Time to get your friends together to ride Cumberland’s world class trails at the inaugural Coaltown Throwdown Women’s Enduro presented by Shimano Saturday June 4th 2022.

This United Riders of Cumberland event was created with the vision of getting more women on bikes, and expanding personal limits and boundaries, while connecting and having fun with other awesome humans in nature. The Coaltown fun race is sponsored by Shimano and will be followed by a Throwdown afterparty sponsored by Vancouver Island Brewing, accompanied by a fully catered meal, DJ and dancing.

There will be two distance options and four race categories provided. A shorter course for youth (~15 km) and a mid-length course (~25 km) for the ‘cruisers’, ‘givers’ and ‘full sendr’s’. The course will be approachable for blue-level riders while leaving all levels of riders grinning from ear to ear. The stages and transitions will be well marked and include professional chip timing services.

There will be fun stations on course, swag give aways, draw prizes and category prizing from our generous sponsors and UROC. You’ll feel supported with cheers and surprises, and fuelled by an abundance of snacks and drinks, while you sample Cumberland’s amazing network, built by volunteers and maintained by the United Riders of Cumberland.
