The Sisters of Send isn’t about us; it’s about you!
There have never been so many women shredding the trails, and we want to help keep that momentum going. As a collective, we aim to host riding events that will inspire, encourage and nurture the women’s mountain bike movement.
It’s not about being the fittest, fastest or most stylish; we certainly aren’t! It’s about being outdoors on our bikes, meeting like-minded people and having so much fun, it should be illegal (but we’re glad it’s not).
Got an idea? Want to help out? Perhaps you just fancy saying “hello”, whatever it is, we welcome your messages so drop us one using the contact form.
