Durango Dirt Divas
“Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to
emancipate women than anything else in the world. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel.”
― Susan B. Anthony
Welcome to the Durango Dirt Divas home page. We are an extension of our ladies in the Denver/Golden/Front Range area. We are located in beautiful Durango, Colorado and we also are crazy in love with riding DIRT! And Rocks! And anything singletrack on our mountain bikes!
You are invited to join us on our weekly rides. Tuesday is our evening for riding the trails. Our goal is to provide a non-threatening environment for women of all skill levels to learn the joy of mountain biking. As a growing community of riders, we offer encouragement, fun, local rides, opportunities to race and skill development plus an opportunity to give back to the community through trail advocacy. We team up with our Front Range group for our Destination Rides. We call ourselves the “Dirt Divas — soft skin, hard core”.
Be sure to JOIN us every Tuesday evening at 5:30 for our Social mountain bike rides. Our weekly rides are for all levels of riders from beginner to pro. For our social mountain bike rides, we will meet at different trailheads around the Durango area for our mountain bike fun. Not only will you learn about the trails, but you will have a chance to participate in our skills clinics. We meet at 5:30 pm and ride til dark. ALL LEVELS AND ABILITIES ARE WELCOME. We have a no drop policy — NO ONE gets left behind! Please note that if you have never ridden on singletrack before, we highly encourage you to take our skills clinic before riding with the group. We cannot teach you HOW to ride.
In the fall, we change our ride days to WEEKENDS to accommodate our need for daylight.
This is what you will need to ride with us:
- Bike in WORKING condition
- Bring extra tube, pump, tire levers
- Have proper clothing for time of year (includes a wind/rain jkt)
- Have plenty of water, energy bars/gels
- HELMET required
- Bring a light when we do our Night Rides!
- Waiver required if you are not a paid member of the Dirt Divas. Please download and print the waiver from the Member Forms tab and bring with you to the ride.
- AND most importantly, bring a SMILE!
Are you ready? Ok, LET’S RIDE!!
