Formed in 2004, Spin Sisters Mountain Biking Club (SSMBC) is a progressive women’s only mountain biking club in the Calgary region that brings together riders of all ages and abilities to enjoy the sport.
Our mandate is to get more women into the sport of mountain biking where they can learn and improve skills in a non‐intimidating environment.
SSMBC inspires a world where no woman fears rocks or drops, by bringing women of all abilities together for super-duper wicked riding in an environment of camaraderie and support whilst building leaders, and being a positive force in the community.
The 2013 Season
We're pretty excited to kick off the new season! Spin Sisters does a lot of fabulous things: for our members, for the community, and for the sport.
Here's what we've got planned for the upcoming year:
We schedule weekly rides for all skill levels from beginner to advanced riders. We organize ride leaders for all rides and ride levels.

>Community InvolvementBikes Without Borders
In 2012 we purchased 3 bike ambulances for Bikes Without Borders through direct donations from our members and sales of Bikes Without Borders hoodies and t-shirts. We will be continuing this initiative in 2013.

We are proud to be associated with the Calgary Mountain Bike Alliance (CMBA), a local group working to promote sustainable trails in the Calgary area. Spin Sisters have put in hundreds of accumulated hours of loving attention into singletrack trails in Fish Creek Park, Bowmont Park and the Ridgeback and S.H.A.F.T. trails in K-Country.
