TORC - Ride Like A Girl 2013 - Women's Only (All Skills) Ride

Women's only all skills mountain bike ride. Helmets are required but experience isn't!

Meet time:  5:45pm

Ride starts at: 6:00pm

NOTE: When trails are closed, ride is cancelled.


Ride Like a Girl @ Lake Crabtree every Tuesday night at 6pm.  Riders should meet at the very last parking lot on the right at 5:45 and be ready to ride at 6:00pm. We will divide up into beginner and intermediate groups.

Our ride coordinators this year are Trina Cook and Sarwat Khattak.

Leaders and sweepers will vary depending on schedules, but will include Trina, Sarwat, Tonya, Beth, Sheri, Torry, Laura, Karen and Chris. If you would like to lead or sweep, please contact Sarwat or Trina.

Meet location:  Boat ramp (not rental) parking area.  Enter the park and drive all the way to the back lot.  Road will circle to the right and then turn left up hill to the parking area.

All women are invited to join these rides regardless of skill, speed or fitness.  Ride will divide up into groups as necessary depending on who attends.

For this ride, beginner truly means beginner.  If you have never been on singletrack, join the fun and ride in a no pressure, no drop group. Beginner riders should expect 1-4 mph rides that will last any where between .5-1.5 hours depending on the group.  Distance will be 1-4 miles.

Intermediate and above riders should plan their rides according to the ride leader and group.

Trail description:  Trails are easy to moderate.  Smooth flowy trails with slight up hill and down hill grades.  All features have ride-arounds.  You MUST wear a helmet.  Bring plenty of water.

    I have a bike, but can't risk an injury any time soon. I'd like to sell it but have no idea what's a fair price for it. Can any Girl bikers tell me what a riden once mt. bike is worth?

    Looks like Crabtree is still closed. Any chance this meetup could get cancelled? I was really looking forward to it.
    If we can't ride Crabtree, I'm thinking of riding Umstead if anyone wants to join me.

    MIGHT come out if I can, not sure. Don't wait for me though, since traffic is horrific from my house to Crabtree that time of day during the week. :-(
