Why Become a Member?

Dirt Side Sisters wants to help you grow in skill and confidence on your bike! Our community of passionate women are here to support you and freely provide you with the knowledge you need to improve your riding.

We are deeply rooted in teaching and guiding women like you through your mountain biking journey! Be a part of our mission to #getmorewomenriding!  

All funds will directly support our Dirt Side Sisters organization in the means of event insurance, administrative fees, business expenses, maintaining our membership website, borrow-a-bike program, equipment for trail obstacles, snacks and drinks for events, and any other essentials that will help us keep the fun going and your wheels rolling!

WhIch days/months do we ride as a group?

Typically our DSS group ride season goes from daylight savings till daylight savings, which is mid March to the beginning of November. We also take two months off during the hottest Summer months, July and August. 

During the months of March, April, May, June, September, and October DSS hosts one Wednesday evening ride per month and one Saturday morning ride per month. Rides are open to all women with an active Dirt Side Sisters membership.

In addition to our member rides, we also have one leadership ride each month for our volunteer Support Crew and Ambassadors...perks of the position! This helps our team continue to grow together in confidence and keep the fun factor high for our entire organization. Spending this time together allows us to pass on our own individual knowledge to each other so that we can reach far more women than a single person alone.

What is New Member Orientation?

We require anyone who has never ridden with Dirt Side Sisters to start here for your first ride. This course is open to ALL SKILL LEVELS. This session will help you make the most out of your next group ride experience! Our ride leaders use several different words (that you may have never heard of or used before) to coach you through the trail. This helps keep everyone safe and the ride flowing smooth. During orientation we will teach, demonstrate, and practice:

    • DSS Mountain Bike Terminology
    • Trail Etiquette
    • How to check your A,B,C’s before each ride.
    • How to maintain a strong and stable body position while riding.
    • How to use your brakes properly.
    • How to get the most out of your gears for smooth and efficient riding.

    WHICH MEMBERSHIP IS RIGHT FOR ME?

    We understand that although we share a common interest and passion to #getmorewomenriding not everyone has an interest in racing. Our goal is to provide support to both women who are riding for fitness and fun as well as those who wish to participate in a racing atmosphere. For this reason we have created our DSS Racing Team simply to provide a separate channel of communication and help the conversations in each forum be more specific to the audience.

    Dirt Side Sisters is all about teaching and helping women make the most out of their mountain biking experience! How does all that apply to racing??? Because racing is FUN!!!

Racing creates such a unique environment with both family and friends. The energy filled atmosphere, amazing support, and camaraderie are nearly impossible to duplicate! 

    Dirt Side Sisters Racing is a community of women who thrives from positive relationships. We are all about carpooling together, encouraging one another, and celebrating each others successes at the end, whether your goal is to simply make it across the finish line, complete your first race, or stand on the podium! 

    Dirt Side Sisters is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization. Our mission is to create a gateway to #getmorewomenriding mountain bikes confidently by increasing their skills and building community around them
