GGG diva Melanie Norris is heading an effort to bring a women’s skills camp to Castle Rock on August 4, 2012. Mel is teaming with Debbie Causey of the Northwest Trail Alliance.
The skills camp will be based at the Castle Rock Bike Park, with instructors on hand to demo and advise on a variety of ride techniques and situations.
Mel and Debbie already have plans to expand the event to a two-day blowout in August 2013, with riding split between trail and skills practice at the bike park. They hope to bring in sponsors and offer everything from bike demos and a beer garden to pedicures and massages.
Mel, Debbie and I will be meeting with officials from the City of Castle Rock on June 12th to examine the possibilities and the potential obstacles. Obviously, we will need to have the bike park standing tall by August 4th.
Thanks to Mel and Debbie for taking the lead on this huge undertaking. Regardless of gender, we will all have a chance to play a role, so stay tuned for information about getting involved.
