The Pine Mountain Sports Dirt Divas Mountain Biking Program
Dirt Divas events cover the gamut of mountain biking with a variety of free monthly events. These happenings include presentations from women throughout the industry at the Dirt Divas Nights, twice a month organized group rides, skills clinics, and bike repair and maintenance events.
Trying out a sport like mountain biking for the first time can be really intimidating in such an athletic city like Bend. This is what really makes the Dirt Divas Mountain Biking Program such an asset to newer riders. We leverage the talent, experience and resources available to us in Bend and deliver it in an approachable way for someone who is just starting out.
Our Dirt Divas Mountain Biking Program is comprised of three different parts: You can choose to participate in all of the events or pick and choose what is best for you.
