A Women’s Mountain Bike Getaway Weekend
We’ve planned a Women’s Mountain Bike Getaway Weekend for you. Two women leaders on our staff, Sarah Slade and Kelly Hibbert, both proficient mountain bikers, have combined their talents to plan this great event. Sarah has taught mountain biking skills to adults in Colorado and in Michigan, and has wonderful outdoor skills. Kelly rides with the Hometown Bicycle Women’s Team, and she’s also an accomplished water skier.
We’ll gather in Traverse City on Friday for an active weekend of mountain biking. This area is Sarah’s home playground, and she’s mapped out a handful of great beginner and intermediate routes for the weekend. In addition, we’ll have a skills clinic covering things like jumping logs, how to handle sand & soft ground, and how to shift your weight for climbing & descending. There will be prizes for completing the course.
To support you off the bike, we’ll offer a Saturday yoga session. There will also be a wine & cheese reception on Friday night, complete with home-crafted cheese provided by Tour Chief Jim.
Boys are welcome, but only on one of our other tours (mountain bike and road bike) held the same weekend and staying in the same hotel.
Looking to arrive with your spouse or friend but not interested in riding with them? Then this is a perfect weekend getaway as all tours share the same hotel, along with the Friday guest reception and Saturday yoga session. which may have boys AND girls along for the fun.
It’s very easy to register for the tour! Visit our website and look for the registration link.
Cost is $599 for two guests in a shared room and is for $399 single.
