HillJillys MTB Ride:
Saturday, May 2nd, 9:30am

CANCELED! Those trails got a whole lot of rain yesterday, with more expected today. Gonna give them a chance to recover a bit.

Back on our mountain bikes this weekend, and eatin' up those trails in Annadel before they get dusty: Saturday, May 2nd, 9:30am, led by Kim. Meet at Channel Drive, at the bottom of Cobblestone.

Beginner-friendly, as always. Everyone welcome, and no one left behind! (Rain cancels.)

HillJillys: Seeking Ride Leaders
+ MTB Ride, Thursday, April 23rd, 5:30pm

More Leaders = More Rides

It could totally be you.

First, this: Sarah is leading another after-work MTB ride on Thursday, April 23rd, 5:30pm; meet at Channel Drive, at the bottom of Cobblestone. Beginner-friendly, as always!

Back to those ride leaders...

It's easy to lead a ride. Really. All you have to do are these things:
1. Pick a route. (Rides start Saturday mornings at 9:30am, so you don't even have to choose a time.) Routes can be flexible, too, if you want feedback from the HillJillys who show up. 2. Commit! You are the one person who can't bail on the ride, even if you wake up in the morning and still feel the call of your pillow. 3. Be supportive and friendly to everyone who shows up, and make sure no one gets left behind.

Simple, right? You'll note what's not on the list: you don't have to be fast or fit or do it all the time. What we really need is a bank of women who can be on call, who might be willing to lead a ride once in a while, so that folks can fill in on the Saturdays when I can't make it. If that could be you, drop me a line and we'll talk more.

Thanks for all you do! --kimdow

HillJillys Rides, Week of April 13th:
MTB, Thursday PM & Saturday AM

You know it: the days are longer, and that means one thing... after-work rides!

Sarah is leading an evening MTB ride on Thursday, April 16th, 5:30pm; meet at Channel Drive, at the bottom of Cobblestone. It won't be super long, what with the daylight limitation, so feel free to extend before or after as your schedule and ambition allows. Hopefully, this can be a weekly ritual through the warm summer weeks ahead--BUT, Sarah can only lead it for this week and next for sure... so we're actively looking for volunteers to lead it the week after that (April 30th) and any Thursday thereafter. Let us know, eh?

More MTB fun on the weekend: Saturday, April 18th, 9:30am, led by Kim. Meet up in the same place on Channel.

Beginner-friendly, as always. Have no fear: on a HillJillys ride, you will never be abandoned!

HillJillys Road Ride:
Saturday, April 11th, 9:30am

We are slip-sliding into peak riding season, girls. The days are long, the weather is fine, the conditions are stellar, and there is no better time to make good on that resolution to get on your bike more...

This Saturday, Kristy is leading out a Chalk Hill loop from Windsor. Meet at Esposti Park at Old Redwood Hwy & Shiloh, 9:30am on Saturday. And, as with all HillJillys excursions, this is a no-drop ride—all are welcome, and no one left behind!

... starting next Thursday, April 16: afterwork Annadel MTB rides! More info to come next week...
