Most folks arrive around 7:00 pm, order food, and/or drinks, hang out and chat. Between approximately 7:30 and 8 pm, we hold a half-hour informal meeting, where we talk about Bicycle Coalition and community events and anything on tap regarding bicycles in the area. After the meeting, people resume hanging out and chatting.

It’s really fun, a great way to find out what we’re up to, and, if you’d like, to get more involved. We’d love it if you joined us!

Hillandale Haircuts (Trail Work) @ Hillandale Park
Oct 11 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

The Women on Wheels (hailing from Harrisonburg and surrounding areas) have adopted the Rocktown Trails at Hillandale Park. Our adoption means we are working to keep the trails open for all users and the trails need your help.

A very rainy summer has left us more than our usual high grass sections and “problem” puddles. Significant trail grooming and mud puddle repairs are overdue.

Grab your gloves, pruners, loppers and limber up your strong hands as we will tackle some muddy sections, cut back the tall grass, fight invasive plant species and keep sight lines open (so you can see around corners). There is truly something for everyone at Hillandale!

Please consider joining us at one of the following mini trail work sessions:

Wed. Sept. 12: 3-6 p.m.
Wed. Sept. 19: 9-12 p.m.
Sat. Sept. 22: 9-12 p.m.
Tues. Oct. 2: 4-7 p.m.
Thurs. Oct. 11: 4-7 p.m.

We will meet at the bottom of the Power Line Trail. This is not exclusively for women-only, we’ll take help from anyone who wants to join us!
