    Yes, Asheville Womens Cycling Club is leading rides out of Bent Creek on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month. Our next ride will be April 5. We welcome women riders of all abilities, especially those who are unfamiliar with mountain bikes and trail riding. More information can be found at ashevillewomenscycling.com

    you all should do some networking with the Charlotte and Ashville girls. I'm sure there is a large group of Charlotte girls willing to come up for a Saturday/ Sunday ride

    just a suggestion...

    Thanks for the info and sorry again for hijacking the thread.

    My buds and I are gravity junkies, so sometimes it's hard for her to feel at home (us being guys, going fast, and related skill level). I'd like to have her find some women similar in skill level (or even not) for her to pair up with when I don't ride with her myself and tone it down a bit.

    Again...Asheville Women's Cycling Club does a group ride on the 1st & 3rd Tuesday of each month. The next ride is April 5th.

    We have all levels and will split the group accordingly...the only way she is going to find some riding partners is to come out and ride with like-minded women. We do not have any weekend rides on the calendar as of yet but I do know many women are looking to hook up with others to ride on Saturdays & Sundays!

    Sycamore Cycles does a ride from the shop (carpool to trailhead) on Wednesdays...you will have to contact them for more info.

    Check out the blog and/or calendar on www.ashevillewomenscycling.com
