January 12, 2013 (Markham, ON) – Women of all ages and riding abilities will be coming from across North America to learn bike riding skills from experienced coaches in a supportive environment. Last year, close to 200 female riders took over Joyride150 to enjoy the annual 2-day event that takes place at Canada’s only indoor all-season multi-discipline bike park.
The park, which is usually filled predominately with male riders, will be open to female riders only for both mornings of the Women’s Weekend so that women can ride without the intimidation of the boys & the big crowds.
JOYRIDE150 will be featuring skills workshops in various areas of the park so that women can conquer their fears and learn to ride such things as the infamous foam pit, pump tracks, the beginner/sport/expert skinnies, resi jump, beginner/sport/expert jump lines, BMX street plaza, vert park, the cross-country loop with climbs & obstacles and much more.
NEW to this year’s event are additional clinics such as Bike Fit by Specialized Canada, Bike Knowledge (How to Buy a Bike) by Specialized Canada, Athletic Therapy & Injury Prevention by Inner Strength Physiotherapy, Bike Mechanics by Norco Canada, Spin Classes, Yoga and more! There will also be a “Learn To Ride” clinic for those that are new to riding. All types of riders and skill levels are welcome!
