Boulder DIVAS Cycling is a Boulder, Colorado club for athletic women who share a passion for cycling. The club provides a fun, supportive, and social environment for riding together, meeting new people, and doing more on your bike. While diverse in age, interests, and abilities, we share a love of adventure and challenge. We support improving bike skills and participating in all types of cycling. We believe in the friendships fostered on two wheels.
While cycling is what brings us together the most, we do much more than just ride our bikes. We have regular social gatherings and host a variety of clinics ranging from bike maintenance to bike handling skills. We also do out of town biking trips, and many of our rides end with a social event or meal together. One of our most popular events is our annual Spring Training Camp. It’s a great time to catch up with old friends and meet new ones over a long weekend in the spring. We also have an end of the year party every fall.
What are DIVA’s rides like?
Boulder DIVAS cycling supports a wide range of strong riders, with many different goals, including racing, fitness, triathlon, ultra-distance, recreation, touring, and social. While many of our programs focus on road cycling, that’s not all we do. Many DIVAS also love mountain biking and cross. Most of all, we love to challenge ourselves.
Our rides average at least 15 mph and are usually at least 30 miles long. Rides can often be faster, longer, and involve climbing. Rides may be shorter, flatter, and slower in winter and early spring.
Our club rides and social events help DIVAS find other members with similar interests and abilities.
Am I fast enough for the DIVAS? Will I get dropped?
Our spring and fall club rides are social and non-competitive. We regroup periodically and don’t abandon anyone on the road. The pace and goals of our more informal “shout out” rides, organized by members, are set by the ride leader. If you find yourself mismatched with a group, we’ll talk.
If you’d like to check us out before joining, contact email@example.com and we can let you know when our upcoming rides are scheduled.
While some of us are speedy and others go long, DIVAS in general are experienced cyclists in fairly good condition, and we are self-reliant. If you are just starting out in cycling, you might check out the Venus Bike Club in Boulder. They are supportive of new riders and have no-drop rides.
Can I try riding with the DIVAS before I join?
Absolutely! First please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be connected to our membership director, who will be able to assess whether we will be a good match for each other.
You are welcome to try out any of our rides, except for the Wednesday evening Fast n Fun, and the clinics we run. These are a special perk for members only. You are welcome to ride up to three rides with us, but after that if you are enjoying the rides and the members, we ask that you please join the club.
Rides are led by several DIVAS and all intermediate and advanced women cyclists are welcome. This is an opportunity for you to meet the DIVAS, have your questions answered and have some fun. Come ride with us. Questions? Contact Kay at boulderdivascycling.@gmail.com.
