Women’s mountain bike rides to begin at Freedom Park
The Eastern Virginia Mountain Bike Association (EVMA) will host a women’s only mountain bike ride on Sept. 1, 9-11 a.m. at Freedom Park. Rides are also scheduled for Oct. 6, Nov. 3 and Dec. 1. The bike rides are open to all ages and experience levels and will include novice and intermediate/advanced groups. Riders will meet outside the Freedom Park Interpretive Center located at 5537 Centerville Rd.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn the trail system of over 20 miles of single-track and multiuse trails, meet fellow female riders in the community and learn the ins-and-outs of mountain biking. In addition to a bike and helmet, riders are encouraged to bring water bottles and/or hydration packs.
Freedom Park is open daily from 7 a.m. until sunset. The Interpretive Center is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m.to 5 p.m. For more information, stop by the Park, visit jamescitycountyva.gov/recreation or call 757-259-4022.
