Women's Skills Sessions
Our club run women's skills sessions are continuing to build momentum. Jo has put on two sessions now and is really pleased with how they have been received so far.
‘It is clear everyone has enjoyed being out with other women and evidently feel confident enough to challenge themselves within this supportive small group environment’
The sessions are currently aimed at beginner to intermediate levels. Within the sessions Jo has touched on a range of fundamental skills; riding positions - climbing and descending, braking, cornering and maintenance of general flow when riding. The sessions have been conducted on our local Spring Gully Trail Network, using sections of trail that are all easily located.
If you are interested in taking part in any of the above sessions please get in touch with Jo at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
Bendigo MTB Women's Challenge
We think this is a great way for women to enjoy a more social and fun focused event with a particular emphasis on participation rather than competition. Stay tuned for more information regarding this event.
