Alison

President

Greetings Spin Sisters!!! What could better than meeting up with like-minded ladies to challenge yourself, improve your fitness, and breathe in that amazing mountain air? As President, I have the privilege of working with an incredibly talented group of women who volunteer countless hours to ensure that every member has an amazing riding season each year. Why do we do it??? Because we LOVE mountain biking and are committed to spreading the word and encouraging women of all levels to come and see what all the fuss is about. This year look for more members, more special events, more clinics and more opportunities to learn about your bike and how to make it work for you! See you on the trails….

Laura

Vice President

I love seeing women thrive in the sport of mountain biking. My intention is to do my part to encourage women in this sport to live healthy and active lifestyles on and off the bike.

Communication

My story is common - maybe it's yours too? Heading out to West Bragg with my husband, desperately trying to keep up, getting super frustrated in the process. After a few 'cry rides' (you know what I'm talking about), I found Spin Sisters. No drop rides, supportive and knowledgeable coaches in skills clinics, camaraderie every Monday night Scooter ride - I'm hooked! I love to see women challenge themselves, and gain confidence in the process - one rock, root and obstacle at a time!  Join us on Facebook and Instagram for all the latest news and views!

Clinics

Mountain biking can be a challenging sport. I love that Spin Sisters provides the environment and opportunity for women to build both skill and courage by riding together. Our clinics are an opportunity for newer riders to learn from skillful and courageous women with experience in the sport.

Ride Committee

The first time I came out on a Spin Sisters ride I met so many people who also loved to ride and have fun on the trails. Now I can’t wait to plan my summer around riding so that I can get together with so many amazing ladies. I have had so many enjoyable rides, adventures and laughs on the trails that it inspired me to volunteer to organize and plan all the fantastic rides and trips. I have the pleasure of working with a wonderful committee who love to work together to provide you with so many great experiences and rides throughout the year.

Emma

Mountain Maiden Race Director

I am responsible for organizing the most incredible XC race in all of Alberta (Note: I am a little biased here) with duties that include information wrangler, charmer, channelling my inner unicorn & pumping the stoke. Of course, this is race is a big deal & I can't do it alone so with the support of my fellow execs, Spin Sisters, and ALL the volunteers involved the Mountain Maiden comes together as one epic day each year.

Race Program

When I got into racing, it opened up the Pandora's box of thrill, adrenaline and excitement! A group of us formed within the club so we could do training events together, support each other, and maybe even find a race partner! Come join me on the Race Team! If you know what I'm talking about with joy and racing - we want you to join us! How fast you are is irrelevant.

Julia

Learn to Race

I signed up for the race team because my spin sisters inspired me to push myself beyond my comfort zone. But participating in my first race meant way more than just riding fast. Join Learn to Race to find out what racing will mean for you (....on and off your mountain bike)!

Gear & Clothing

I found Spin Sisters completely by accident, but it has changed my life! Biking is now an integral part of it - I find my happy on the trails, shredding the gnar...can you do that on a bike?...I've made some lifelong friends and I am loving the challenges I face every single time I get on my bike - being the best rider and Spin Sister I can possibly be!

I am responsible for procuring sweet Spin Sisters branded threads for club members to shred the trails in! In other words, I facilitate our relationship with our supplier to make sure we get the best looking jerseys and shorts out there!

Sponsorship

I have the pleasure of working with our fantastic  group of sponsors who donate cash & prizes, host clinics and special events, provide expertise and a variety of special offers to Spin Sisters. This is all done to advance the goals of the Spin Sisters club, support our members and encourage and support women in the sport of Mountain Biking.

Volunteer

I had no idea that signing up for Spin Sisters years ago would become such a large part of my life. It is a great organization and group of women. After reaping the benefits of organized rides, great clinics and an awesome race team for years I have decided it's time for me to give back to the club in a larger fashion. I organize volunteers who motivate others to get involved in the club. We are 100% volunteer based so without you we could not be successful. Contact me if you would like to get more involved!
