I'm into xc and am just starting road cycling. I know what you mean I would love a girly group, if theirs anyone who lives in or near North Yorkshire and into xc or road, give me an firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mrs B has asked me to say on her behalf that she really enjoys the cycling we do together on the mountain bikes we bought in spring. She has also mastered her 'racer' in the last couple of months and feels as confident on it as she does on the mountain bike.
I'm so pleased for her I could burst!
Great that this forum has a space dedicated to women - now I've just got to talk her into registering so I don't have to speak for her!
Me! Though I haven't been able to work out what sort of MTB-ing it is, XC or DH (or something else I don't know about).
It's mostly through woods/forests/parks, and it's on an off-the-rack hardtail (Trek 6500 disc).
I love it, though. I either fall off or almost fall off with terrifying near-misses and skids on every ride, very exciting.. and I also love getting good n' muddy. I'd do it more if I had the time, and more riding buddies, as it is, I only manage a ride every fortnight or so at best, and usually on me tod
DnB, I'm not sure that you're after specifically female riding company, but if you are you might like to try contacting this club:
