6:00 pm: Women's Mountain Bike Skills Clinic and Ride
September 27, 2017
Join Trek Women's Advocate Lori Hauswirth and other local mountain bikers for an evening skills min-clinic and group ride focused on the ladies! All skill levels and ages welcome and you are encouraged to bring a friend that maybe hasn't been on the trail before. No bike, no worries! Give Cross Country Sports at 906-337-4520 a call to reserve a complimentary bike for the event.
Meet at the Swedetown Chalet in Calumet at 6pm ready to ride. We will spend a short time getting comfortable on our bikes with some basic skills instruction and then roll out to take in the fall colors via casual rides for all abilities. Oh yes, and it's FREE with a goal of getting more women on bikes.
