July 28th - Albion Hills Conservation Area
The Fly Gurlz are pleased to announce that over 100 women have registered for the inaugural 10 hour women's only mountain bike relay. "We are having a ton of fun organizing the event" says Michelle Ward, Director of the program. "At the end of the day our team is going to have as much fun as our participants".
Each rider will receive a limited edition "Peace, Love and Mountain Biking" tote filled with loot from the program sponsors. "We also custom sewed all the race bibs as 1950 style aprons, they are a riot and will become another great keepsake from the event". Music will also work within the 1950's theme "Music is a huge motivator so we have put together 10 amazing hours of tunes, the day will start with Rock Around the Clock by Bill Haley & The Comets because that's just what we intend to do!"
The course will be roughly 8 km long and will be a very fun mix of both double and single track. The event takes place at Lakeview Sites 1 & 2, Albion Hills Conservation Area. Many women participating have never raced before and the whole point of the event is to introduce the concept in a fun, relaxed and supportive atmosphere!
The biggest challenge for the fantastic Fly Gurlz team will be trying to get some sleep leading up to the event. "Hosting this race is a dream come true, it's all any of us can think about this week, we have had the idea on our radar for the last few years and executing on it is so exciting".
We want to thank Chico Racing for their generous support of this event!
