Women From Marin

Mountain biking as a sport has predominantly been driven by men.  Such as this may be, the history of the sport and what it has become in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries would not have been possible without the grit and determination of a very colorful group of women.  Women riders featured in this exhibit will be Jacquie Phelan, Wende Cragg, Susan deMattaei, and Frances E. Willard.  These riders have long been role models working against the gender restrictions and stereotypes of mountain biking that persist today.
