Years ago, you'd be hard-pressed to surf the Internet and find inspiring bad-ass mountain biking women. Not that they weren't out there, they just weren't getting the recognition they deserved. 


Now, the landscape has changed and female mountain bikers (myself included) have strong female role models to look up to and lots of other women to shred with and learn from. Don't get me wrong, it's wonderful riding with the dudes, but sometimes the trailside chats and riding environment is a little different with a group of gals.


For your daily dose of inspiration...

Here are 12 Female Mountain Bikers to Follow On Instagram
