The gOgirl premise is to develop confidence both on and off the bike. Both programs are centered around mountain bike handling and progression/skill, which are paralleled to life skills and goals. We also believe that nutrition, rest, injury prevention, proper hydration and bike maintenance are hugely important. Our hope for both programs is to love the mountain biking, the experience, hanging with girlfriends and developing healthy lifestyle habits for their entire lives.

This is our intro level group. Riders must be able to ride a bike independently with the excitement and attitude of getting out and about around Gunnison. They are ready to gain experience on mountain bike trails and learn the fundamentals of biking.
This group will be mostly outdoors for the afternoon, taking any needed snack breaks and multiple stops during the day (bonus is a stop at Jermaine’s for some fro yo!). The general idea is to get these kids to learn about riding around Gunnison, with an eventual transition from pavement onto beginner mountain bike trails around Hartman’s and Signal Peak. An emphasis will be kept on abiding by important city riding rules, obeying all laws and maintaining safety both on the streets and on the trails.
This group will also participate in other activities (rec center, lake, river, etc.) as permitted, and go to Crested Butte once or twice during the summer season.
Second level gO riders love getting out on their bikes and should have previous experience riding mountain bike trails in/around the Gunnison area. They enjoy longer rides, exploring new terrain and are excited to ride more.
We recognize that within this age range there can be a wide range of abilities. Orange riders are separated into groups according to their ability level to ensure a great experience for all (depending on coach availability). Orangers will develop their riding skills to improve confidence and control on Gunnison area trails.
This group will also participate in other activities on some Thursdays, and go to Crested Butte several times during the summer season to ride.
Tertiary gO riders are super excited to get out on intermediate trails with friends of a similar age and ability. They have experience on mountain bike trails and are looking to fine tune their skills to ride more!
We recognize that within this group there can be a wide range of abilities. Red riders are separated into groups according to their ability level to ensure a great experience for all (depending on coach availability).
Red Riders will work towards improving their skills to ride up, down and over Gunnison area trails, including Signal Peak and Hartman Rocks. This group will also go to Crested Butte several times during the summer season to ride.
Now in our fourth year of partnership, the gO Initiative gOgirl program is again partnering with CBMR’s Mountain Sports Team, to develop the gOgirl Mountain Sports Team! The program will be offered two days a week (Mondays and Wednesdays) with a focus on mountain biking skills either on lift-served Evo park trails or trail riding on the valley’s best trail system.
