridian Idaho! They’re offering a deeply discounted rate for our riders but need to book before July 1 to get the special deal. They offer a free hot breakfast and are close to the start line.
I am going to try to get a group of girls together to do the race AND you should too!! In fact, let’s give away a race ticket right now!!
