Are you a lady who loves riding mountain bikes? Do you especially enjoy riding mountain bikes with like-minded, trail-loving women? Or maybe you're curious about mountain biking but would feel more comfortable learning among a group of experienced and supportive female riders?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, the Women's Dirt Days Ride, hosted by Pretty Fast Women's Cycling, is definitely worth checking out.
This year, four Dirt Days rides were planned. The first took place last weekend at Kettle Moraine State Forest Southern Unit's John Muir Mountain Bike Trail.
While both trail systems offer excellent riding, if you're a beginner, you should definitely plan on attending the June 7 edition.
First off, Kettle's trails are one-way (Palos' trails are two-way). This allows you to better concentrate on honing your skills without worrying about oncoming traffic.
Lastly, if you don't own a mountain bike, Backyard Bikes is located pedaling distance from the trailhead, and rents high-quality steeds.
If you make it out for a Women's Dirt Day event, expect a laid back, relaxing vibe, fun and interesting people...and of course great riding.
