Women's Weekly Wednesday Mountain Bike Ride


Cancelled for Trail Conditions


Mountain Biking

Distance - 6–12 miles

General Information

Every Wednesday evening this summer, Cheryl and Katherine are hosting a weekly ride for women who want to learn how to mountain bike, want to get better at mountain biking, want to explore new trails, want to practice for mountain bike races, or just want to ride with other women.

All skill levels are encouraged to come ride! You just need a mountain bike, a helmet, and a desire to have fun. Beginner through expert, we will break into multiple groups as appropriate.

We will make sure no one gets lost and everyone has support to try new things, and we’ll offer tips and instruction along the way.

We plan to meet at a variety of local (DSM area) trails to get lots of experience. Keep checking Facebook and the "Information Specific to this Date" section below for updates. Locations may change due to weather and trail conditions.

Information Specific to this Date

Watch here for updates specific to Women’s Weekly Wednesday Mountain Bike Ride (WWWMBR) Week #12 — June 18, 2014, 5:30 p.m.

Trail Conditions (updated 6/18 1:00 p.m.): Things are holding at "maybe." This morning, Cheryl and didn't think there would be any dirt in the area. We are now keeping an eye on this tread in the Center Trails FB group and waiting to hear from Brian:

Cancelled for Trail Conditions: Darn, things are just too iffy. :-(


It's time to hit Hillside! We will start simply, and then possibly break into two or more groups. We'll go up the south hill (climb, but nothing technical) and ride the top loops (a little tech, but no climbs). Based on who wants to do what, we'll explore more of Hillside and head on over to Roller Coaster.
