Green Mountain Bike Club
GMBC is the oldest bike club in Vermont. Their membership includes touring riders, racers, and commuters from beginners to experts. During the cycling season, they organize regular training and recreational rides and club races (time trials and criteriums). GMBC takes sharing the road and responsible riding & driving seriously and asks that drivers and bicyclists work together to make roads a safer place. Their mission is to promote cycling for fitness and friendship; encourage safe, courteous riding practices; organize weekly recreational rides, training rides, and competitive events, and engage in bicycling advocacy at the state and local level.

Women on Wheels in the Wissahickon
This group of women encourages each other at all levels of mountain biking. Women on Wheels in the Wissachikon aims to get more women riding, in a supportive environment. Through mountain biking together, we all improve. This group gets together weekly for a supportive, no-drop, friendly, multi-level ride in the Wissahickon (when the trails are solid and dry). WTF welcome. Beginners welcome.
Queen City Bike Club
Queen City Bicycle Club (QCBC) is a group of female and non-binary people riding bikes for fun, for connection, and for empowerment. There is no formal way to join Queen City Bicycle Club. If you're a female-identifying or non-binary person who rides bicycles, you're part of QCBC if you want to be. The Facebook group is the main method of communication. Members of the Facebook group should feel free to use the group to connect with one another, share related events, initiate discussions, and use the group as a resource.
VMBA Local Chapters
The Vermont Mountain Bike Association serves as the statewide voice of mountain biking advocacy and is comprised of nearly 30 chapters across the state. Chapters are the backbone of Vermont’s amazing singletrack and riding culture. The combination of VMBA and chapters is a uniquely productive pairing and is the only of its kind in the country.

They aim to create a community that will empower girls through the sport, emphasize the importance of goal-setting, promote healthy lifestyles and recognizes the positive effects of strong female bonds. While this program is centered around creating camaraderie for girls on bikes, it is most importantly about having fun in a constructive environment.
