With a some hillside single track to finish that puts a smile on your face. Optional water splash for these riders too.

Can boys or men come?
Yes, although our main objective is to encourage women, we are not exclusive. Men are welcome to attend if they feel this sort of environment would suit them. We most definitely encourage mothers to ride with their sons. A common reason we find for women to attend Ginger Squirrel Adventure rides is where they have a cycling mad son and they wish to find a location where mixed abilities can spend time together.
