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. The Mad FORCs (pronounced forks) is open to women of all mountain biking levels - beginner to experts - with the emphasis on having fun. A desire to enjoy the sport of mountain biking is all that is required!

Women on the team race, do trail work, and just plain love to ride their bikes. Our club includes students, professionals, and moms all with a common love for cycling.

In addition, the Mad FORCs sponsors the Women’s Dirt Retreat, a weekend of mountain bike instruction for beginner and intermediate women riders.
