Hopefully you're doing better than I am this season. Hopefully you've been out on your bike - many times - by now.

I've had plenty of good intentions, but between wind, rain and a well-deserved vacation in Aruba (yay me!), my Trek 1000 has yet to have its tires hit the road this spring. I'm planning on changing that as soon as the sun shines again.

Any other ladies who need a bit of motivation should check out the sixth annual Girls & Gears Night hosted by Gorham Bike and Ski on May 18.

The always-entertaining Lori Voornas of Q97.9 will be the host and the evening's proceeds ($12 donation per attendee) will benefit the Women's Cancer Fund of the Maine Cancer Foundation.

Expect a fashion show of women's biking apparel, giveaways, food, wine, massages and great deals on merchandise. There will also be a raffle, but you'll need to be present to win, so block off a good two hours for you and your biking friends.

Register online here before the May 16 deadline and get a free T-shirt when you arrive at the event.
