Women's Weekly Wednesday Mountain Bike Ride


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.


  • #26 – September 24: Center Trails (Note change from Ahquabi)
  • #27 – October 1: Sycamore
  • #28 – October 8: Center Trails: Denmans
  • #29 – October 15: Center Trails: Hillside & Roller Coaster
  • #30 – October 22: Center Trails: Hillside & Roller Coaster
  • #31 – October 29: Center Trails: Denmans

… and then it gets too dark at night. :-(

There are two more opportunities to try racing this year.

  • October 5: Ahquabi
  • October 25: Dirty Du (Hillside & Roller Coaster)

If you are at all interested, be sure to show up the weeks we are at those locations. We will help you get familiar with the course and any features!

Information Specific to this Date

Watch here for updates specific to Women’s Weekly Wednesday Mountain Bike Ride (WWWMBR) week #26 — September 24, 2014, 5:30 p.m.

Why not Ahquabi? Due to lack of folks willing to drive all the way to Ahquabi on a weeknight only to have it get dark early, we have decided to meet at Center Trails instead. If you would like to learn and practice the Ahquabi race course over the weekend of Sept 27–28, join the discussion thread on Facebook.
