MiSCA works to increase opportunities for everyone to find their voice in the sport of mountain biking!

BRAVE’s focus will be on creating a solid foundation for our girls to establish a better female-focused community within MiSCA. BRAVE stands for Bold, Resilient, Adventurous, Vibrant, Empowered—qualities that we strive to foster and reinforce in women and all riders and to implement across our lives.

BRAVE is a girls’ adventure ride club that meets throughout the spring and summer. The rides will be non-competitive and will focus on camaraderie, confidence-building, and FUN. Mark your calendars with the dates below!

Registration for BRAVE 2023 will open on March 15th and will remain open until the end of the program or when we reach capacity. Registration is limited, so register today!

Registration will be $50 and will include:

  • Group rides (expect each session to last about 2 hours: ~75-90 minute ride plus social/snack time)
  • Club-exclusive swag
  • Early, discounted access to our custom BRAVE jersey by Borah
  • Snacks!
