All Levels Skills Night at Lyons Bike Park July 9th

The gurlz are riding tonight, Thursday, July 9th at the Lyons Bike Park.

This week we'll be focusing on pump-track awesomeness which includes, but is not limited to, high-speed cornering, floating over terrain, and most importantly (or at least, appreciated), you'll learn how to build momentum without pedaling, allowing you to fly up climbs with less effort and generally pick up speed whenever you want. The beauty of a pump track is that beginners, intermediates, and experts can all be challenged, learn and realize something awesome: Yes, you too can rail.

Please try to carpool! To carpool, meet at 28th and Iris – SE corner next to Sol Azteca at 5:15PM or meet at Sandstone Park by 5:45PM; we will ride over to the bike park together, as it is located out in the middle of a field, the location of which is difficult to describe. If you know where the bike park is, feel free to show up there ready to ride at 6PM. Click here for a map of the bike park; bike park located in the middle of the field west of the High School. Additional parking can be found in Lyons around Sandstone Park (between 3rd and 4th on Railroad Ave).

Dinner and drinks will follow at Oskar Blues in Lyons.

1. All riders MUST wear a helmet, bring water, and have a trail-ready bike. Riders should also carry the usual basics: spare tube(s), a pump, tire levers, a chain tool, and basic allen wrenches.

2. All riders ride at their own risk, group leaders take no responsibility for rider safety/injury.

3. Riders must sign a liability waiver once during the season. If this is your first ride of the season, please bring a signed waiver with you or be prepared to complete one at the meeting spot.

6. Please don't be shy about coming out - all of us love biking and would like to hang out with girls that are interested in biking.
