HVWC Rides

Join us on a ride!

Seriously, join us! HVWC rides are all about getting more women on two wheels. If you’re new to biking, we have weekly women’s mountain biking and gravel rides for beginners, as well as a program called “Girls Rock!” for adolescents ages 10-13 interested in mountain biking. During rides, we share tips on how to handle your bike and the terrain in a fun and inviting atmosphere with lots of encouragement. Read more about all of our programs below.

  • No matter your current riding level, you will always have the option to go at your own speed and will never be left behind.

BEGINNER WOMEN’S MOUNTAIN BIKE RIDE

Want to learn how to ride through rock gardens and over logs? Check out our women’s beginner mountain bike ride on our calendar.

These rides may be physically challenging but are truly meant for beginner riders. We keep the group together and make stops to play and practice on log and rock crossings.

We plan to meet every Monday starting June 2024 to August 2024 at 6 pm. The meeting locations are posted here each week.

  • Please try to arrive 15 minutes early to allow us time to look at your bike and adjust your tire pressure.
  • Bring water and a well-maintained bike with at least front suspension. If you don’t have front suspension, please consider getting a demo bike from The Bicycle Shop.
