Girls Ride Club 2024

MORE GIRLS ON BIKES! Girls’ Ride Club gets girls and young women mountain biking together in a fun and social environment using a group ride format. We offer female riders 9-18 a safe space to gain confidence, skills and fitness by inspiring and supporting one another. Based primarily in the fabulous Tri-Cities, this is a non-competitive program with a XC/Trail riding focus, which basically means we’ll be riding up and down (gotta earn your turns)!

“Mountain biking is super-fun, whether you’re riding alone or with friends, but some kind of magic happens when women ride together.” – Sandra Walter, Girls’ Ride Club Founder

When/Where: Friday May 3rd 4:00-5:30pm at Burke Mountain (meet at 3501 Harper Road)

Who: Advanced girls and non-binary riders 13-18+
