President: Sharon Parkes

Sharon’s boyfriend’s passion of mountain biking drew Sharon to the Dirty Girlz mountain bike club in 2011, as she wanted to find some females interested in the sport. She soon became hooked to the sport loving the thrill of achieving the latest rock face or challenge of the climb. She will be forever grateful to the Dirty Girlz beginner rides, which are a great place to meet similar minded people and practice those essential skills. Sharon can be seen weeknights and weekends at Hartland. Look out for her and say hi.


Vice President: Amanda Cavanaugh 

Treasurer: Margot Bracewell

A cycling enthusiast (road and triathlon) from a young age, Margot started mountain biking only a few years ago.  As a supportive mom on a borrowed hard-tail, she eagerly tagged behind her son on the trails. While she still can’t keep up with him, she has embraced the love of single-track and looks for every opportunity to learn new skills.  The Dirty Girlz Bike Club has helped to broadened Margot’s cycling network of like-minded women across the Island.  Come join us for a ride!

Secretary: Cathy Patchell


Member at Large: Deanna Mills

Deanna’s mountain biking adventures started off spending most weekend chasing her husband and his buddies down the mountains. She longed for some girls to ride with whose only advice was not just to “Go faster”. She joined the Dirty Girlz a couple years ago and has noticed a dramatic improvement in skill building and confidence both on technical uphill and downhill. She loves new challenges and conquering something new on every ride.
