Ride Descriptions

Knobby Wednesday

Level: Beginner
Meets: Every Wednesday at 6:00 p.m.

Join the fun on mountain bikes! These entry-level rides for beginner riders will give you a chance to practice your skills, have fun, and be safe riding trails. Before each ride we will review fundamental tips about riding, then we will head out on an entry-level trail ride. This is a family-friendly ride with two Ride Guides so nobody will get left behind.

Gurlz Ride

Level: All levels welcome. Sorry guys… ladies only.
Meets: Every Tuesday at 6:00 p.m.

Ladies, come on out for our fun rides and post-ride get-togethers! We love to ride and enjoy meeting other women who do too. We also support each other as we progress in our bike skills. At the trailhead, we split into two groups: beginner and intermediate/advanced. Our beginner ride has a sweep so you won’t get dropped. Join us!

Trails & Ale

Level: Intermediate to advanced
Meets: Every Thursday at 6:00 p.m.

This intermediate/advanced level ride is a great mid-week tonic. Ride at your own pace and we’ll regroup at intersections. We finish every ride by gathering at a local establishment for food and good cheer. Explore trails that are new to you and find a new riding buddy or two. Join the fun!

Inclusion Rides

Level: All levels welcome.
BIPOC: 2nd Wednesday of the month at 6 p.m.

BiciFiesta: 3rd Monday of the month at 6 p.m.
Teens: 4th Friday of the month at 6 p.m.

BMA is dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion in our community. We’ve added these rides to create a safe space for riders that are underrepresented in Boulder, led by Ride Guides of these communities. Who is welcome? Anyone who identifies as a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of color), Latinx, teens and their allies.
