Meet other female riders & hit the Cumberland trails. There’s no better way to spend a Wednesday night!
The UROC Women’s Ride is a recreational, non-competitive, non-instructional, all-level MTB ride for local female riders. We meet every week on Wednesday evenings. Riders split off into smaller groups based on skill level, or what type of ride you’re in the mood for. Volunteer Ride Guides determine the routes.
We send out a weekly newsletter most weeks with some basic ride plans to help riders pre-select their rides (so we can get on the trails more quickly). Sign up for the newsletter here: http://eepurl.com/gnwPoL. You can unsubscribe anytime.
The 2022 season will begin in the spring and will run every Wednesday evening through to Summer. Be ready to roll out at 6:00 PM. If we miss a newsletter once or twice, not to worry – there will still be a ride!
We meet at No6 Mine Park, Derwent Av, Cumberland.
Adult women of all ages and MTB skill levels.
(Please note our rides are not instructional therefore absolute beginners to MTB should enroll on ‘Intro to riding’ with https://gravitymtb.ca/intro-to-mountain-biking-sessions/ )

Be a Part of it!
All Ride Guides are volunteers, and since we ride in multiple groups every week for up to 6 months of the year, that’s a lot of rides! If you’re interested in being a Ride Guide, please email us.
Ride Guides must know the trails well, keep their group together, be able to evacuate an injured rider (or broken bike), and commit to guiding multiple rides in the season (including 1 beginner ride).
