This is a group for women mountain bikers who live (or live to ride) in Santa Cruz County.
It is intended to act as a hub, both online and off, for women to:
meet new ride partners and make new friends
explore new trails, help maintain existing trails
support each other's progress and inspire new challenges
support and get more involved in our local bike community
share and/or gain bike and trail knowledge
have fun and positive experiences on the trail
Members are encouraged to host their own rides by suggesting a new meetup, or contacting Members with similar riding abilities directly vie email to find new riding partners.
A one-time suggested fee of $5 is requested of each active member to help cover hosting costs and event incidentals. Members who contribute will be recognized with a "MEETUP SUPPORTER" title noted under their member name. Payment can be made in cash at an Organizer-hosted event or online via Paypal.
***Please note: Helmets are required on all rides***
