We are excited to ride from Epicenter Cycling’s Mission St. location on Sunday, November 13!

This ride will be open to ALL LEVELS.  Please refer to our Ride Level descriptions to find the group you will be most comfortable riding with.

Trek representative Chris Boutilier will be on hand with additional Trek demo bikes. He'll help set up Trek demos before the ride. After the ride, he'll be happy to help with set-up for any bikes. There will also be FREE saddle fittings utilizing new pressure mapping technology.

Clif Bar and Epicenter will provide pre-ride fuel while we mingle with our community of female cyclists. We’ll raffle off some sweet swag from Epicenter, Bell Helmets and CamelBak. Have a blast on the trails and be sure to work up an appetite for a post-ride sandwich bar, plus beer & cider!  — all compliments of Epicenter.
