The Mad FORCs, Madison's Female Off-Road Cyclists, started in the spring of 1994 as a way to encourage more women to get involved in mountain biking. In 1995, the club expanded to include a race team as it was clear that there needed to be more women at the races.

Mad FORCs (pronounced forks) is open to women of all mountain biking levels - beginner to experts - with the emphasis on having fun. Slow or fast, a desire to learn more about and enjoy the sport of mountain biking is all that is required!
