    Female front range riders?

    Hey, I'm borrowing my hubby's account for a bit. My name is Kim, and I'm looking for some other girls to ride with in the JeffCo area. I just got my first full suspension mountain bike a couple of months ago, but because my husband travels a lot during summer, I haven't ridden nearly as much as I would like. I'm not really fast uphill, but my confidence has been boosted a lot on the downhills with the new bike. I like Lair and Mt Falcon, but really any trail is ok.

    I've done a bit of searching, but my husband suggested I post here to see if there might be a beginners group or something like that for women. Unfortunately I work some weekends, but I have all day Tuesdays and Thursdays to ride. I have a road bike as well if anyone does that too. Thanks for any info!

    Wow, sounds perfect! Now is a busy time at work, but I can probably change my schedule around in a couple of months to be able to ride. Thanks for the link!!!

    Hi there! i'm always up to ride especially with other women. I mostly mountain bike and am usually the only girl with a group of guys which is good at times because it pushes me but sometimes you just need some girl time! I also just bought a road bike on Saturday and went for my first road ride Sunday night. I'd be up for catching up and doing either! do you have lights?

    If you feel like venturing up to Boulder next spring or summer, we have a group that rides weekly. http://tuesdayrides.blogspot.com/

    BRG, IttyBittyBetty and Weime are some of the regulars/ride leaders.

    We will probably actually ride on Thursdays in 09, despite the name of the blog.

    Ok, Ok, When I get home...

    I'll post a pic or two! HOWEVER, we girls are STILL riding the trails. We just did Chimney over to EF and Apex on Saturday (which was actually a coed ride with 13 chickas and 6 dudes). Tomorrow morning we are meeting at Matthews/Winters @ 8:30 am for a ride -- and yes, you dudes are invited as well. This coming Saturday, TBD!

    So, there ya go -- ladies, we have rides going on the front range....

    There is a Diva group in Summit County also. I don't know the contact info but I'll bet a google search will turn something up.

    That's pretty awesome that you ladies have an organized group for rides. Wish more women were into mountain biking. I never could get my ex-girlfriend into it. She just liked to shop alot.

    But what happens when one of them gets a flat or needs a repair.

    Uh, huh. If you STFU right now, maybe IttyBittyBetty and I will save your sorry a$$ the next time you are broken down on the side of the trail. It wouldn't be the first time.
