International Women's MTB Day

It might be a little early to think about riding mountain bike trails, but we can always hope that things will be firm in a couple weeks! We are hoping to host a women's mountain bike ride on Saturday, May 5th in celebration of International Women's Mountain Bike Day

No, you are not wrong in believing that you have never heard of this day before. It's new! IMBA has had great success with their Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day, and this is a spin-off of that. The goal is simple- "Local organizations and individuals are encouraged to use the day as a driver for grassroots engagement, festivals, rides, awareness campaigns and other activities to both celebrate and encourage women mountain biking."

Fearless Women of Dirt is partnering up with Decorah Bicycles and will be offering free, demo mountain bikes for use during the ride. This will be an awesome opportunity for women to try out a new style of bike, say plus-sized wheels or full suspension. The ride will be led by Fearless Women of Dirt Ambassador, Kim.

If you are in need of a bike, please send an email to or call Decorah Bicycles during business hours. There are limited numbers of demo mountain bikes available.
The ride will leave the Decorah Bicycles parking lot at 10 a.m. but due to the setup of the demo bikes, it is ideal that you show up by 9:30 a.m. to ensure there is enough time to get things ready so you can have an enjoyable experience.

Check out the event on Facebook and be sure to select "Going" if you are planning to attend!
