Ladies, Take your mountain biking skills to the next level!

Join our 4 week mountain bike camp where you will improve your existing skills, make some new mountain bike friends and build your confidence in a low pressure, supportive learning environment.

The camp will run for 4 Mondays in a row – April 29 and May 6/13/20 from 6:00 – 8:00pm each evening with a beginner/novice group and an intermediate + group.


Cost: $350/person with 1 full scholarship available in each group.

Beginner/Novice Group Target Riders: Women who are looking to improve their riding in a supportive, no pressure environment. You must be comfortable on Green trails currently and some blues and looking to build your skills to help you take your riding to the next level and get more comfortable on technical climbs and descents. If you identify as an advanced beginner or intermediate rider that is comfortable on green trails and some blues this is for you! Maximum group size of 5 riders.

Intermediate/Intermediate + Group Target Riders: Women who are comfortable on blue trails and starting to touch on easy black trails/wanting to explore black terrain. If you are confident with your fundamentals but want to explore more challenging terrain, including jumps and drops(1-4ft in height) this is the crew for you! Maximum group size of 6 riders.
Location: The clinic will take place on the trails at both Crawford and Knox mountain to allow for a variety of terrain/trails to be explored.
Our goal is to not only have you develop your skills on a mountain bike, but to help you develop confidence in your own abilities so that you can challenge yourself and push outside your comfort zone to see what you are truly capable of!
