Ladies Social Mountain Bike Rides

We are excited to announce that Kirsty from our Fountain Gate store will be running three upcoming ladies social mountain bike rides at Lysterfield Lake Park throughout July and August. Here’s a few words from Kirsty about the rides:

Have you been wanting to try out mountain biking but always felt a little overwhelmed by the prospect? Or been riding for some time and just looking for a friendly crew of fellow women to ride with? Well, if you own a mountain bike and a helmet, come along and join me for a cruisey ride around Lysterfield Lake Park. We’ll be riding single track but keeping to an easy and moderate trails for roughly 1-2 hours depending on skill levels and stops.

A bit about me..

I grew up riding bikes to school but only really tried mountain biking after being encouraged to venture out with my dad and brother in my late 20's. I fell in love with it straight away and not long after upgrading my bike started some club racing and 24hr team events in and around Canberra where I lived. I moved to Melbourne 2 years ago and have loved exploring all the areas you can ride in and around this beautiful city. Although I no longer race competitively, my love of the sport will never fade and encouraging other chicks is an added joy!

My goal and desire in running these social rides is to see more women introduced to this sport, to help them feel confident and comfortable on their bike and connect with other like-minded women.

If you have any questions please contact:

Looking forward to meeting you all and having some fun on the bike!
