WOMEN ON WHEELS YEG IS A MOUNTAIN BIKE CLUB FOR WOMEN OF ALL EXPERIENCE LEVELS.
Our goal is to encourage more women to ride and offer a social and encouraging environment with a focus on skill development and instructional trail rides. We ride together (always – no one is left behind) and will spend time on a trail section coaching how to ride it properly and safely.
Our main sponsor is Revolution Cycle (Revo) with event space, in-store discounts plus more. Specialized Canada continues to offer support through social media, custom jersey and water bottle designs. SMITH Optics and Finish Line Lube via Outdoor Gear Canada are new this year with product discount and swag, respectively.
We also believe in supporting other Edmonton women’s only cycling groups including: SheShreds – Women’s Mountain Biking, Cranky’s Women’s Rides, Women of ERTC, Bell Joy Ride, and YEG Road Girls (just to name a few).
Six years ago, we started out with one ride a week for a handful of beginner riders. Now we offer skills development and instructional trail rides for both beginner and intermediate riders. We’ve also added skills clinics and some seriously fun events.
We have been riding or active within the cycling community for 30+ years combined. With no sign of stopping anytime soon!
