Thank you to everyone who took the time to fill out the women’s riding survey conducted by Australian Mountain Bike Clinics as part of the research process for creating the newly launched women’s development program. The survey results (and a discussion of) are available here: Chix Survey Analysis
I find I live and breathe mountain biking so much these days that it’s sometimes hard to step back and know what it’s like for other ladies just starting out in the sport. I found it really interesting to read about the barriers preventing more women from becoming involved, and to hear about the demand for a community of like minded people to just, sort of, be there for other women to be part of. Hopefully the new women’s development program ideas are a positive step toward creating this!
