We were excited to see a lot of women at our mountain biking ride with 718 Cyclery last week. While the entire group was supportive of all levels of bikers, we were happy to hear about a few on-and-off trail organizations that focused on female bikers specifically. Check out the resources we were recommended below.
Dirt Rock n Root Training
If you want to hone your MTB skills, take a clinic or private lesson with Dirt Rock n Root at the Mountain Creek Bike Park in Vernon, NJ. DRRT’s mission is to empower women through mountain biking and create a community of female riders. Their instruction focuses on skills and can accommodate all levels of mountain bikers.
Grit hosts women’s mountain biking clinics around the country. 2016 clinic dates and locations will be announced in January, but private lessons with a Grit coach located nearby are always available. Clinics and lessons are tailored to the biker’s experience but time is split between skills practice and trail rides.
We can’t wait to bike with We Bike NYC—a women’s biking group that hosts themed rides around the city (last week they hosted a Holiday Lights ride which took bikers through Dyker Heights). The We Bike newsletter is also a great resource for gear recommendations and riding tips.
