The Medicine Chest Dirt Girls rides are group rides for any cyclist who is born as or who identifies as a woman.
For summer 2017 we are offering Dirt Girl rides on Tuesday evenings at 7pm. Dirt Girl rides are meant to be fun and supportive. They are a great way to meet other riders and learn local trails.
Every week we ride a new trail (or trails). At the beginning of the season, the participants are split into a “faster” group for riders with a fair amount of experience and technical skills, and a “slower” group for beginner-level riders who would prefer a more leisurely pace. Switching between groups can happen week to week depending on who is leading and how you as a rider are feeling on any particular day. Depending on numbers and skill levels, sometimes we even have 3 groups!
As the season goes on, the groups tend to merge and evolve, especially when we start riding more advanced trails towards the end of the summer.
If you enjoy riding in a group and know a trail or two in Whitehorse, we’re always looking for leaders. Email us or respond to our recruitment calls on the ‘CMBC Yukon’ Facebook page if you’re interested in being awesome by leading a DG ride.
Check the event calendar and the ‘CMBC Yukon’ facebook page for ride details including where to meet (each week is different), what trails we’re riding and who will be leading the group.
All rides start at 7:00 pm unless otherwise noted, and will plan to start on Tuesday May 3rd, as trail conditions allow.
If you want to group ride with the club you need to be a member, and PLEASE bring your membership number to each ride!
We are also looking for riders would would like to be LEADERS – so if you are confident at navigating the trails, and have a favourite loop you’d like to share please contact Georgi Pearson on Facebook or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
