This is a ladies-only ride. Weather calls for sunshine ☀️ and dirt. These trails are on the "flatter, upper section". We will not be going down the steep hillside to ride on the other side of the tracks. There will be some doubling back over trails, keeping in mind they always look and feel different going the reverse. There is enough trails to get a good long ride in and we can session anything. This a decent area to get good at roots. My plan is 1.5-2 hours of riding fairly continuous, with just short breaks. There have been owls in the area, so we will respect them wherever they are.

Trails: flowy, some hills, decent amount of rooty bits, maybe mosquitoes...

Conditions for cancellation:  heavy wind, lightning, deep snow.  We ride in the rain and cold!

If a ride must be cancelled, the ride leader will attempt to notify anyone signed up by 3 pm the day before.

Grunt rating:  Some shortish climbs. Plan to ride for about 2 hours with breaks.

Crank Sisters have a no-drop policy.  We will regroup often and adjust the pace based on riders' preference.
