Umstead State Park opens at noon on Tuesday, September 18th. Lake Crabtree County Park won’t be open tomorrow.

Ride Like A Girl is the oldest women's only all skills mountain bike ride in the Triangle. Helmets are required but experience isn't! All women are invited to join these rides regardless of skill, speed or fitness.

Meet time: 5:45pm
Ride starts at: 6:00pm
Location: ORC parking lot

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 30 minutes to 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 and expect to ride 1.5 hours. Ride Like a Girl will meet at Lake Crabtree County Park almost every Tuesday night. In 2018, we’ll occasionally post Tuesday night rides at Brumley and Harris Lake County Park too so check the calendar. We are always looking for more ladies to lead rides! Message us if you'd like to be a regular or occasional ride leader.

NOTE: When trails are closed, ride is cancelled.

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. We recommend bringing a water bottle/hydration pack and wearing bike gloves also. Please make sure your bike is in good working order.
