To enrich our physical and mental well-being and promote women’s health, fitness and community through recreational and competitive cycling.


Sorella Forte is open to all female-identified riders who share a passion for riding a bike. To support a more equitable cycling community, this club welcomes riders of all races, ethnicities, sexualities and gender identities. We support cyclists who enjoy the competitiveness of racing and those who like to ride recreationally.

Saturday Morning Ride

This is a recreational pace in the 11-16 average mph range, faster than a recreational cruise, but a conversational pace. Be prepared for riding hills, and flats and to spin consistently for 2-3 hours at a time without stopping. Always eat breakfast before the ride to help sustain your energy level.
  • Leave at 9 a.m., from River City Bicycles (RCB).
  •  Back at RCB usually about 12 p.m., but no promises. This is a no-drop ride. The group stops to fix flats, take bathroom breaks, and re-groups at major turns.
  •  In the case of snow, ice or other severe winter conditions, the ride is canceled.
  • Yes, we ride in the rain.

Advanced Ride

The advanced ride is a faster pace ride in the 16-20 average mph range. This ride is open to members only and  is not a recreational ride. Be prepared to climb between 2,500 and 4,500 feet. Be comfortable riding in a small group of 4-10 riders, pace lining, and drafting. Know how to change a flat tire. We regroup at major turns and sometimes stop for bathroom breaks.
  • Leave at 8:30 a.m., from River City Bicycles.
  • Back at RCB usually before 12 p.m.
  • Yes, we ride in the rain.
