Forest Hill Ave & 42nd Street, Richmond, VA
This event repeats every Tuesday! We will work on getting used to our bikes and the trails both in the dark and the light. Helmets are required. Let's get in the woods and have some fun! Boys are welcome too but the women of the WMR will set the pace. There will always be 2 WMR ride leaders--one out front and one to sweep! No rider will be dropped. This ride is geared towards both men and women who have ridden with WMR 5 times or less and those who wish to stay riding in the RLAG format.
***This ride is a mountain bike ride for beginners who already know how to ride their bike. So basically those attending this ride should already know how to shift gears, how to use their brakes and how to ride up and down hills on the road.***
On the 1st and 3rd Tues of every month we will start our weekly ride downtown. Please Park in the Tredegar parking lot under the train trestle for these rides. On the second Tuesday of the month we will ride at POCO. When we ride at POCO since we will be riding in the dark now, please park in the Loop forest trail off of Courthouse.
