TORC - Ride Like A Girl 2013 - Women's Ride Location CHANGED

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

Meet time:  5:45pm @ Old Reedy Creek Road/across the I-40 overpass to Umstead

Ride starts at: 6:00pm

NOTE: When trails are closed, ride is cancelled.


Ride Like a Girl @ Umstead tonight at 6pm.  Riders should meet at the I-40 overpass 5:45 and be ready to ride at 6:00pm. We will divide up into beginner and intermediate groups. Ride through Umstead starting from Old Reedy Creek Road (near the Black Creek Greenway)

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

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.

      We just cancelled our 6pm ride there due to the severity of approaching storms, otherwise I would have seen you girls.
