Our goal: To encourage more women and girls to ride and race!

The Queens of Dirt racing team, based in Bellingham, Washington, aims to get more women and girls into dirt sports, specifically mountain biking and cyclocross. We run a popular mountain bike camp each summer, cyclocross clinics come fall, and other cycling and trail-building events throughout the year, for women and girls of all levels. Come ride with us!
