Join Holiday’s experienced guides and the professional coaches of Women in the Mountains for a women’s mountain bike clinic trip on the iconic White Rim Trail! Holiday’s guides handle the cooking, camp logistics, and bring a 4×4 support van to carry the load. Meanwhile, Women in the Mountains provides top-notch, certified PMBIA coaches to guide you through this biker’s paradise.
New for summer 2023, we are excited to offer two women’s multi-day mountain bike clinics! Our 3-day trip is intended for intermediate mountain bikers comfortable biking 25-30 miles/day on mostly doubletrack. You’ll be accompanied by coaches to help guide you through the more technical portions of the ride. This trip focuses more on getting out and riding; participants should be comfortable riding their mountain bikes for hours at a time (with breaks for water and snacks). For skills, participants should know how to use their brakes safely and how to descend in the “ready position” (off the seat, level pedals, speed control with ease). If these skills don’t come easily, consider taking a Fundamentals course from Women in the Mountains in St. George or Park City, Utah. If you’re looking for more dedicated workshop and clinic time, consider coming on our 4.5 day trip.
Our extended 4.5 day trip provides ample time for skills clinics with your coaches. These clinics cover correct body position on the bike, how to safely and effectively use your brakes, tackle corners and ride over small obstacles. While this curriculum is designed for beginners, it is an excellent way for seasoned riders to review the basics, break old habits, and ride trails with renewed confidence.
