WomenMTB is a Utah based organization whose mission is to empower women, youth and community through mountain biking by creating an environment of acceptance, encouragement, growth, and education. 

Our Purpose:

The purpose of our programs is to create a welcoming environment for both women* and youth in the mountain biking community. Building on the momentum we have had for the past five seasons, we will continue to engage with women and youth riders through our weekly group rides, skills clinics, mechanical clinics, trail dig days and events. Whether WomenMTB riders are club member or not, they get access to an authentic community of riders that believes in supporting one another and in being a mentor for the next generation. WomenMTB also offers  a women’s-only Midweek Women’s Mini-Enduro race (bringing over 100 women (many of them first-time racers) to the event to compete each time! We also offer race categories that range from Pro/Expert to NICA to youth.  

 *Please note that when we use the adjective “women,” our intent is to be gender-inclusive just as we are in our shops and on the trail

"We believe that women, and especially young girls, want to feel like they fit in and belong. The cycling industry has had a long history of creating barriers for women and we think that women-led organizations such as WomenMTB have the power to break through those barriers." - Angela Write, President of the Board


 

 

Our Community: 

We feel that if we start building confidence in women, that naturally transfers to their offspring. When we add opportunities to ride together and take skills clinics for a broad range of riders, we see confidence spike, dreams being fulfilled and those reaching their greatest potential.  

A positive social network and bits of success are the equation.  When women experience success in one area, we realize our power and can transfer that to another area.  

WomenMTB provides opportunities to build the community trough service, donations and program development.
