The Broadneck Biker Babes, a group of bike-riding teachers from Broadneck High School, are committed to staying in touch and staying active over the summer.
“We wanted to stay in touch and we wanted to have girl time,” said Ramona Groh, who started the group five years ago with Melanie Emerson and Teresa Love.
Riding the Baltimore & Annapolis Trail gave them a way to stay in touch but also stay active.
At least once during the summer, the group rides 10 miles and then stops for breakfast at Romilo’s.
Over the years the group has grown to include many current, former and retired Broadneck teachers. Usually, about six to eight people join for the bike ride, but up to 14 people meet for breakfast after the race.
With the COVID-19 pandemic causing all public schools to close in March, the Broadneck Biker Babes have been proactive about scheduling multiple rides and catching up with their friends.
Though they have not been teaching in the same building for months, these Bruins will return to Broadneck stronger than ever.
“Broadneck is awesome,” said Groh. “We stick together. It’s a really good community of teachers.”
