These are open to non-TTG members, but will be WOMEN ONLY. There will be A, B, and C groups. Groups will start staggered. A - The A group should be able to ride the route without needing a break (though we will have opportunities to regroup and also refill water, if needed). This group should be confident in most, if not all aspects of pack skills and riding etiquette. B - The B group should be able to complete the full route, but may need more breaks and regroup opportunities (though if anyone decides to turn back early, just let someone know). This group should have a firm grasp on pack skills and etiquette. C - The C group is great for beginners and those who aren't confident in their group riding skills quite yet. Ideally, we would have a leader and a sweeper for this group to ensure that everyone goes as far as they want to make it. The ride will be between 2-4 hours for those who do the whole ride. We will have breakfast afterwards, so if there is anyone interested in eating with us, please feel free to come by! Check your tire pressure and brakes; before each ride. ABC Quick checks. Bring: • Appropriate food and water for about 2 to 3 hours. We can stop to refill along the route. • Bring a spare tube and a way to inflate it.
