Join us on monthly women’s only group rides this Spring and Summer! These three hour events will start with bike checks and some basic skills then we’ll hit the trails for 5-7 miles of riding with some skills practice along the way. Hammond Hill State Forest is in Dryden, NY. Here the trails are a bit wider and smoother, making them fairly beginner friendly. Shindagin Hollow State Forest in Brooktondale is the premier (and oh-so-fun!) trail system in our area, and provides opportunity to work on navigating more small obstacles in the trail, experience flowy berms, and play on some built trail features. Chenango Valley State Park is closer to Binghamton and shows off some fun, rocky terrain. RSVP by the Thursday prior to the event.
We recommend a well-tuned mountain bike with at least a front suspension fork (that moves!). Basic hardtail mountain bikes are available for a $20 rental fee through Cornell Outdoor Education. Once you RSVP, we will send you a skills questionnaire. On the questionnaire, please indicate if you would like us to bring a mountain bike to the event for you.
Helmets are required to join the ride. Wear comfortable, athletic clothes and shoes, and bring water and a snack.
