    Any Women's Group Rides / Shop Rides in Fernie?

    Hi,
    My wife and I are planning to spend the better part of a week in Fernie later this month (Aug 23-28). We have our son with us, so riding together is not really an option.
    I'm familiar with the trails and comfortable riding on my own, but my wife doesn't know the trails and prefers to ride with a group. She mostly rides the West Bragg Creek trails in Alberta, and would be most confident on Green/Blue trails - probably not so much Verboten, Slunt/Brokeback, as an example. Probably more interested in XC trails rather than the FAR park, as well.
    Are there any options there for her to join a group?

    Thanks.

    I myself, am planning on doing the Fernie Enduro...

    guides hut, straightline are some of the bigger shops, best to call them.

    But I think most "group" rides are just friends hooking up for rides.

    Resort towns dont really have a "after work" as people work non-traditional shifts and days off.

    The ridgemont trails are WELL used in the evenings, worth just riding up and seeing who is around.
    good ski/bike deals at www.mntlion.com

    My life is better than your vacation.

    I realize this is a bit late, but for future reference there are the ' Women on Wheels' rides on Wednesday eve's from the Guides Hut. You will have to become a Fernie Mountain Bike club member to ride.

    Thanks for the suggestions. My wife ended up riding with the wife of a guy that did the enduro, and also did couple of solo rides. She enjoyed uprooted, the lower part of hyper vent and brokeback.
    For future reference if anyone in a similar boat - hang out at the pump track (our son is three and loved it) and talk to other parents.
