A super fun day out for female mountain bikers is a promise.

And that promise is not made lightly as it's made in memory of keen rider, Stephanie McHale, who died late last year.

"We can't promise good weather, but we can definitely promise it will be heaps of fun - a unique opportunity for the Sisterhood of Riders to come together for a great cause and ride together in a very friendly format on intermediate trails we all know and love," said organiser Agnes Arnold.

Organisers of the event are humbled to ride for Stephanie, and also to support her family who have decided to donate proceeds of the fundraiser to the Rotorua Hospital Special Care Baby Unit.

"Steph was a keen cyclist as well, among her many talents, and many of us have ridden with her or her family members in the past. We would love to encourage great participation in the event to encourage more women to ride and riding for Steph makes it a lot more special still," said Mrs Arnold.

The female only event is mostly on downhill intermediate graded tracks and takes between 15 to 35 minutes. It starts at the Tokorangi Trail, Katore Rd and bus shuttles have been organised to get bikers to and from the event to make things easy.

Southstar Shuttles will be spiriting participants up to the top of Tokorangi for both practice and racing at no charge.

If racing is not your strength, there truly is going to be something for every female rider. Not only can they ride to compete or just for fun, but they can also enter the baking competition - which everyone gets to enter and vote in.

The day wouldn't be complete without the chance to get your glad rags on and prizes are in store for riders who are the best dressed and have the best themed team costumes. Music, free food from Pita Pit, and spot prizes for everyone who enters makes this a day not to be missed.
