    How long is the ride going to be? I am bringing my very new to biking girlfriend, and don't want her to be intimidated.

    The beginners ride will be about 4-6 miles and run mostly along Forbidden Drive with a short loop along the Demo 1 trail. The Demo 1 trail is mostly packed dirt trail with only a few rocks on the trail.
    The course for the intermediate ride is not certain at this point but may run along the entire Manyunk/Roxborough side of the park. Figure on 12+ miles. I'll know more on Thursday and will post more details.

    We will start from Northwestern at 10:30 and head south on Forbidden Drive , then up Wise's Mill Road, turn left onto the Demo 1 trail and head south (downstream) to the golf course. There will be an opt out there, or you can ride up Forbidden Drive, cross the stream at Gorgas Lane to the east (Mount Airy) side and ride a small stint on that trail heading in an upstream direction.

    Tuesday Women's Ride

    I went to the Rally in the Valley yesterday and had such a good time. I was interested in more information on the Tuesday evening rides. I am in the process of getting my permit. What time do the rides start and from what location? Do you have beginners? I am really just starting to ride.

    The ride starts at the parking lot located at Livezey St. and Henry Avenue. The pavilion where the riders meet is next to the main parking area. There is some parking just as you turn onto Livezey but keep going and you will see the pavilion. I think you will fit in fine with the ride, this is a pleasure ride not a training ride for racers.

    Link to map of the parking lot area is below.
