Ride Like a Girl is an initiative to get more women/girls into mountain biking and let them experience the joy it can bring. Everyone is welcome to join us on the FIRST Thursday of the month March through August. We generally meet at Mad Dog Cycles in Orem at 5:30 pm, but see postings for more details.

A couple of riding opportunities

So this Thursday Mad Dog Community Ride is going to be at Lambert Park. This is open to all who are interested, but it is a good trail for those who don't enjoy the climbs so much. Standard protocol though--meet at Mad Dog Cycles in Orem at 5:30 pm. Departure time is usually by 5:40 at the very latest. Jessika is one of the ride leaders this week so look for her. It should be a good time.

If you are looking for an all girls ride, there is a ride in Corner Canyon at 5:30 pm also on Thursday. If you have never ridden in Corner Canyon, it might be fun to see how the other half ride. While UT County is primarily old hunting/deer trails, Corner Canyon is all man created. So while there are some steep pitches here and there, it is much more flowy both up and down. There are not quite so many sustained steep climbs. It is a really nice area. They are meeting at Corner Canyon Equestrian Center (maps.google.com) 1266 East 13400 South, Draper, UT 84020-9767.

Just keeping you in the loop.
