After a two year absence, the MTB de femme weekend is returning to Falls Creek, Victoria from on 4-6 March in 2022. The concept and drive for the event is getting more women riding the trails at Falls Creek, all in a safe, friendly and supportive environment. While there are plenty of women's only events and ride days, there's no other women's only mountain bike festival - so the MTB de femme has her own place on the calendar in this regard.

For 2022, the original event founder Jo Prothero and event co-ordinator Xena Pahina will be running the event.

It's not uncommon for many women to have a sub-optimal first riding experience, be it on a partners' old bike, or taking a rider new to the trails on a ride that might be above their current ability. It can be off-putting.

MTB de femme is all about getting out on the bike, having a laugh, learning a few new skills, and connecting with like-minded women. with coffee, lunch and champagne added to the mix!

‘There is something for everyone’ says founder Jo Prothero. 'You can sign up for the social ride aspect, a full day, right the way through to the entire weekend’

Falls Creek isn't short on accommodation options, so you can be completely immersed in the weekend in the mountains.
