Join us for the next Girls Rock ride with Bicycle Trip on Sunday, April 10. Bicycle Trip and Whole Foods will provide pre-ride coffee and a light breakfast and we’ll be raffling off some sweet schwag from Liv and Bicycle Trip. Plus, Girls Rock participants can join Bicycle Trip’s free customer loyalty program to earn 20% off all purchases.

Liv/Giant will be on-site with demo bikes available. These demos are FREE. Bikes available: Lust Advanced 1, Intrigue 1, Intrigue SX.  Learn about Liv Bikes.

  • RSVP by April 3 to demo by emailing AshBocast@liv-cycling.com
  • Include name, bike requested, height, pedal preference and phone number in your email

Krista Gray, IMBA Level 2 Certified Instructor will be offering a FREE Beginners Basic Mountain Biking Skills Clinic & Ride for the first 8 women to RSVP.  She will go over basics, including:

  • Neutral and ready position
  • Front and back bike/body position for climbing and descending
  • Side to side bike/body separation for maintaining balance in a straight line
  • Braking

The beginner’s group will begin our ride at Bicycle Trip with practicing new skills on flat ground. Then, we will progress onto the trail to ride up and down roots and rocks, narrow terrain, singletrack and fireroad at De LaVeaga Park.  There will be plenty of opportunities to practice challenging sections of the trails. We may ride up to 10 miles, but there will be plenty of rest stops.

We hope riders of all levels will join us for a fun, casual ride, leaving from the Bicycle Trip. We’ll follow our usual format, breaking into smaller groups by level and riding to Emma McCrary Trail. For more on skill levels, ride length and technical challenges, see our Riding Levels page.

In the event of rain cancellation, we hope to see you in April at the Sea Otter racecourse, at the CCCX races and in May at Epicenter Cycling.  See our calendar for more upcoming events and opportunities to ride bikes with local women.
