May - Sept 30th
Ladies if you're looking for a fun group in the area come on out!
This is a ride for casual road bike riders and the those looking for a faster pace! Routes will vary throughout the season.
Come push your speed with the A Group or chit chat the ride away and see how fast the miles fly past with the B Group. This ride is for road style bicycles only (curly handle bars and skinny tires). Other bikes with wider tires and a heavier frame make it too difficult to keep up.
The pace and distance has increased this year for the B group.
A Group: Average around 17 mph over around 25 miles of roads, hills and occasionally a small stretch of bike path. This group travels in a pace line, drafting each other and taking turns pulling.
B Group: Average 14 mph over around 20 miles of roads, hills and some paved path. This group does not regularly draft using a pace line.
- Head light and tail light (don't have one? Stop in the shop before the ride!)
- Flat kit: tube pump etc
- You! Happy, sad, nervous or glad.
Please NO headphones or music. If you need to take an emergency call or text, tell us and we will stop the group so that you can do this. Bicycling is inherently dangerous and riding in a group is more so. We ask that you are willing to communicate with riders and observe safety rules.
- Deanna, Erin, Jessica, Lisa, Tyla (ride leaders)
Thursday Night Women's Mountain Bike Ride
Location changes weekly. Check the Facebook page.
6:30 roll out.
Starting in April
Join us for our weekly Women's MTB ride! Don't let the thought of a group ride intimidate you. This ride is for all ages and all riding abilities. We ride at a casual pace, with stops to rest and regroup, and chat about trail features. This is a great opportunity to make new riding friends, and learn from other women in a no-pressure environment. No one gets left behind! We ride at the speed of fun! If you love bikes, good friends and yummy snacks, these rides are for you!
Rides are trail condition dependent, please check the event page the day of the ride for updates/ cancellations. Bring your mountain bike, helmet, water, any questions you might have and your smile :) We switch trails every couple of weeks, so please check the event page to see where we will be riding.
