The Freewheel Dirt Girls had a lot of adventures, meeting up with old friends and making new ones. Now it’s our turn to invite our friends to come ride our ‘home’ trails with us. A hearty welcome to friends old and new, and friends we haven’t even met yet!
We will be showcasing our awesome trail network to fellow amazing women mountain bikers with beginner, intermediate and advanced guided rides, complete with a feed station. This is a women’s focused event. Mates & dates are welcome to join in the fun so long as they respect our ride as a fun and empowering women’s mountain bike ride.
There’s fun for riders of all skill and comfort levels levels:
- BEGINNER: about 10km of single and doubletrack with less than 100m of climbing.
- INTERMEDIATE: 15-22km mix of single and doubletrack as well as paved road. The climbing will include an on-road climb for a ride-total of approximately 300m climbing.
- ADVANCED: 30km, a mix of road, single and doubletrack as well as more than 400m of challenging-but-doable climbing.
And after the ride, we will host a tailgate party in the parking lot at Freewheel Cycle with refreshments and a BBQ.
All this for $5?! Seems pretty sweet, eh? How about knowing that your $5 is donated to Hamilton Burlington Mountain Biking Association, the stewards of our amazing trail network? As such, tickets are non-refundable.
Not riding, you just want to join in the post ride vibe and feasting? There’s an option for non-riding tickets.
No raindate; Mel guarantees we won’t need it. 😉Buy Tickets
