Steed Pretty and Gritty Ladies MTB Ride Group



What Is Pretty and Gritty?

A ride club for women who are already comfortable on their mountain bikes and looking for a solid crew of girls to ride with.

Who should come ride with Us?

You don’t mind suffering on the climbs, want to get faster on the descents, and need a little inspiration to ride that which scares you. Pretty and Gritty is a ride club for intermediate to advanced level riders who are looking to progress their skills and fitness. Riders should be comfortable riding trails like Expresso (don’t have to clean it but can ride most features), and should be comfortable riding distances of 20-25 km on trail without feeling crushed.
