This ride has been cancelled due to low temperatures, high wind, and rain. 

 

This ride is for all cis and trans women, as well as non-binary people who are comfortable in a space that centers the experience of women.

Join us as we ride some of the best trails on Tiger Mountain! We'll be climbing Master Link, Quick Link, and Powerlink, then descending East Tiger Summit, Extra Terrestrial, Fully Rigid, Joy Ride, and Northwest Timber. The route is subject to change based on weather & mountain conditions but plan for a full Tiger summit climb. The ride is approximately 13miles with 2400' of climbing and descending. 

Riders should be comfortable riding steep blue trails and managing speed through flowy sections. There are no mandatory drops, gaps, or jumps, but it's very easy to ride fast on Extra Terrestrial and get some unexpected air! Fully Rigid is an old-school technical trail with some tricky features. We can always stop and session them if folks would like!

Please arrive by 9am. After short instructions and a pre-ride bike safety check, the ride will begin at 9:15am from the trailhead sign in the upper lot. Parking in the upper lot requires a Discover Pass, but the lower lot does not. If you choose to park in the lower lot, give yourself 5-10 minutes to ride up to the trailhead. The upper lot is accessed via a gravel road off of Highway 18. Follow signs for East Tiger Summit.

Please be on time—we cannot wait more than 10 minutes for late arrivers. If you decide not to come, please text me. Once you are signed up, I will email you with contact information the day before the ride. We will ride for 3-4 hours with breaks interspersed. About 1hr to 1h30min is expected for climbing to the summit. Check the Evergreen link below & Trailforks for more info about the area.

This ride will have two leaders - a fast climber and a slower climber. You are welcome to join whichever group feels the most fun for you! We will regroup regularly to check in with each other.

Crank Sisters has a no-drop policy. We will regroup often and adjust the pace based on riders' preference. Please make sure your bike is in good working order. If you are not sure, take it to your bike mechanic before the ride. 

Conditions for cancellation: Heavy wind or lightning. If a ride must be canceled, the ride leader will attempt to contact anyone signed up by 3 pm the day before the ride.

Please remember to bring with you: Helmet, tube(s), pump/CO2, tools/repair kit, water, food, and clothing appropriate for weather conditions.  Knee and elbow pads are optional.
