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 to take you to your first event.
Starting Mondays early May, Ending in June 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: $145 which includes $10 NBR membership fee, $50 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.

Weather and Air Quality:
In the event that it’s been raining during the day the trails may not be conducive to riding, so it will be a pavement ride instead. The meetup may still happen but if it’s raining at ride time, there may be very few other riders.
We will make every attempt to cancel rides by 3:30PM, however, weather doesn’t always cooperate and rides may be cancelled right up until the event start time”. Please use the following weather guidelines to help you determine if our rides are a go. If the air quality indicated below is in the red, all rides will be cancelled for the day, any riders wishing to still meet up, are doing so outside of our organized club activity.
