Discover Bell Joy Ride: Richmond, VA

The mission of Richmond Bell Joy Rides are to provide an opportunity for women to feel safe and comfortable while learning to ride trails and improve upon their mountain biking skills.

We offer monthly trail rides throughout the area with occasional weekend field trips to experience different trails in nearby cities. All of the trails are suitable for new riders and also offer an enjoyable ride for experienced riders. Our rides are tailored to beginner and intermediate riders and we'll break up into groups based on skill level so that there is something for everyone.

I hail from: Richmond, VA

But I have roots in: Richmond, VA

I pay my rent/mortgage by: I’m a Corporate Trainer in the healthcare industry

My guilty pleasure is: Lying in the sun

When I was little, I wanted to grow up and be: A teacher

Now that I’m all growed up, I really want to: Learn & teach & play & explore

The best time I ever had on a bike was: So many! Taking out-of-town friends around my home trails, taking my mom out riding in the park, riding in new areas of the country, enjoying a long, flowy downhill reward after a tough climb

The worst time I ever had on a bike was: Toss-up between crashing & having my brake lever embedded in my thigh and getting dropped & left behind on what was supposed to be a fun group ride

My mama always used to say: Do you need to go to the bathroom before we leave?

I’ve always wanted a pet: I’m happy with my cats. I have a strict 2:1 cat-human ratio.

Because: They are loving, entertaining, and independent

Shout out to: Lorene Davidson for being my first MTB mentor and Kendell Ryan for making the first years of Bell Joy Ride RVA a smashing success

My five favorite words are: Can we ride it again?!
