Women´s Wednesdays !
Women´s Wednesday mountain bike rides is a women to women concept. Riding a bike is somewhat masculine sport and it should not be, on Women´s Wednesday women learn from women and encourage each other.
The rides are only for women, women aged 18 and more (minors with parental written consent) - rides and practical tips how to feel more comfortable riding and feel more secure tackling obstacles. Guidance from an elite athlete and UCI licenced coach Maaris Meier.
The most important is to acknowledge your level and choose your level type, too advance can be dangerous and too easy can be boring.
Four different riding levels, be alert while checking the calendar for time, local and skill level!
Beginner level – covering the basics of mountain bike riding, position on the bike, tips on equipment, for newbies who haven’t practiced mountain biking or start again after a long period of time.
Intermediate level – for ladies who already ride in the forest, more use to flat path, so we learn to corner, concur some rooty and rocky trails, but nothing extreme, also learning the basics of getting some air time.
Advanced level – ladies who feel already quite comfortable riding single tracks and steep up and down hills, can cover some airtime, the objective is to take it even faster and flow down the hill, learn to see different lines.
Pro level – as the name says, riding fast and furious like pro ladies like. While pushing each other the learning process is inevitable, sharing tips and advice.
Remember Wednesday is for Women, from 18.00-19.30 (winter time Saturday 16-17.30 due to daylight) meeting point Jardim do Luso, group size is limited up to 5 riders, to have more quality and individual feedback in the sessions.
Always available to have one-on-one sessions with personal coach and feedback to get the most quality out of learning technical riding and overall knowledge to become better on the bike.
