    The Yeti Bike Bash sounds like a blast! Wish I lived closer so I could join the fun.
    My first mountain bike ride was awful- I went off the trail and crashed down a steep slope, couldn't get through any of the rock beds, couldn't catch my breath, got eaten by a thousand black flies and I was riding a very old bike from target. I couldn't wait to try it again! Why? Because I had never experienced beauty like that of the trail, loved playing on the dirt, relished the sweet aroma of the pine trees and had so much fun I couldn't stay away. That was almost 4 years ago and I love it even more today.
    Thanks Girls & Gears for another great episode!

    Loved this episode. So inspiring. My first mtb race? THE FIRST YETI BETI BASH. I was petrified, of course. And it was fantastic. Keep up the wonderful work. Getting more women and little girlies (like ours) on BIKES!

    My first mountain bike race was one week after deciding to randomly buy a bike. Mud, Sweat and Beers. I did the shor race and walked every single hillm A local shop, a ton of awesome new friends and a full winter outside having FUN, while exercising has left me totally addicted. This year, I did the long race, single speed, rode each hill and beat my time from last year. I'm so thankful for the health and positive mental attitude changes mountain biking has added to my life.

    In 1999, I toed the line at my first mountain bike race. I was on an old Specialized FSR that weighed 28 pounds, complete with reflectors and toe clips. Sport class, 2 laps, time of 1:50, mid-pack placing. I had to walk a couple rock gardens that today seem effortless. I was so exhausted afterwards, I fell asleep in the car as my husband drove us home. On that day, I was bitten by the racing bug!

    First MTB race was Chequamegon Fat Tire 40. took it easy for the first half, before ripping the second portion with a crazy happy grin on my face. Can't wait to give it a real go this year!

    My 1st mtb race was the Widowmaker Challenge in 1997. I'd only been riding for a few months but I figured since the race was on trails in my backyard how hard could it be. It was HARD but I was hooked! The Widowmaker no longer happens it's been replaced by the Carrabassett Cross Country Challenge. The hardest 50miler I've ever done.

    My first race was the Beti Bike Bash!!!! I was terrified, but it was so much fun. Awesome, positive atmosphere. Now I'm hooked! Keep it up Yeti Beti - love seeing more and more women hit the trails on their bikes. My daughter can't wait until she's 8 so she can take the girls' mountain bike camp :)

    My first mountain bike race has "Yeti" to happen. I'm a long-time trail racer (running). In 2012 I bought my first mountain bike and soon became an addict. Having a competitive nature, I'd like to race but have been too afraid. Afraid I'll hold racers up, afraid I'll get run over, afraid my skills aren't good enough, afraid of being stranded by a mechanical, afraid of being ignorant of race etiquette…The Beti Bike Bash sounds like the supportive environment I'm looking for…afraid I'm too old (54).

  • Amy Thomas (Thursday, May 22 14 08:08 pm EDT)

    Christine Boose you are not too old! Our 50+ age groups are huge. If you race has shown anything is that you are never too young or too old to try a mountain bike race.

    My first mountain bike race came about after a local bike shop bet me is like Mtb riding over road riding. They loaned me a bike and a month later I signed up for the Dawn to Dusk race in AZ. I was hooked! But I needed a bike. Through a small group of mountain bikers I met at the race parts were donated and I was given a 29 hard tail VooDoo as a gift. Forever loyal to mountain biking
