On each ride when the Pros sprint for the win, the Ladies will also sprint for cash at the end. This is in addition to the Ladies Day Ride (1 January) and the Ladies Intermediate sprints. Prize Value: $500 Plus! Salud!

It's never to late: Be a sponsor.

Parking: Parking is available on streets and in lots near the Hub (see list below), but there is no WBL parking in front of the Hub. It will simply be a matter of learning the new parking locations to make this a smooth transition. Make sure to lock up and don't leave valuables in your car. Local riders, as always, ride your bikes to the start.
