Women's Page

At Pure Mountains we pride ourselves on being female-friendly. About 40% of our guests are women, which is pretty good for mountain biking. We have a female guide and foster a non-macho atmosphere.

We are very keen to attract more female guests, so let us know if you have suggestions about how we can do this!

On a practical / delicate note : out on the trail, loo stops tend to be behind bushes, although we can sometimes stop in a village and use the loo in local bar.

Please don't bring a hairdryer or straighteners, as the solar power system can't cope with them. Helmet hair isn't so bad! A recent guest revealed that frizzy hair can be tamed with giant rollers, available form all good hair salons, apparently.

We have women's saddles, which we can fit to the hire bikes and which will make an enormous difference to your cycling comfort. Or even better, bring your own saddle.

If you're looking for a good women's saddle for your own bike, we recommend the Selle Italia Diva (except for the name; what can you do?).
