The world's only women's mountain bike festival. No pandering. No skills clinics. Just 3 days of ridiculously fun lady shred.

About this Event

"If it were any more fun, it would be illegal." - Singletracks.com

Roam Bike Fest is a three day gathering (AKA party) of female riders, influencers, and legends all gathered for one purpose: to spend a weekend slaying trail and talking bikes in a world-class riding destination with a few hundred other mtb-obsessed lady shredders.

FESTIVAL PASS - WHAT'S INCLUDED

  • Hundreds of demo bikes from 6+ hand selected bike brands
  • Shuttles on shuttles on shuttles
  • Group rides w/ local ride leaders & brand ambassadors
  • (Finally!) High-end women's mtb apparel all in one place
  • Bike related workshops, panels, discussions, & presentations
  • Killer dance party
  • Free raffle ticket for our famous giveaway with absolutely insane prizes
  • Free dinner Saturday night at our deliciously healthy fiesta feast
  • Free inspiring AF film screening of an all-women's film festival
  • Free dranks at our Happiest Hour (best hour of your life)
  • Much much more!

Girl, if you aren't convinced this will be the best weekend you've had on two wheels..well, as we say, FOMO is real!

"I went out on a limb and went to Roam Bike Fest completely solo without knowing a single soul there. I wasn't sure if that was normal or how the weekend would turn out, but the website made it look pretty fun and welcoming and boy, did I make the right decision. The community of women at Roam was so supportive, so rad, welcoming and open. It was like summer camp for adult women who love to shred. I made some friends for life, got in some incredible riding, grew and challenged myself as a rider, enjoyed some baller demos, took in the energy from some unreal scenery and am still on cloud nine after my experience. "

- Kristina, 2018 Participant

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - AND ANSWERS

Q: Will there be on-the-bike skills clinics?

A: Nope! We are here to shred! There are dozens of off-the-bike educational workshops throughout the weekend for post-ride nerding out.

Q: What is camping like?

A: We have a huge campsite that can accommodate the entire festival if everyone wants to stay over - and REI is hosting! Camping is primitive (i.e a farm), please prepare to be self-reliant for the weekend with food, supplies, and baby wipes a-plenty!

Q: Should I really bring a Star Wars costume for the dance party?

A: Shhyaaaah! Even better if it is home made!

Q: Can my super adorable fur baby Fluffy come to the festival?

A: Due to the insanity that would ensue if 200 women showed up with their 300 dogs...we ask that you leave Fluffy at home.

Q: Can my husband/boyfriend/totally platonic man-friend come?

A: Nope. Roam Bike Fest is a women's-only bike festival. We can't go catching any cooties (we've neutralized the handful of guys working at the festival for their respective bike companies), so please plan on enjoying an awesome weekend with a bunch of other rad ladies without your fella!

However, it is totally okay for your fella to drop you off or pick you up to/from the festival!

Q: Are WTF invited?

A: Absolutely. Anyone who identifies as female and is over the age of 21 is welcome to join the festival.

Q: What if it rains?

A: The festival will go on as scheduled, barring any crazy Acts of God that would make it unsafe to continue the festival. We have a number of workshops and indoor-friendly activities that you can enjoy while waiting out a passing rain shower.

Q: Can I upgrade my one or two day festival pass?

A: Yes! Before the festival? Email us. At the festival? Talk to us at the festival HQ tent and we'll get you set!

Q: I want to use my 2-Day Pass for Sat/Sun, but i'm arriving Friday night. Can I come to the film screening?

A: Yes, at-the-door tickets are $10.
