Killington Bike Park continues partnership with Pro Mountain Biker Amy Alton to lead Friday night group rides.

KILLINGTON, Vt. (July 19, 2017) – Vermont’s Killington Resort, a four season destination and home of the Killington Bike Park, announces the return of Killington Divas of Dirt, an initiative led by Pro Downhill/Enduro Racer Amy Alton and the Killington Bike Park to foster the community of passionate female mountain bikers.

“Our first year proved successful with many female riders of all ability levels enjoying the Friday bi-weekly rides and post-ride happy hour.  We welcomed total beginners, cross country riders looking to sharpen descending skills, and advanced rippers looking to explore new terrain over at Ramshead,” says Alton.

Female mountain bikers of all ability levels are welcome to share their passion for the sport and make new connections at the bi-weekly Friday night group rides and happy hours.

Alton adds, “I continue to be astounded by Killington's passionate community of women mountain bikers and am delighted to be partnering again with Killington Resort in support of the Divas of Dirt. Our community values a personal riding experience that supports and encourages one another. The Divas of Dirt rides hosted women from across the region as well as out of state and country in our first year and I look forward to another great season being a part of such a fun and fierce community.”

Friday Night Rides

Every other Friday beginning July 21, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. the Killington Divas of Dirt encourage female riders to join a hosted group ride, exploring the trails throughout Killington Bike Park. The evening includes bike safety checks, plus discounted bike park lift tickets and rental bikes. Riders without a Bike Park Season Pass can use Killington’s lifts for just $20, and combined lift ticket and bike rentals are available for $39 for the two-hour sessions.

After the Killington Bike Park closes, the Killington Divas of Dirt enjoy happy hour at the Snowshed Umbrella Bar.
