You can still be gay and ride with straight guys. Nobody cares if you gay or not as long as you don’t try to slip it in on the trail. I honestly don’t care who my riding partners are as long as they are respectful.

Can’t speak for everyone but most MTB’ers I know/ride with seem to be pretty open-minded people. We’re all out on the trails because we like riding bikes so for me, sexual orientation doesn’t play into it.
Would be interesting if there were some gay MTB clubs though.

Haven’t heard of any, but like the previous posts have stated, bikers are an inclusive bunch. Good luck

Think you’re on the wrong site buddy.

I like to segregate my riding groups as well. I’ve been looking for a club for left-handed partially deaf riders with little penises for years but so far, no luck.

Yup, there are gay mountain bikers out there! I’ve been mountain biking since 1983 and I fall into the category of a mountain biker that happens to be gay. I completely understand the point of this question! And while it shouldn’t matter, it does. Difficult to find someone in my world that’s into mountain biking and skiing and happens to be gay (and open about it)!

For the people I ride with, I don’t care what their sexual preference is, what they’re political views are, or any other non-MTB preferences. We’re mountain bikers. When we’re on the trail let’s talk bikes, components, trails, lines, features, riding direction, etc. Now if you want to throw down some brews afterward and shoot the bull just do it with people you are comfortable with. The world is much more accepting today and I think you’ll find most people really don’t care. However, while most won’t care about your sexual preference, straight guys probably don’t want to talk about guys… just sayin’.

Old thread, but I remember back in the day there was a mountain biker who won 14 NORBA downhill titles and 11 world cups, 1994 world championship, two World Cup overalls, etc. Her name is Missy Giove and she’s gay. Sex really doesn’t matter much in cycling unless you make it matter.

According to Merriam Webster, the top definition of gay is: 1) happily excited 2) keenly alive and exuberant: having or inducing high spirits
Going by this information I would surmise that just about every mountain biking group out there is gay. I mean, who isn’t happily excited, keenly alive, exuberant, and in high spirits when they’re bombing down an awesome trail?

I was having a similar difficulty finding lgbt+ oriented clubs so I decided to form one. We’re based on the front range of Colorado but I’m hoping the group will eventually extend outward and become an online forum for us. Check it out on Facebook if you’re still interested in finding like-minded mountain bikers. We’re out there for sure.

I’ve been looking for some heterosexuals to ride with for years!

Yep, gay mtn bike here. Totally agree with prior posters about the open/inclusiveness of mtn bikers. Never had any issues riding with anyone I want. It’s really all about the ride. I ride with an awesome group of straight guys that love to joke and play. Lots of fun gay joking.
That being said, would love to find another gay rider.. if they’re good and fun!

Yeah im a gay 24 year old Londoner who rides on the weekends and stuff. I actually spend a lot of time in and around the mountain bike sphere working as a photographer for events like Crankworx and the DH World Cup. I haven’t “come out” to my followers on IG and etc just yet but I don’t think I need to tbh. I mean if they ask if im dating or have a girlfriend I’ll just get back to them and say na man I like dick. I wonder what they’re response will be to that will be. hmmm its scary and exciting at the same time because its all fun and as long as you ride bikes then that’s all that matters.

as long as you ride bikes then that’s all that matters.
Thats it man. Enjoy the ride.

I haven’t come to this site in a few months. This is the first post I see. Wat?!
Who gives a fuck what you are, just send it my dude.

I’m pretty disappointed in the responses to this guy. His question was brief, polite, and simple. All the “nnnnnnnnnnnnooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” and “you’re on the wrong site buddy” is ridiculous. Why not just pass on the chance to be a jerk. If being gay upsets you or if someone wanting to find some gay guys to ride with offends you then you are a little snowflake pansy.

Lonnie mulligan look at the posters profiles, if they have more than one other post I would be surprised. They are just trollers looking for a response.
January 29, 2020 at 5:01 pm #304451
This forum sure gave a response. Wish it was a less homophobic one.
January 29, 2020 at 7:04 pm #304452
Your question is a bit arrogant. It’s like asking are there any Christian bikers or are there any Latin bikers or are there any physically challenged bikers, etc. What difference does it make if you enjoy the trails?

Maybe try the Meetup app to find like-minded peeps to ride with?
