More skills = more confidence = more fun.
Do more.
 Ride Bikes. Be Happy.

We hope that if we can give you the skills to feel more confidence and have more fun that you will then say ‘Yes’ to adventures more often. When others invite you to go on trips, mini missions or a quick couple of laps, you’ll feel that you know know to manage your self, fix you stuff, pack your gear so that you can enjoy it more. Maybe you’ll meet new rad ladies to plan adventures and invite others along. We love what we do and where we do it and want to share the stoke and the things we’ve learnt along the way.

Say ‘Yes’ to adventure more often. Come play.

This camp is suitable for a variety of levels from novice to intermediate riders. To get the most out of the weekend we would hope that you had been riding for a year or 2 on grade 2/3 trails for 1-2 hours. Ideal for women who like riding off road on wide dirt trails or on singletrack terrain which may include trees, mud, loose rocks and sand. We will be splitting into 2-3 ability groups during the weekend and rotating through the 3 local coaches and guides who all have different styles and passions to bring to the table. But if you’re not sure if your level is right, please get in contact to chat.
