LADIES!! Come join GGR: Girlz Gone Riding for our annual women's weekend in Big Bear! This is truly my favorite event GGR puts on! Pure fun and epic riding! XC, DH, Enduro, meeting new friends, catching up with old friends, a rad group dinner and much more!
There is a TON of info here, so please read thoroughly! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me anytime: firstname.lastname@example.org or ping me via FB
- This is a LADIES only event. HOWEVER...... Partners are welcomed at the Saturday night group dinner.
- Our HOST BIKE SHOP is Bear Valley Bikes. They are offering 20% off of all accessories!
- This 3 day event is open to Greenie 2 riders and up: http://www.girlzgoneriding.com/ride-ratings.html.
- This is a FREE event to particiapte in for GGR members and all other women's clubs. However lift tickets, the group dinner and park entries are not free. Group dinner must be PRE PAID.
- You are required to reserve a spot for each event and can only be in 1 event at a time, so please don't sign up for 2 events that are going on simultaneously, it causes an admin nightmare for us and takes a spot for those that want to participate!
- We are limiting this event to 100 riders as usual, so if you need to cancel, it's your responsiblity to cancel your ticket, not the organizer, so please write down your login and password for Event Brite. PLEASE make sure to cancel the event so someone else can take your place! Even though this is FREE to participate in, you are still required to cancel to open up a spot for someone else. It also completely throws off our volunteer count when riders don't show up. Please be courteous and either show up or cancel your ticket.
- Downhillers: Full Face helmets, full finger gloves, knee and arm pads are mandatory. No exeptions. If you don't have these items, please either borrow or rent them from Bear Valley Bikes our annual HOST BIKE SHOP.
- If you are participating in the downhill activities at Snow Summit or the XC Greenie 2 guided rides, you will need to purchase a lift ticket. Blue riders and UP will be climbing up and will not need lift tickets for Saturday.
- Discount coupons tickets be available on your respective chapter pages for Snow Summit when it gets closer to the event. Lift tickets for Snow Summit: Full day with lunch: $39.62. Without lunch: $32.64
- Ride Volunteers: If you are a pre approved ride volunteer for GGR, we need you! Please fill out the volunteer spreadsheet for available openings which can be found on the GGR leadership FB page as the pinned post. Radios are required to be worn by all ride volunteers
