Hop on your bike with hundreds of your closest girlfriends in Colorado's only all-female ride. Ride for 28, 65, or 100 miles along mapped-out course paths circling Longmont with rest stops at local food companies, like White Girl's Salsa and Chips, along the way. The Venus de Miles bike series benefits Greenhouse Scholars, an organization that aids well-testing students that don't have the necessary funds to get into a four-year college. Last year the ride raised nearly $175,000 and this year's goal is to reach $250,000. Sun 6:30 a.m.
