13 Women’s Only Cycling Events You’ll Love – 2021

While you can (and should) join in on the plethora of co-ed cycling events out there, there is something really special about doing a womens only event. The atmosphere at these events are inviting, supportive, friendly–and often a little silly!

Here is a list of 13 ladies-only cycling events including organized non-competitive road rides and mountain bike festivals. Organize a group of your girlfriends, or go solo and make some new friends!

Of course, this is 2021 and life is still a little weird. This year some of these events are in person–others are virtual. The dates are often in flux as well, so keep a bit of flexibility and stay tuned as things evolve.
