Over the 2014 season, Shine Riders Co
, a women's mountain biking company, organized and led over 2 dozen FREE, No-Drop Style, Meet-Up Rides
. These rides varied in riding style (ex. enduro, downhill, dirt jump, etc.), skill ability, and fitness level. All rides put fun and rider safety as a priority, but also pushed rider limits. Some rides had shuttles, and some rides included a full weekend of camping. Some rides even included FREE skills coaching, dramatically increasing rider progression.
Shine is not alone in sharing the stoke of women's mountain biking. Throughout the world, more and more women are organizing group rides in their home regions and favourite ride locations. Their intentions are to share this special sport, connect with other women, and to bring awareness to their favourite trails.
