WMBA of Colorado Springs is a women’s only mountain bike club in it’s 2nd year. One of the reason it was formed was to provide women the support to learn mountain biking skills without the intimidation of doing in front of men. I don’t remember which one of them said, “We go ride our bikes to have fun instead of trying to hurt each other like guys do.”

Their group rides for this year kick off on Saturday. They have riders of all abilities so if you’re a total newbie you won’t be intimidated and if you’re a more experienced rider wanting to get better you’ll be able to improve. Below is their current schedule but I’d check their group ride page for changes before heading out.
