Founded in 2013, Muddy Pedals is a female owned and operated company. With a vision and passion for enhancing the women's mountain bike community, we strive to empower women to ride dirty. Through personalized instruction and the camaraderie of a great community of riders, Muddy Pedals will promote the life-style of mountain biking.


We offer beginner rides, intermediate rides, group classes, and one-on-ones; all taking place on the world-class trails in our beautiful Mid-Atlantic region. Want to learn trail-side and general bike maintenance?  We offer that too!  Don't let not having a mountain bike hold you back, if you need a high quality trail appropriate bike, we will set you up.


Muddy Pedals was started BY women, FOR women (WTF+). We took friends out on the trail for the first time and saw their pure joy and excitement after their first ever mountain bike experience. After seeing women empowered and confident after just one ride, we felt that there had to be a way to get more women on a bike! We want to bridge the gap between wanting to try mountain biking...and actually doing it!
