    Women's Cycling

    I just moved here about two months ago from Hawaii and I am looking for a women's cycling group. I have not been on my bike in 5 months and I would really like to get back into cycling. If you have any information please let me know.

    Thanks

    I don't know of any women's specific groups, but I am always looking for other women to go biking with. There seem to be a shortage of them in AZ. PM me if you are ever interested in going for a ride. ~Kristen

    Welcome to Arizona! As for women riders, the best source if you are in the Phoenix area would be the true dean, or queen, if you will, of the women on here, DurtGurl. Kathleen knows other riders, and as for trail knowledge, she can cover it all.

    Most of us generally ride with the men. But you could check out the AZ Luna Chix...don't know much about them myself, but looks like they have group rides, etc..

    ask the peeps at dna cycles. i think they have a group that rides hawes all the time. im sure some of their riders have women who ride. durtgirl is definately a source of info as well. just pm her she wont lead you astray.

    hi courtney and kristen,

    i too live in mesa and am always looking for others to ride with.
    what kind of riders are you? xc, dH, racing, intermediate, advanced, technical, slow, etc?
    what trails have you ridden here?

    if you're a fearless and fairly advanced rider kathleen's group is your best connection in the valley. they're a bunch of great people who love hard/long rides and do fun socials as well. if i was a great rider (and younger ) i would join them, but they're WAY out of my league

    i'm a "slower" rider of intermediate skills who likes xc at moderate pace with stops for whatever, pictures, snacks, chat, etc.

    i've ridden with the luna chix a few times. they meet once a month, usually the first saturday of the month.

    if you'd like to ride this saturday (1/27) or during the week ~3:30pm please let me know.

    I definately a slow rider, I did not do much mountain biking in Hawaii. I was on my road bike most of the time.

    I have not been on any of the trails out here

    What type of gear do you guys wear out here? Coming from Hawaii I just have short sleeve jerseys and shorts.

    slow-rider, yeah!
    as far as gear, shorts might be ok but in the cold mornings layering is best. get some knickers or leg warmers and arm warmers and you'll be ok.

    i was thinking of going to mcdowell mtn park, north of fountain hills, tomorrow ~10am. let me know if you'd like to join me.
