We are the first all-female mountain bike trade team in North America and are so pleased to be moving forward in this capacity! Once again we will be holding Women's Only Learn to Mountain Bike Clinics and will also be working on some fundraising at the National level. Look out for us in the May 2001 edition of Mountain Bike Magazine! We will also be hosting our own booth at the International Bike Show taking place in Toronto on March 2, 3 &4!
