We’re aware that mountain biking can seem a bit of a male dominated sport, but our club has a good percentage of women members who mix in well. But we also understand that sometimes it’s nice to just ride with other women, even more so if you’re new to the sport/club and want to build up your confidence.
For those reasons we have a ladies officer and run regular “ladies only” rides to encourage more women to come and get involved. These are listed in the events calendar with a next to them. You can see what happened on previous ladies only rides by reading the ride reports.
However, we will stress that we are one club and we want more women to participate in all of our events. Everyone is welcome on all of our rides – we clearly label the difficulty and distance and we won’t leave anyone behind.
