In case you didn’t know . . . the Muddbunnies Riding Club is a women’s riding club that started in 2005 in Vancouver. Last year, former Vancouver Muddbunny, Stephanie Dupont, moved to Rossland to open up a local chapter. Over the course of the 2018 season, there were 282 documented “butts on bikes” in the Rossland chapter, outstripping even the North Vancouver Club’s 201 documented riders. Clearly, the Rossland area is teeming with talented, eager, and energetic women riders.
For 2019, the membership is already at 101 members (up from 81 last season). The weekly Wednesday rides kicked off on May 1st and brought together 42 riders to enjoy the Bluffs-Sunningdale network. Although we’re based in Rossland, our members include women from the broader area, including Trail, Castlegar and Nelson. The skill level is equally broad; from our new novice group up to our shredding advanced group, there is definitely a ride that is suitable for you.
The focus of the rides – and the Muddbunnies credo – is to create a supportive environment for women to ride. We are not coaches; we are a community of role models that love to ride dirt and want to empower and encourage more women to join us. We are not the fastest, strongest, or even the most brave but we do have the most fun; and we want you to come join us.
Muddbunnies is a non-profit organization. The $38 member fee covers our insurance for our ride leads and sweeps, along with minor administrative and technical support services.
