Ladies Skills & Shred

August 3, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

All too often I hear from women that they are too afraid to go out and ride their mountain bikes for a variety of reasons, or they don’t even want to try riding one. I’d love to change that. This is open to women of all levels who want to learn how to ride a mountain bike. We’ll spend the first part of the session learning and practicing some skills, we’ll “session” some obstacles on the trail, and then we’ll have an open ride session. The more advanced riders can help the newer riders. My hope is that we can learn together in a non-competitive, supportive environment, and support each other as we grow into this amazing sport.

Girls age 12 and up are welcome to come with their moms.

These events are free, and there will be a waiver for everyone to sign. Please show up at least 15 minutes before the start time so we can get started right on time.

You will need:
A helmet, full-fingered gloves, appropriate footwear (flat pedals and shoes or clipped in), eye protection, and a bike in good working condition with both front and rear brake working. We won’t have time to “fix” anything on your bike, so please make sure it’s all running smoothly when you come. Flats can’t be helped, but be prepared with all the things you need to fix a flat should you get one. Make sure you have water – either a bottle on the bike, or a hydration pack. Maybe some snacks.
