Our group mtb rides are designed as informal group rides and we encourage all level riders including beginner - intermediate level mountain bikers to join. Advanced riders are welcome to ride ahead. These rides require a mountain bike, helmet & all the flat fixing essentials (if you don't have the know-how, no worries, our ride leaders are there to help but please provide a tube that will fit your wheel!). Rides will re-group along the trail and generally are a 5 - 10 miles in distance. Pace & trail determined by group ability level. 2017 Rides happen the 2nd/4th Sunday of each month.
These rides are a great place to start for women who may be newer to the sport, want to get used to riding on the road/in a group or who simply want an awesome social ride. From road rides, to Spring & Fall Mountain Bike training series rides and summer morning 'park loop rides' for all types of bikes we try to have something for everyone.
