This is a ladies-only ride. This is the second of our Tiger Progressive Rides this fall. Progressive rides get longer and more technical as the season progresses.

You can ride these trails on a XC bike or a hardtail, but if you have a bike with 5-6 " of travel, bring it.

Meet at East Tiger Summit at 2pm.
Starting time is 2:15 PM.  Please be on time--we cannot wait more than 10 minutes for late arrivers.

Suggested Equipment: elbow and knee armor, optional
Trails: Preston Rail road, NW Timber

 

Please make sure your bike is in good working order. If you are not sure, take it to your bike mechanic before the ride. Also, bring an extra tube that fits your bike, so you can repair a flat tire
