Just in case there are fathers of daughters interested in learning about mountain biking, or women who are curious to learn or up their game, read on about an event at Massanutten on Sept. 16.

SheJumps has organized a full day event, 9:00-4:00, for Saturday, Sept. 16.  Starts with a 75-min lesson, with rental bike and related gear, and lift ticket good until 2:00pm.  Massanutten has lift-served trails at all ability levels.  People can use their own mountain bike if they like.  Best to get tickets in advanced.  Rental bikes will probably sell out.

The day will start with a 75 minute lesson on the lower trails with professional instruction by the bike school, followed by a free-ride session. After lunch there will be a guided group ride on the advanced upper trails (based on ability), or more free riding down low for those who would like more practice. When our lift tickets expire at 2pm, we’ll gather at Base Camp on the lodge deck to enjoy some food and fellowship while rehydrating. There will also be a raffle of women’s specific mountain bike clothing and outdoor gear to support future SheJumps programming!

Had a good time yesterday at the SheJumps Mountain Bike event.  Certainly helps to get instruction the first time.  One instructor is on Mnut ski patrol, the other is a snowboard instructor.  They spent far more time with us than was required.  Riding extended until 3:00 after a short snack break at lunch time.  Massanutten was a great host.

There is a Women’s Bike Weekend at Mnut Sept. 30-Oct. 1.  Instructors will be professional female bikers.  I have no doubt it will be a great experience for intermediate and advanced riders.
