Girls with Grit Collective

GWG Collective is for the community, it’s for women + girls and it’s goal is to get more ladies out mountain biking, skiing, trail running, hiking, stand up paddle boarding, dirt biking, climbing, fly fishing and beyond — AND it’s purpose is to create a community where women can meet other women through adventure and can inspire one another along the way.

What is GWG Collective?

Low and no cost meet-ups, adventures and empowerment events led by our owner and head coach, Shannon + her amazing crew of coaches as well as other guides, coaches and organizations that we will be partnering with for each individual activity. 

These events will not be clinics, but will have coaches and knowledgeable individuals at each one to answer questions you may have as well as get you dialed in on our route and adventure plan for the day. 

Refreshments, snacks + mini swag bags will be available at many GWG Collective events.



Fees + Inclusivity

  • Most events will have a $20 or $40 fee (depending on our costs) paid to GWG but some events will also have additional fees set by the institutions or businesses collaborating with us on these events.

***Keep in mind that events at business locations may have their own fee for entrance/use of equipment.

  • ALL levels and abilities are welcome at these events. From beginners to seasoned adventurers, we want these events to be inclusive and inspire women of all walks of life and backgrounds to help each other be the best versions of ourselves that we can be.
