Social Ride | Awaba NSW | 26.07.2020

We will sparkle!

Event update, 24 July 2020, 8pm

Unfortunately the planned Diamonds Social Ride on Sunday, 26 July 2020 is cancelled due to predicted wet weather. All registered riders have been notified via email. Read the full update here…

Coming up:

Originally scheduled for 18 July 2020, we had big plans at Awaba MTB Park to truly take this event to the next level – our founder Juliane always wanted this to become an occasion for women who love being out on ‘rocky trails’ and active in nature to truly be themselves. We want to this event to evolve as an inspiring, motivational and safe space to re-discover and share and embrace our female spirit.

With the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic it was simply not possible to put a race out there with the tight lead time to the original event date in July. We miss the connection with you all and I want to still foster and grow the amazing Diamonds women’s community we have created over the years. We were organising a free Diamonds Social Ride instead, which was cancelled due to bad weather.

We are working on setting a new date for the Diamonds in the Dirt event at Awaba MTB Park now and will communicate it as soon as possible.

Stay involved!

We have launched a survey to redefine the Diamonds in the Dirt event and for that we’d like to ask that you help us answer the question:


  1. FILL OUT SURVEY: In the 5-10 min survey we are interested in what the women in our Rocky Trail community who ride and race and enjoy activities outdoors on trails want. We are still on track for the second Diamonds event in November and I will be working on the event concept over the next weeks and months to dial it to, well, what you want.

All our answers are anonymous.
