Friday Night MTB Rides @ Bison Butte with Gill

One of goals of Velodonnas is to inspire and support women ride leaders. This year, Nancy Taylor started a weekly interval training session (Wednesday nights on the road) and now we have Gillian Cooper starting a weekly mountain bike ride – Friday nights at Bison Butte!
As with all of our weekly club rides, you must be a club member to join the fun. But, you can come for a one-time try out before you commit to membership. Just bring a signed waiver with you to that one-time try out ride (attached here). Find out more about becoming a Velodonnas member.
