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

Meet time:  5:45pm

Ride starts at: 6:00pm

Directions:  http://www.torc-nc.org/trails/lake-crabtree-county-park/#directions

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.

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.

    The meetup was great. I appreciate the help I get when I'm on the trails. Thankyou Sarwat for the pointers. I want to be just like you when I become an advanced rider! Lol! I had a really great time hanging out with the girls afterwards for dinner. It was good to get to know everyone better. Your all a nice bunch of ladies.
    Sarwat, I forgot to look at the shirts. I think I need a lg or XL. Let me know how I can hook up with you to get one.
    Thanks again all, I had a blast!

    I'm going to be pretty spent after this weekend. I'm planning to show up to help with the beginners but I don't think I can do the intermediate ride.

    Hi Sarwat. I'm Brad. I bought a jersey from you a few weeks ago and I love it. I heard you also have some downhill jerseys. Are there any XL's left?

      I sent you a msg, yes, I have dh jerseys 3/4 sleeve and long sleeve in XL. We'll figure out how to get one to you asap. Thanks for asking!
