Who We Are

Magic City Cycle Chix (MC3) is a grass-roots group of like-minded, bike-minded gals who love cycling and live in or near Birmingham, Ala. Founded in January 2011 by a two-wheeled mama who wanted to meet other women on wheels, we now have more than 900 members on Facebook, in Birmingham and beyond. We are roadies, mountain bikers, cruisers, cyclocross racers, and moms towing toddlers in bike trailers up hills that crush some dudes. We are beginners, racers, social riders, and commuters. We ride together for safety, for support, and most of all, for fun.

Our Mission

Building courage, confidence, and community, two wheels at a time. We connect and support women who ride bikes by providing a friendly social network, regular girls-only rides, skill-building events, and a non-competitive environment. We believe biking is good for your health and good for your soul, and it’s not just about being active; it’s about having fun.

Our Goals

Through our Facebook group, we share updates on news, group rides, events, deals, gear, and relevant tips women cyclists need to know (like paceline Dos and Don’ts, trail etiquette, etc.) We aim to host at least one women-only, beginner-friendly ride every week (road and mountain), and occasional social mixers.
