  • Mountain biking has started to become your "thing"
  • You are comfortable riding the flatter or even bumpier blue/green rated trails but would like to see what some more technical (roots, rocks and steep stuff) blue or even black terrain looks like (just to clarify, that doesn’t mean I have to ride it right?) 
  • You have taken a mountain bike skills course before or you have many seasons of riding under your belt and a good knowledge of the fundamental skills
  • You are comfortable with operating your controls (one finger braking, smooth shifting most of the time), body position and balance, (flat feet, bum out your seat!)
  • You make great line/trail choices and ride within your limits (you just want to expand that limit in a safe and supervised environment) 
  • You want to go faster on the flats, not feel like you are having a heart attack on the hills and are willing to put in a couple of rides a week to progress your fitness and skills 
  • You are comfortable on roll downs and could be convinced to start getting ready for some small jumps and drops

  • 10 hours of safe, supervised single track training under your belt
  • Some more confidence and exposure to riding sections of trail and trails you said to yourself that “You would be NEVER be able to ride” 
  • More flexibility range of motion in your body position on the bike 
  • Better braking control at higher speeds 
  • Better ability to anticipate changes in terrain, to gaze a bit further down the trail and shift smoothly and often
  • More comfortable compressing your suspension to get over small (a couple inches high) obstacles
  • Even more expert tips on bike mechanical skills, mapping, emergency skills, tricks on how and where to ride (now faster and with more skills) with your kids, how to fuel/hydrate/pack for your rides, how to meet other like minded ladies (outside of the rad girls you will meet in the group that are in the same boat as you!) 
  • Those steep, daunting downhills are not nearly as scary and you might try them on your own sometime soon
  • You know what “mechanical skills” means and you actually have some! 
  • You may overcome your your overwhelming fear of what it takes to hit some small jumps and drops
