About the Club – Our Mission Statement:
outdoor DIVAS cycling, located in Boulder, Colorado, is dedicated to supporting women who have a passion for bicycling. The club specifically focuses on providing a social, supportive and inspiring environment to athletic women who are driven and have ambition to do more on their bikes. We support our fellow members with their goals, including racing, improving cycling skills and participating in all types of cycling events. We give back to our community and work to foster supportive relationships with other clubs and teams in the Boulder, Colorado area.
- Do you love to ride but usually end up going solo?
- Would you like to have a great group of women to ride with and challenge you to go faster, farther?
- Have you thought about trying a race or that multi-day cycling tour, but don’t have experienced friends that can train with you or tell you what it will be like?\
- If you’ve answered yes to the above, we would love to hear from you!
While the club members comprise a broad range of abilities, interests and goals, generally speaking, we are experienced riders. But what does “experienced” mean – especially in Boulder? For us, that means being familiar with your equipment, are comfortable clipping in and out of your pedals, and enjoy rides of at least 20 – 30 miles at an average speed usually above 15 mph (unless we’re climbing to Ward, that is). We generally ride in groups and, when on the road, in a paceline. If you’ve not done paceline riding, we’re more than happy to teach you.
Here are some examples of the types of road rides we like to do:
Rides from Boulder to Hygiene, Lyons, Jamestown, Ward and Carter Lake
Organized rides such as SPAN the Rockies, Copper Triangle and Triple Bypass
Both flat and climbing rides ranging from 30 miles to century rides
But we aren’t just a bunch of roadies! We also have passionate mountain bikers, triathletes and cyclo-cross racers. In the summer months, we have organized mountain bike rides and clinics focusing on all types of riding.
