Swift Trails was founded by Lucy Husband to promote mountain biking to women in the Tweed Valley and to show riders what amazing and varied trails we have on our doorsteps. Aware that some women can feel intimidated by the stereotypical picture of mountain biking – which tends to be characterized by a culture where speed and technical challenge is everything- Lucy wanted to dispel this myth and get women out into the countryside to enjoy the “simple pleasures” of being outside in nature, with friends and family, keeping fit and mentally healthy.
To support women feel more confident on their bikes, Swift Trails run monthly guided ride-outs, a womens MTB group, MTB skills courses specifically for women, family fun days and bike maintenance workshops. Join our Facebook group and keep up to date with what we're up to!
