Description

Weekly social mountain bike rides for all levels and abilities. Rides start at local trailheads and the rides are led by trained BMA volunteer Ride Guides and Sweeps. RGs and the sweeps provide guidance, wayfaring and safety services to riders. Riders don't have to be BMA members. Ride Guides provide a valuable public relations service for BMA through messaging and exhibiting model behavior. BMA features one weekly ride that is completely women--riders, ride guides and sweeps--for beginners to advanced female riders.
