Event description

Description

We are embarking on our thrid year leading women's mountain bike rides and we want to celebrate with all of you who have come out before and get even more women out enjoying the amazing trails Tucson has to offer. Here's the plan:

Registration opens at 7:30a Dragoon Brewing

Pre-ride stretching and schmoozing

Break up into groups--more on that below

Depart for rides at Starr Pass at 8:30a sharp--carpool if possible

Return to Dragoon between 11:30 and noon

Back at Dragoon: prizes, games, mini-massages, $1 first beer for all Joy Riders, food truck

We'll break up into groups roughly representing beginner, intermediate and advanced riders.

FOR THE BEGINNERS: We are offering two opitons!

Option 1: A skills clinic led by the Fantastic, Certified Coach, Martha Lemen! If you are very new to mountain biking, take advantage of this opportunity. This clinic is free--Martha donates her time and talent because she wants to share her joy of the sport with you!

Option 2: As beginner a ride as the area allows just East of Tucson Mountain Park proper (Starr Pass). This will include sections of loose rock, narrow trail and all the hazards of desert riding including rocks and cactus. However, the pace will be very gentle and you will be acciompanied by ride leaders who can help make the experience one you will want to repeat.

Intermediate and advanced riders will go shred Starr Pass, with the only difference being that the advanced riders will ride at a faster pace than the intermediate and enter from the park from Genser. Intermediate will take the 36th street enterance. If you don't know what all this means, don't worry! These rides are all guided and we will not get you lost!

As with all our rides, they are free and for women only. But please invite all supporters to join us at Dragoon for post-ride festivities. This ride is appropriate for ages 12 and above but a parent or guardian must accompany a minor on the ride. Bring at least 20oz of water, a mountain bike in good working condition, a tube and a way to inflate it and all your stoke! This is going to be a PAR-TAY!!!!
