Confident, strong girls on mountain bikes unite!

Timber Ridge Resort, 4050 E. Hammond Rd, Traverse City.

 

WHO CAN COME?

All awesome girls and their families are welcome no matter their mountain bike experience or skill.

 

HOW FAR IS THE RIDE?

The Vasa Singletrack is great for all abilities. Not too hilly or technical but still challenging:

5 distances available:

  • 1 mile – Paved loop around Timber Ridge for our balance bike superstars
  • 3 miles – Flat and easy on the Fatbike loop for our youngest shredders
  • 6 miles  – Flat’ish Fatbbike + Kinglet loop for beginner riders
  • 8 miles – Iceman’s hilly Slush Cup course for our intermediate riders
  • 15 miles – Big Vasa loop for advanced riders

See Vasa map HERE.

 

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

  • A mountain bike that functions. It doesn’t need to be fancy but it should roll, shift and stop.
  • A helmet.
  • A water bottle.

WILL THERE BE COOKIES AFTER?

Of course! Big thanks to our friends at Breakaway Cafe for bringing the treats!

 

IS IT FREE?

You betcha.

 

Email us at hello@elgruponorte.org with questions. We 100% support young ladies who know their way and have the necessary skills to ride alone/sans adult but we ask that parents ride with their child if not.
