Mondays – Women’s Beginner Singletrack Ride Series (RSVP Required)

Beginner Mountain Bike Rides for Women – leave ORS at 5:30pm

Are you comfortable riding a bike but new to mountain biking? Do you want to see what riding singletrack is all about in a welcoming small group with other female riders? Onion River Sports is excited to announce a new beginner singletrack ride series just for women! Join us on Mondays as we explore a beginner-friendly local trail system with ride leaders from the shop. Finally, a group mountain bike ride intended for novices to the sport! To ensure a comfortable group size, this ride is capped with a maximum number of participants–but that means space is limited, so sign up now! $15 (covers trail fees for all rides)


Tuesdays- Gravel (Early Spring  to MTB Season)

ALL LEVELS Gravel Rides – leave ORS at 6:05pm

Where the pavement ends, adventure begins. As frosty fat bike season yields to muddy gravel season, we’ll switch the lights over and start (re)exploring the dirt roads around Central Vermont. All rides meet and depart from ORS. Apres on our back deck or likely at Three Penny Taproom. Email us to be added to the ride list or join our Facebook group for late breaking news regarding weather shifts and course changes. As most of our dirt roads head up and out of town, expect climbing, cold descents and 15-20 miles of dusk riding to get you set for April Grinds and the summer riding season!


Tuesdays- Mountain (Late Spring – Fall)
