Join us at Big South Fork EPIC WEEKEND to celebrate National Trails Day with an EPIC JOY RIDE!!! Grab a friend or make some new ones at this event for female, female-identifying, and non-binary riders of all abilities.

This event is free, but please register by June 1st. This helps us ensure we have enough volunteers and supplies.

Joy Ride is here to help women feel comfortable in the woods. No one gets left behind, and everyone leaves with a big smile. We make sure every rider is comfortable with the group’s pace and that no section of trail is beyond the ability level of the group. We have options for all skill levels, so come party on single track with us!!

Bring your helmet, shoes, ride snacks, water, and a way to carry it on your ride! Bring a spare tube if you have one. PLEASE arrive before 10:30 AM for sign-in!

Ride leaders needed!

We are always looking for ride leaders and sweeps to lead our ride groups in a fun and safe manner. If you are a confident rider with a genuine interest in sharing your love of the sport and knowledge of the trails, please select “volunteer” in the ticket option below and be on the lookout for an email from caroline.mccarley@gmail.com. You don’t have to be an advanced rider to volunteer; just be confident at the level you choose in the follow-up form.

Riding Levels

Beginner: I’m relatively new to mtb. I like it and want to learn about how to be comfortable on varied terrain with more technical features.

Distance: 5- 7 miles

Intermediate: I am a confident rider and can ride my bike on technical terrain. I’m fine with roots and rocks, comfortable on blue trails and ready for new challenge.

Distance: 10 – 15 miles

Advanced: Let us know what you’re into! Want to get your miles in? We’ve got you covered.

Volunteer: I’m a confident rider. I know the trails well, and I’d love to help out as a ride leader or sweep! There will be a separate form for you to list your volunteer preferences. You don’t have to be an advanced rider to volunteer; just be confident at the level you choose in the volunteer form.

*Rides are subject to change based on weather and group consensus. Stay tuned for more info & updates.
