    Women's Rides in Tucson

    Does anyone know of any women's trail rides in Tucson? This is for someone very XC oriented and very beginner. Do any of the Tucson shops do anything?

    Fantasy Island might have some stuff you have to hop off for, but the bulk of it should be rideable. Trailhead is on the corner of Harrison and Irvington. There's about 18-20 miles of trails.

    Unfortunately, Tucson is more of a roadie town than Phoenix. I haven't come across any shops that have a group mountain ride. Might want to call Tucson Bicycles on Swan and Sunrise, they might have something.

    Have to admit, I'm not sure what you mean by women's trail rides though, a trail is a trail, doesn't matter what sex you are.

    My girlfriend lives in Tucson and would like find some people to join on casual rides. There were rides in Phoenix when she lived there (Desert Wildflowers or something) and she would still consider herself a beginner so she would like to ride with other women. She doesn't huck, doesn't do anything to crazy, she just likes to ride easy flowing singletrack. I can understand that she wants to ride with other women at first as us guys can tend to be well, difficult to new riders, even though we don't mean to be. That's why I asked about a women's groups or a women's specific ride.

    Just to clarify, I was not assigning any gender roles to the difficulty of a trail. I was talking about a group of women that ride on any of the xc trails in Tucson.

    Check out SDMB

    Check out the SDMB website and calendar at www.sdmb.org. They often have female-only or female-friendly rides posted, and Martha sometimes puts on MTB101 rides for beginners or anyone looking to improve (the next one scheduled is for 2/12).

    Definitely check out the SDMB website. I have watched Martha teach, and have ridden with her before. Patient, reliable, and does the exclude the boys rides (rats). She also has her own website, check it out here.
