The NBR Women’s Ride program has been teaching women to mountain bike since 2002. Our goal is to help you gain the skills you need to enjoy trail riding. We are a well-established club that provides a great atmosphere of learning and fun.
Learn to Ride was created for women who want to get more comfortable in their riding abilities, and also for women to increase their bike handling skills. Are you thinking about enjoying the trails in Saskatoon or at the lake? Learn the skills and improve your fitness than can take to you your first event.
Starting Monday, May 1 until Monday, June 19, 2017 from 6:30-8:00. Mondays will be filled with the basics of climbing, descending, cornering, gearing, fitness and fun. All rides are coached by NCCP certified coaches and all you need is a freshly tuned-up mountain bike and helmet.
Pricing for this program is: $135 which includes $10 NBR membership fee, $40 for Saskatchewan Cycling Association membership fee, and $85 for the Women’s Ride fee). As an NBR member, you will also be able to come out to our other group rides on Tuesdays and Wednesdays as well as to our social events
