Go GIRL – Get Into Riding Ladies

Introducing Go G.I.R.L. (Get Into Riding Ladies).

We are a supportive group of ladies that like to ride and socialise together. We usually ride on the 3rd Saturday of the month. Some rides are specifically targeted for women to improve their skills and most are for the pure enjoyment of this awesome sport. All rides have clearly stated levels and you can check our calendar for more details. Every rider requires MTBA insurance to ride with us (MTBA has a free 8 week insurance offer for new members – we can help you with this).

It has been a busy year to date with over 30 ladies taking advantage of coaching funded by grants obtained by the Bushrangers. The ladies were very happy with the personalised coaching from Geoff Foxx from HitBikes. We are looking forward to rolling out stage 2 beginning soon.

Bushrangers also funded some members to complete their level one MTBA coaching certificates as well as a first aid and resuscitation course. I was able to put these new skills to use in the recent G.O.G.A. (Get Out Get Active) beginners mountain biking skills course, which was at Caloundra council initiative and ran for 6 weeks.

To support the new GOGA graduates we began a #adoptanewbie program that was very successful. Experienced mentors organised regular get together rides to reinforce essential skills and build fitness. These ladies are now ready to join us on our longer rides.

Our Facebook page is where we keep connected so join us today. You’ll be able to find other like minded ladies to ride with and sometimes we get together socially too.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.

Hope to see you on the trails!
