Dirt Side Sisters

Sometimes in life an unexpected gift is dropped right into your hands.

That happened to me yesterday, when a simple text from a friend inviting me to join a "women's ride at River Legacy on Friday" and "dinner on the patio at Grease Monkey" afterward turned into an amazing time of fellowship with a group of women who call themselves the Dirt Side Sisters.

Lisa Uranga and Lorinda Putter, two dedicated ambassadors to the sport of mountain biking, have been working hard to build a platform and a community where women can gain confidence and launch into their own adventures on the dirt. I love it!!

I met a whole group of ladies who share the passion for riding. From Plano to Keller to Murphy to Denton, women from all over the metroplex and from all walks of life met at River Legacy for their final ride of the season. The good news? They are starting back up in April!

 Lisa teaches technique at the famous EKG section of River Legacy trail in Arlington.


                           Mallory and Kelly demonstrate how to negotiate a tricky descent.

 You go girls!


                                    Lorinda preps the group on how to safely drop in...

Everyone conquered the drop!                                           Lisa shoots a few pics.

Lisa and Lorinda wrap up the evening of dirt, dinner, and drinks with some great swag handouts. Everyone celebrated the accomplishments of each other. Here's to the dirt side sisters!

See you in the spring!
