    Default Ladies MTB Spins

    The ladies in Epic MTB are running a series of mtb spins for ladies only.
    The purpose of these spins is to get more women interested in the sport, not specifically racing.
    It gives new comers to the sport the chance to get to meet some ladies of similar abilities, get to know a few friendly faces and also get familiar with a lot of trails hidden away in the Dublin mountains!

    You don't have to be a member of a club to come along. You also don't have to be a pro on the bike! It is for all abilities.
    We are planning to run these spins for four Saturday mornings in different locations around Dublin and Wicklow. The trails we will cover will be cross country trails with nothing too technical or dangerous, we want to show you the fun side of mountain biking in an easy going atmosphere.

    All this is free of charge of course!

    You will need
    A mountain bike in good working order
    A spare tube and a small pump
    Some food - jellies, cereal bar, banana etc
    A drink
    Some appropriate clothes - no cotton t-shirts or tracksuit bottoms (incase it starts to rain) and a rain coat (also for if it starts to rain)
    obviously helmets are compulsary!

    The first of this series of spins will take place at Djouce Woods on 11 Aug at 10 am. That means everyone is on their bike and ready to go at 10 am sharp.

    If you or any of your friends/ sisters/ wives or girlfriends are interested please let us know.
    Leave a reply or else contact us at the following email to let us know you will be there
    carolinem_86@hotmail.com

    Thanks : )

    Nice one Caroline, all the epic ladies will be on this. We've had mixed success with these in the past but they're always worth running to get a new Jacki or Erica into the sport!
    That's Princess Shona to you!

    Cool ladies mtb spins

    Hi would really love to come on the 11th August but unfortunatley I shall be only back from holidays. Is there another date being organized?? Well done to Aine, Caroline and Erica at the XC Nationals on Sunday 22/08/12 at Djouce Woods. I was truly blown away by the sheer satisfaction of all who took part. Ohh... and well done to the men aswell.

    Hi there,

    I recently purchased a bike which can be used for MTB as I wanted to try out the sport so I would be interested in attending the Spin on the 11 August

    What a great idea. Is it open to prospective Epic members only or can other club-affiliated ladies head along too?

    Hi Claire

    The spins arent for prospective memebers they are for anyone as long as there are female! You are more than welcome to come along. Its mainly aimed at entry level riders but we could do with any help. Hopefully we will get a few new women along.
