Ladies on Spokes

Faith Based Riding Club in Coweta and Fayette County

Some people are in Book Clubs.  Others may have a green thumb and gravitate towards Garden Clubs.   Finding like minded people to share a common interest is an important part of being an active member of your community.  

In Newnan, there is a group of women who have made their shared passions a vital part of their lives.  Ladies on Spokes is not your typical riding club. Formed 11 years, this is a female only group that shares a couple of primary values: strong Christian beliefs and a love of bicycling.  In fact, their corporate Bylaws make both of those traits a core part of their mission statement. With more than 80 members and many others looking to join, they have obviously struck a very powerful chord.

I was honored recently to be invited to come speak to the Ladies at one of their regularly scheduled meetings.  Just like the song, it was a Rainy Night in Georgia, which meant that the meeting was well attended since it was not an evening for riding.  Upon entering the room (I was the only man in attendance), I immediately could tell that this was not a typical Bike club. These ladies had an incredibly strong bond that was palpable.   The meeting began as all their meetings do, with a prayer. After that, it was on to business.

Ladies on Spokes

I enjoy speaking to bike clubs to help them understand ways that they can protect themselves, be safe and be educated about the claims process if they ever need it.   The Ladies on Spokes group, however, was more engaged, attentive and comfortable asking me challenging and meaningful questions than any other group I’ve seen. It was truly impressive.

If you’re looking for a great bunch of people that love to go out on frequent rides around Newnan, Peachtree City, Fayetteville, and all around Coweta and Fayette, please look for the Ladies on Spokes.   They even allow the occasional Male to ride with them. I know that you’ll be impressed with their passion for cycling and their love for each other and the sport.

(If you would like Bruce Hagen to speak to your Bicycle club or group, please send an email to [email protected] to set it up.  Bike Law Georgia serves the entire State, representing injured people from Savannah to Blairsville, from Augusta to Carrolton, and supports bike advocacy and culture everywhere).

3-foot passing close call
Charlie Thomas Jan 11, 2021

It happens all the time: Someone emails me video footage, clearly showing they were biking along when a car buzzes past, coming within inches of a horrible crash — and there’s nothing I can do about it because we don’t have the laws in place to do something to help. Luckily, that might be about […]

When I (Maria of Bike Law Georgia) called Pattie Baker, the first Metro Atlanta Bicycle Mayor, she was trudging through marshland on her bicycle on Alpharetta’s Big Creek Greenway. I pictured her in my mind with her bike, wearing her signature skirts, and mud on her sandals. Always on the go, the newly minted Metro […]

Lauri Boxer-Macomber Nov 03, 2020

Last month after Justice Ginsberg passed away, I went on one of those long solo rides to pedal things out.  I was hoping that time in the saddle would help settle the emotional torrent within me.  On one hand, I was feeling driven, empowered, and more motivated than ever to step things up a notch […]
