Women's Weekly Wednesday Mountain Bike Ride


Cancelled for rain. :-(


Mountain Biking

Distance - 6–12 miles

General Information

Every Wednesday evening this summer, Cheryl and Katherine are hosting a weekly ride for women who want to learn how to mountain bike, want to get better at mountain biking, want to explore new trails, want to practice for mountain bike races, or just want to ride with other women.

All skill levels are encouraged to come ride! You just need a mountain bike, a helmet, and a desire to have fun. Beginner through expert, we will break into multiple groups as appropriate.

We will make sure no one gets lost and everyone has support to try new things, and we’ll offer tips and instruction along the way.

We plan to meet at a variety of local (DSM area) trails to get lots of experience. Keep checking Facebook and the "Information Specific to this Date" section below for updates. Locations may change due to weather and trail conditions.


  • #16 – July 16: Ewing Park
  • #17 – July 23: Ewing Park
  • #18 – July 30: Center Trails: Denman Woods
  • #19 – August 6: Center Trails: Denman Woods
  • #20 – August 13: Sycamore Trail
  • #21 – August 20: Sycamore Trail

  • #23 – September 3: Center Trails: Hillside & Roller Coaster

… and so on

Note: The next Iowa mountain bike race is Sunday, August 17 at George Wyth State Park in Waterloo. The trail is comparable to Denman Woods and Sycamore Trail. The race has options for beginner, sport, and expert level riders. We encourage you to try it.
