Fernie Women on Wheels
The Fernie Women on Wheels program (FWOW), spearheaded by an FTA member club the Fernie Mountain Bike Club (FMBC) has been running since 2013. They are a group of women ripping it up on Fernie’s awesome trails. The group has grown into weekly scheduled rides on Wednesdays and Fridays with approximately 15-20 ladies attending pre COVID-19. They hope to get things rolling again in the Spring, COVID-19 dependent.
Some of the popular weekly trails include Montane Blue, Coal Heritage Trail and sections of the Trans Canada Trail/Elk Valley Trail. All levels of riders are welcome and groups are split up based on levels. For the more advanced rides some of the favourites include Hypervent to Today’s Special and Project 9.
To get involved and stay up to date on upcoming rides join the Fernie Women on Wheels Facebook group. Please note you need to be a Fernie Mountain Bike member to join the rides and a waiver must be completed online.
