CANCELLED - YKA (you kick ass) Support Rides for Women


yka
 
DUE TO HEALTH CONCERNS SURROUNDING THE POTENTIAL SPREAD OF COVID-19, RIDES AND GROUP EVENTS WILL BE CANCELLED UNTIL APRIL 30TH.
 
Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance and Seattle Mountain Bike tours are partnering up to offer a series of 8 Free monthly beginner mountain bike rides to support women overcoming the trauma of abuse. Abuse can take many forms whether it be emotional, mental, physical or sexual and the damage can be not only difficult to overcome, but debilitating. 
As avid riders, we know well the therapeutic and healing power of mountain biking and just how amazing and free it can make you feel. We want to share that and provide access to women on their path to healing. Get outside and feel alive while learning something new and feeling the community and support of other women! 
Rides, Bikes, Transportation and Instruction are all FREE!
  • You will be guided by 3 certified instructors/guides. We will go over basic safety, instruction and body position as well as some skill building focusing on a different skill with each ride. 
  • Locations will vary from month to month so that you can enjoy and discover new trails
  • We are providing a limited number of bikes and safety equipment
  • Transportation provided from a central location (TBD) in Seattle to the trail for up to 7 women, so sign up early! 
  • We are going to have fun!! You will be smiling at the end of these rides! 
Please note that space is limited to the first 7 riders who sign up
