KILLINGTON, Vt. – Killington Resort announced the return of Killington Divas of Dirt, an initiative led by Pro Downhill/Enduro Racer Amy Alton and the Killington Bike Park, to foster the community of passionate female mountain bikers.
“I continue to be astounded by Killington’s passionate community of women mountain bikers and am delighted to be partnering again with Killington Resort in support of the Divas of Dirt. Our community values a personal riding experience that supports and encourages one another. The Divas of Dirt hosted women from across the region as well as out of state and the country in our first two seasons and I look forward to another great season being a part of such a fun and fierce community.”
Female mountain bikers of all ability levels are welcome to share their passion for the sport and make new connections at the bi-weekly Friday night group rides and happy hours.
“Our first two years proved successful with many female riders of all ability levels enjoying the Friday bi-weekly rides and post-ride happy hour. We welcomed total beginners, cross country riders looking to sharpen descending skills, and advanced rippers looking to explore new terrain over at Ramshead,” says Alton. “This year we are expanding and I am reaching out to some other fun Pros in the region to lead rides. This will allow groups to split and reach more terrain including Killington Peak.”
Every other Friday beginning July 13, from 4 to 6 p.m., the Killington Divas of Dirt encourage female riders to join a hosted group ride, exploring the trails throughout Killington Bike Park. The evening includes bike safety checks, plus discounted bike park lift tickets and rental bikes. Participation is free with your own bike and a valid bike park ticket or pass.
After the Killington Bike Park closes, the Killington Divas of Dirt enjoy happy hour at the Snowshed Umbrella Bar. For more information on Killington Divas of Dirt events, email Amy Alton at email@example.com or call the Killington Bike Shop at 802-422-6232.
