PODCAST: Shore Sirens - Empowering Progress on the North Shore

When Jessie issued a call to go riding on a Facebook group this past May, she didn't anticipate receiving responses from around 70 people, especially but that's what happened. Since then, Shore Sirens' Discord server has grown to over 200 people.

After a few smaller group rides, the Shore Sirens formed—a biking community for women and their allies, dedicated to pushing the boundaries of off-road cycling. Their mission is to bridge the gap for intermediate to advanced riders seeking a welcoming community.

In a short period, they've accomplished quite a lot, organising remarkable events such as the recent Queer+ Allies MTB Ride, inviting everyone identifying as 2SLGTBQIA+ which was a significant milestone for mountain biking in British Columbia. They've also collaborated with local trail organisations to contribute to the maintenance of the trails they ride, along with the bonus of introducing North Point Brewing's Shore Sirens Lager.


The Shore Sirens are valuable contributors for advancing the sport in the North Shore mountains we all cherish, we can't wait to see where they go from here.
