Just had an ebeam from Sara over at Flowmtb telling us news of this weeks dirt girls holiday in Morzine…take it away Sara:
Something for the girls…and the boys
Flowmtb’s dirtgirls is going into its fourth year of girl only biking trips in the Alps, and as always there are
new improvements on the already great package. For 2009, dirtgirls will return to Morzine, with two
weeks: a beginner’s week from 20‐27th June and a rider’s week from 15‐22nd August. A boys only guided
week will run on the 8‐15th August.
New for 2009, the beginner’s week will run from the 20‐27 June with fully qualified guide and coach
Ulrika Tamanini. Ulrika is a great coach who has the patience to make sure everyone will come out a
better rider. The days will be a mixture of coaching and riding on fantastic trails with amazing scenery.
This week is aimed at girls who are fairly new to mountain biking and want to pick up essential skills
whilst riding in an amazing area of the world.
The rider’s week in August is aimed at regular bikers who want a holiday riding great trails with other
women, and getting some coaching on the way. Petra Wiltshire will be along as coach again, working
with Jo, a fully qualified French guide and instructor. Ulrika will be guiding again this week, so there will
be two separate riding groups each day. Expect a mixture of short coaching sessions on trails, and long
days out on the amazing Alpine singletrack.
New for 2009 is a guided week for blokes only. Rides will be aimed at getting off the beaten track, so
expect long days out on technical trails. Guy Bowden of flowmtb said ‘While most weeks tend to be
male dominated, it’s great to have a specific week for blokes to come out. This is perfect for guys
travelling on their own and wanting a group to ride with.’
Minx, the website dedicated to cycle clothing for girls with attitude will be supporting the dirtgirls weeks
for the fourth year in a row. This year Minx will not only be providing end of week prizes, but is offering
all 2009 dirtgirls a discount on pre‐trip purchases so they can get ready to hit the trails in style!
COSTS: 700 euros (600 pounds) for the beginners dirtgirls week and the boys week, and 800 euros for
the August dirtgirls week. Lift pass and transfers from Geneva airport are included as well as food,
accommodation and guiding.
DATES: Girls ‐ 20‐27 June and 15‐22nd August. Boys – 8‐15 August.
