What are rides like?
We want our group rides to be a place you can come to be with friends. We have a no drop policy, so we will not leave anyone behind. Unless otherwise listed, Group rides start at 6 pm and typically end around 8 pm. Please meet at 5:45 at the designated lot.
What should I bring on a ride?
A mountain bike in safe and working order
Water, snacks, sunscreen and a small repair kit if you have one
Why do I have to sign up for rides?
The WMBA community has grown tremendously over the years, and we want to make sure that our growth is sustainable. By limiting group ride sizes at each location, our impact will be felt less by each park. Smaller group sizes should also allow for a better experience on the trail for all of our members.
It is also the policy of Colorado Springs Parks and Recreation that group rides with more than 100 people are considered special events, and special events are not permitted at parks that are TOPS properties. The WMBA Board of Directors worked in conjunction with COS Parks and Recreation to make sure that WMBA is acting in good faith as community partners to protect the trails that we all enjoy riding on.
