Looks like it's going to be a great event! I wish I could come... but I'll be stuck in at a soccer tournament in South Jersey! :-(

Awesome Overbook!!! I might be showing up with 3 sixth grade grom'ettes!! Question, will the coaches be female? And one girl has a bike that's a little "iffy" let's just say. Will there be a bike available for a smaller 6th grader?. Thanks!!

The Try It Out rides typically have a trailer full of loaner bikes.

Yes, female coaches. @muddybike is leading the charge. We'll have bikes there to loan out. Interest is high at the moment, so there is a chance that we will have to send bikes out in shifts, but definitely bring them out, everyone rides! =)

of course any NICA coaches from any teams can help too, register and bring those girl riders and ride along to support

So, I showed up today with my niece at 9:45 but no peeps there...I guess I should have read a little further than the title of the thread that says "Saturday". We rode the rail trail for an hour which was fun. Won't be able to be there tomorrow...

Thank you so much muddybike and all the rest of the coaches! The girls had a great time! Action packed day with a skills seminar and a group ride. The girls had so much fun they didn't even complain about the bone-chilling temperatures and wind.....
