Don’t forget the up coming women’s mtb ridea at Llandegla, North Wales on 22nd and 29th April 2006. As usual Lucy at NWMBA will be arranging rides for women, check out the www.nwmba.org.uk website for details. There will be two rides, pitched at novice and intermediate level.
Here’s a snippet of what NWMBA say about the women’s rides…..
“The novice ride is aimed at those new to the sport maybe lacking confidence in their skills and the purpose is an introduction to the technology and skills needed to sucessfully ride off road using the novice mtb trails in the forest. Led by Lucy or Jane, help and information will be available before during and after the ride on bike set up, you will learn simple skills in off-road riding from the guides as well as the opportunity to seek advice from the centre mechanics. It is hoped after a few rides you will be able to confidently progress to the intermediate ride although you may come and ride as many novice rides as you like if you prefer the pace.
The intermediate ride is aimed at riders with some skill proficiency riding on uneven surfaces as well as a reasonable level of fitness. Although mostly based on the trails around the forest, opportunity will also be given to venture out of the forest onto the local bridleways and tracks to develope rider skill confidence and trail knowledge to get the best out of your bike and your time.”
For expert riders wanting riding partners, you can always join the women friendly NWMBA club, which run regular rides and welcome women riders, or pop along to the sessions in April and see if you find some like-minded gals to ride with. We doubt you’ll be disappointed!
