The WOW Butterfly Ride has been postponed until Wednesday, August 23, due to thunderstorms on August 16.

Message from WOW co-leader Corrine Leistikow:

Yes, it’s almost time for the annual WOW BUTTERFLY RIDE! I know you all have been anxiously waiting.

Meet  Wed. August 23 August 16, at the Musher’s Hall, ready to fly up Summit at 6:00 pm.

What is it, you ask? It consists of climbing and descending 4 hills. Since butterflies have 4 wings it’s called the Butterfly Ride. You fly up and then you fly down. About 25 miles, approx. 2 hours, 2,960 ft. elevation gain, and a whole lot of FUN!

This ride is not just for WOW (Women on Wheels) riders. SCOW (SCUM on Wheels), SOW (Spouses on Wheels), COW (Children on Wheels) and any other FCC members are encouraged to join us. This event is a ride, not a race, which means you ride at the pace you want. Helmets are mandatory.

Meet at the bottom of Summit for the first hill and ready to conquer all 4 ascents and descents of Summit, Skyline, McGrath, and Skyridge.


  • Up Summit, down Skyline
  • Up McGrath, partway down Old Steese
  • Up Skyridge, down Summit
  • Up Skyline, down Skyridge
  • Up Old Steese, down McGrath

BUTTERFLY RIDE—25 mi. ride time-approx 1 hr, 45 min to 2 hrs, 30 min.

Bring snacks; we’re going to need them after this ride. I’ll bring cookies. It’ll be AWESOME!

Don’t feel like you can fly up and down all 4 hills? Then do as many as you can. You are going to LOVE this ride! Don’t miss out, see you there.
