WE HAVE MOVED TO FACEBOOK AND MEWE..... So, the original goal was to expand on the existing (and fabulous) mtb groups to include women who live outside of the "official" PDX metro area. All this really means is that our social gatherings will include more locations on the West Side, rather than being limited to SE, NE, NoPo, etc. We will meet throughout Portland as well, but not everyone lives in Portland.
This group is open to ALL women, cis, transgender, etc. The real goal, ultimately, is to create yet another group of fun women who love to mountain bike.
I am fairly new to the sport at almost 3 years into it, but already have a third bike and have enjoyed exploring places like Sandy Ridge, Alsea Falls, Phil's in Bend, Stubb Stewart, Black Rock, Post Canyon, Growlers, and others.
So -- let's get a solid group of girls going, 40-50+ strongly encouraged, to improve our fitness, fine-tune our skills, and share our bravery and love of the outdoors. This is about sharing, encouraging, mentoring, and keeping it real. Hosting bike skills and maintenance clinics, enjoying post-ride pizza and IPAs, and throwing in the occasional hike or swim for cross training are other things I would like to incorporate, if there is interest. This group is going to be pretty organic, so come be a part of it!
*Our goal is NOT to compete with existing women's mtb groups, btw. We will always cross post events when we are aware of them.
