First, welcome to the board!
Second, there aren't many lady riders around these parts (Seattle area) that frequent this board. You might want to check out the PNW_Duc group. I haven't ridden with them yet, but I think a couple others from the DML have.
And of course, you're welcome to meet up with us for a ride sometime. We're actually quite tame (watch out for Andy though, he's a wild one!
