The club team is for those womxn who are willing to push their limits in a more casual setting, without the pressure of having to race; Though we encourage you to dabble in the race scene if you so choose. We are passionate about getting as many womxn out on bikes as possible. We want you to feel knowledgeable and prepared for the trails and roads as well as the events in our community. By becoming a club team member of MT Alpha Cycling, you will have access to opportunities that further these motives. DETAILS: Our club and skills rides start Wednesday, May 19 at 6:15pm. Take what you learned from our mini clinics and apply it on the trail by joining the ride of your choice!
Option 1: a slower and shorter skills ride led by an experienced member of MT Alpha.
Option 2: the regular club team ride for a no-drop, intermediate-paced casual ride
Riders will meet at the same location but take different routes. The skills ride will be a shorter loop with less climbing, making time to stop at switchbacks and technical features to practice skills and build confidence. Ride leaders will vary. Each skills ride will have an uphill, downhill, or technical focus. Our first 2 club rides are listed here. You must join as a member to get weekly email updates on all of our rides and events.
