Ride Dirt and Workshop Series – Trail-side Repairs

August 28 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Join me, Ellen Campbell, for a fun Wednesday of riding bikes on dirt, making friends and learning new things! We will be heading out for a little ride on local trails and dirt roads where we can meet new cycling friends. During the ride we will have a short workshop to gain new knowledge and practice skills. Check out the schedule below. Please RSVP for each event you would like to attend! With an RSVP you will receive email updates about what to bring and any last minute updates. 

These rides and workshops are open to all women, femme, trans and non-binary folks. I welcome ALL abilities but encourage some experience riding single track or dirt roads. Our rides are fairly short (>7miles), on easy terrain however. These rides are FREE for participants and are supported by Specialized, Tailwind Nutrition, Rapha and Wahoo! 

During the ride we will have a short workshop to gain new knowledge and practice skills. Please RSVP for each event you would like to attend!
