Women of Dirt ’13

For the 4th year running, this revolutionary Women of Dirt 6 hr MTB event took place on 9 November 2013.

What an amazing day we had for our 4th annual Women of Dirt event, we are still buzzing! Even the weather played ball! A huge congrats to everyone out there giving it a go, and making this day so fantastic. The biggest turn-out yet with over a 120 ladies (31 teams and 18 solos!), an abundance of yummy home baked goodies for the bake off, and creative costumes all around. We can’t wait for the 5th annual event in 2014!

“We’re not like other girls; we like brown more than pink, camelbaks better than handbags, and would choose a chain ring over a diamond ring any day… We are the Women of Dirt!”

Dirty Girls

In a team of up to 4 women you’ll take turns riding around a set course (approx 30 min long). The team with the most laps in 6 hours takes the cake… literally! So gather your friends, dress up in your fancy costumes and bite some dirt.
Dirt Diva
A solo option for the Wonder Women out there, the endurance lovers. You’ll be on the same course as the Dirty Girls, also for 6 hours – though your speedometer will show a few more km’s at the end of the day!

Dirty Girls (Team up to 4): $120 (Revolve members), $140 (non-members)
Dirt Diva (Solo): $40 (Revolve members), $50 (non-members)

What about Women of Dirt t-shirts?
It’s what all the cool kids will be wearing… Women of Dirt t-shirts! Yep that’s right; only $35 ($30 for members) and printed right here in Wellington.
