How it works
Every week we ride a new trail (or trails). From the trail head meeting spot we split up into 3 groups – advanced, intermediate and beginner. The advanced group is for riders with a fair amount of experience and technical skills, the intermediate group will typically follow the same trail route as the advanced but at a slightly reduced pace and the beginner level group is for riders who 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. Rides average 1h40min in length.
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 are joining in mid season have no fear, with the 3 levels always riding you will be able to keep up.
All rides start at 7:00 pm unless otherwise noted, and will plan to start on Tuesday May 7th, 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 who would like to be LEADERS. If you are confident at navigating the trails, and have a favourite loop you’d like to share, please email us or respond to our recruitment calls on the ‘Dirt Girls – CMBC’ Facebook page.
Last but not least, we are grateful to the Medicine Chest for their sponsorship. It allows us to offer weekly rides for free, and covers our advertising and insurancecosts. Thank you Medicine Chest!
