No Balls Biking

No Balls Biking is a new women’s only MTB group that has been set up in Sheffield, by  riders who have been inspired by women’s only events such as Stilettos on Wheel and want to create a similar vibe for just general riding.

No Balls Biking is a new group for women interested in biking.The idea with this group is to involve all types of rider from beginner to gnarly pinner in all types of cycling whether it is long distance XC or family leisure rides but in an all women environment (safety in numbers) with no pressure to keep up, go fast or attempt crazy speeds or tech. Hopefully there will be regular rides, social meets and more involvement within the Sheffield riding community when it comes to trail maintenance, road safety and dig days. Beware… There may be women with shovels!! Continue reading
