Sisters of Send Weekend 2020 – Wales’ first women’s MTB festival!

by 1

The Sisters of Send collective is excited to announce the launch of Wales’ first women’s MTB festival, the Sisters of Send Weekend 2020. Taking place in the heart of the Afan Valley, the two-day festival is designed to help inspire and nurture sisterhood in MTB while having a bloody good time riding bikes, making friends and taking part in some brilliant events. 

There will be coaching and guiding sessions running throughout the weekend with private use of the legendary Afan bike park, a bespoke skills area, an air bag, an epic 4X track and even the private use of some of the local singletrack. 

In addition to this, brands such as crankbrothers, Ergon, Juliana, Trek, Marin, Fenwicks, Smith and ION will be showcasing their wares in the Event Village, joined by local businesses and non-profits like Trash Free Trails and the Afan Valley Trail Volunteers.

There have never been so many women shredding the trails, and Sisters of Send aim to keep that momentum going by hosting riding events that will inspire, encourage and nurture the women’s mountain bike movement.

No genre of biking is turned down, though she is happiest when at the top of a mountain with a wild descent ahead of her. If you ever want a chat about concussion recovery, dealing with a Womb of Doom or how best to fuel an endurance XC race, she's the one to email.

    Love the Idea! We need more women on bikes!

    My wife and I instantly decided to book tickets..
    ..until we saw how much it will cost.

    £100/£150 for two + food, drinks and petrol, for a night in the field in Afan seems to be quite steep. Especially for a new event 🙁
