Fancy trying enduro or DH this year? Image copyright Torks photography via Diva Descent

Whether you like lung-busting cross-country, white knuckle down hill, the ups and downs of gravity enduro or a long ride with like-minded women, there is an event out there for you – and usually more than one!

So why do an event? It can give you motivation to train or push your skills, it’s a fun day out, it’s the chance to meet other likeminded women, it’ll give you the opportunity to ride somewhere different and new, the list goes on.

The added joy of joining an organised event is that everything is set up for you; you don’t need to worry about your route, you’ve just got to get yourself and your bike around the course. There’s usually an event village packed with info, support, mechanical assistance, not to mention the odd shop and plenty of eating opportunities.

If you fancy a women’s only event, check out Stilettos on Wheels, Daisy Chain and Diva Descent for starters.
