Adventure Mountain Biking With The Ladies

by Diana Proemm, CTRS


Moving to a new city where you don’t know anyone can be scary and daunting. I typically try to turn these fears into adventures, but sometimes fear creeps in. You have your fears of the unknown, social fears of meeting people, etc. Even though people see me as outgoing, I too get social anxiety. Attending social events where I don’t know anyone scares the heck out of me.

My day job leads me on mini excursions everyday. It’s one on one, and the opportunity to meet new people is slim. I recently joined a ladies mountain biking group and have now been able to connect with some local ladies to ride. Because I have not had the opportunity to recreate with the ladies around here, I had forgotten what it was like to recreate with someone new. I preach sisterhood, and yesterday’s ride with ladies I just met proved my choir as we developed the “hood” within our ride.

In our one and half hour ride, we built trust, friendship and a safe place to be. It was OK to stop and take
breath, to try a technical feature, and learn a new skill in safe environment. This is what Bigger Picture RT is all about. Build skills, and sisterhood in a safe place. Nature and recreation promote this in a holistic way that is not forced.

If you have thought about mountain biking, are a mountain biker, come join some fabulous ladies and me for a few days of riding and canyoneering in Moab, Utah. Moab is an outdoor adventure mecca with red rock spanning as far as the eye can see. I will provide a safe and fun environment for everyone to build her current skills.

My goal is for you to try something new; walk away feeling empowered and/or make a new friend. I do not want fear to stop you from joining in the fun. Won’t you join me in Moab in one of the most incredible outdoor playgrounds?
