Women’s Dirt Days are a monthly series of group mountain bike rides held at local Chicagoland and nearby Wisconsin trails throughout the summer months. It’s a perfect event for women of all skill levels to meet up, enjoy friendly, non-competitive rides and get some time on the trail. These dirt days are specifically for women to encourage, promote, and rally the female dirtbag contingent by providing an opportunity to learn mountain biking skills in a group ride setting. Attention is given to skills, trail advice, and even racing talk.

Rides begin promptly at posted time (usually 9:00 or 9:30AM CT), and we ride rain or shine. Get there a little early to get settled. If the weather is nice, bring a lunch and we’ll picnic after. Need a ride? Need a bike? Post up with your RSVP!
