It seems the winter just got started, but with the change of the clocks it's time to start preparing for the summer mountain biking season! This includes things like taking your bike in for its spring tune-up, doing an inventory on your emergency repair kit, and maybe shopping for a new helmet -- yes, you should replace your helmet after about 3-4 years or one bad hit.
This is also time to renew or join us on the meetup site and to start marking your calendars for the upcoming rides. We will still be biking each Wednesday evening and suggest that you also use the meetup site to invite people on informal rides. Isn't that why we join -- to have other women to ride with any day of the week!?
The season kicks off with our annual Meet and Greet at 7pm on April 17 at Paramount Cycles (1320 Huffman Park Drive) where you will meet the organizers, learn a bit about us, and sign up to lead rides. We will have Diva-branded goodies for you to purchase, and...
There will be prizes!
The schedule is now posted on this site, but there could be some small changes so check the Meetup site for final details. We look forward to seeing you on April 17!

Beautiful weather brought out a large group of Divas, anxious to ride at Kincaid!
Nancy's group had a fantastic time riding Middle Earth!
Kersten rides over the boards onto Northwest Passage, a super fun descent all the way down to the Coastal Trail.
Gess glides over the boards.
Nancy also rode the boards into the fun that is Northwest Passage!

Rain, rain, go away, but it didn't! And 5 water-resistant Divas showed up to ride! Nancy led the way over to a soggy Boling Alley. We splashed through puddle after puddle after puddle, and ran into a moose with a calf. She was stubborn, so we retreated, hit Sandbox to Kitchen Sink to Tower Power and back to Boling Alley. But the moose and baby found us there, too! So, we wound our way back on the ski trails.
By the end of the ride, we were soaked and muddy, but what a fun ride!

More perfect weather greeted us at Mirror Lake where the trails were in perfect condition for a fabulous ride. Two loops make up 3 miles of ups and downs - at times very challenging! We did several loops, both directions, and had a great workout!
Maggi let out a whoop whoop as she rounds a corner.
JoAnn concentrated on making a curve after a steep climb.
Gloria was enjoying the ride!
Gloria and JoAnn show off their Diva shirts next to the matching Diva logo on the post.
Rose and Nancy took a moment to point out the post!
It was a warm and beautiful night for a ride on the Hillside STA single-track trails. We divided into a couple of groups and headed out.
