Women’s Mountain Bike Getaway

May 18 @ 8:00 am - May 20 @ 5:00 pm


A Women’s Mountain Bike Getaway Weekend, designed by Women

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 her local women’s team, and she’s also an accomplished water skier.

Traverse City is a Great Town!

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 navigating around logs, how to handle sand & soft ground, and how to shift your weight for climbing & descending.

Participants will be responsible for their own transportation to & from our riding areas near Lake Ann, Lake Dubonnet, and Sand Lake.

Yoga, anyone?

To support you off the bike, we’ll offer a Saturday yoga session. There is also a wine & cheese reception on Friday night, complete with home-crafted cheese provided by Tour Chief Jim.

Boys are welcome, on our other tour

In the interest of full disclosure, we do have another mountain bike tour on this same weekend, plus a road bike tour. 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.

A Value-packed Weekend

Your tour fee of $129 includes riding on 3 days, plus our staff support and maps, water & fruit. We’ve worked hard to keep this cost low, and all lodging is ala-cart. We expect many of our guests have their own lodging covered by other means, but if you like, you can add it to your registration. Just click the dropdown arrow on the PayPal button below to see your choices.

Women’s Mountain Bike Tour, May 18-20

Our lodging is at Restwood Motel, a small local motel without a pool or breakfast. If you need these items, register above as a solo guest and call Quality Inn, 231-929-4423. This is next door to Restwood, and rooms are about $175/night. Prefer to camp? Traverse City State Park (http://bit.ly/2EU9OEM) is next door to the Quality Inn! Be aware, lodging will be scarce in Traverse City this weekend due to a soccer event.
