Description

At Roam, our mission is helping you find fresh air and freedom from the daily grind by providing all-inclusive, fun as hell, mountain bike vacations in world-class riding destinations. Choose your own pace and adventure with multi-level rides led by our team of knowledgeable lady shredders, fuel yourself with our organic-inspired meals, snacks, and post-ride treats, learn tips and tricks from our professional team of mechanics, & enjoy free demo rides from a custom fleet of full-suspension Specialized Stumpjumpers.

"I attended my first Roam Retreat in Sedona, AZ. It was the most amazing experience. I can't speak highly enough of the staff. The amazing meals and snacks they personally prepared were absolutely delicious. The Specialized demo bikes they provided were top of the line. I cant recommend Roam enough and I am already looking forward to my next retreat." - Heather, Bike Shop Owner, Kingman Arizona

What To Expect?

From the moment you arrive at your "Roam Retreat", you will likely recieve a very genuine bear-hug from one or more members of our staff. After we hug-it-out, you'll get settled into your accommodations and then ready to ride. This may include getting setup on a 2019 Specialized demo bike or Industry Nine wheelset; we'll work closely with you to hand-select the right bike and size that suits your riding style and experience level.

Once ready, we will pair you up with a group of similarly skilled riders and a knowledgable ride leader to whisk you away onto the epic red dirt that Sedona is famous for. Your ride duration will depend on your arrival time, but afterwards, you'll enjoy a beautiful meal carefully curated and prepared by our staff to ensure you are properly fueled for a weekend of riding. Vegetarian, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Vegan options will always be available.

Breakfast will be plentiful, and after a quick description of the day's rides, you will self-select into a group of lady shredders of similar skill and speed. Don't worry if you aren't sure where you fit in; our team has helped thousands of women find their "sweet spot" within group rides, and we're here to help you do the same. We've had world champion pros join us, along newer weekend warriors and everything in-between (frequently all on the same trip)...we get asked a lot, and we'll let you know in advance that absolutely there are trails and a group for you to ride with.

Lunch is prepared daily with an impressive DIY sandwich spread and easy-to-take-with-you snacks so you can opt to chill and eat, or take a lunch to-go, allowing for more ride time. In the evenings we will set aside time for an optional technical workshop where you'll have an opportunity to learn basic bike maintenance, as well as a chance to delve into more advanced topics such as suspension and brakes with our team of professional female mechanics with support from SRAM.

Throughout the weekend you can choose your own adventure and ride until you can't feel your legs, or take a mellow approach and ride less, opting for more free time to relax and enjoy stunning Sedona Arizona.

We can't wait to ride with you,

-The Roam Crew



FAQs

Where can I learn more about Roam Events?

Learn more at www.thisisroam.com follow the link to Roam Retreats for retreat specific details!


What is the difference between ticket prices?

Accommodations. Each ticket is assigned to a different studio, room, bed, etc. Please carefully read ticket details.

Is this a skills clinic?

Nope. The purpose of this event is to bring together a community of female riders for a fun weekend of riding together, eating together, and drinking together (if you're into that kind of thing). In some ride groups we may stop and session a few things for fun, but that’s about it...we're here to ride! Please feel free to ask us for reccommendations for skills clinics - we're big fans and have a large network of coaches that we work with.

What is a technical workshop?

SRAM technicians and other professional female mechanics will be leading optional hands-on bike maintenance and education sessions. We will cover the basics of bike maintenance (parts of the bike, safety checks, cleaning your bike, etc.) and more advanced topics (tubeless setup, suspension tuning, derailleur adjustments).

Are there age restrictions associated with this event?

Yep...you must be at least 21 years of age to attend this event.

What are my transportation options getting to the event?

Participants will need to get themselves to and from the Red Agave Resort at the start and end of the trip. Flying in? We recommend the Phoenix airport (PHX). Sometimes it looks easier to fly into Flagstaff (FLG), but check your layover - they often stop in Pheonix and the drive times are similar. From the airport you can rent a car or catch a shuttle straight to the Red Agave Resort in Sedona. We may be able to help you coordinate a ride, after registering, please inquire.

Do I need my own bike?

We have free Specialized demo bikes available all weekend - you may still want to bring your own bike, but if you are flying, or in the market for a new steed, a demo might be your best option. Demo bikes are first-requested, first served, and you must confirm bike/wheel reservation prior to the Retreat.

Do I need to bring my own food and beverages?

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided along with beverages and healthy snacks. We will be providing vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan options if requested.

What is the riding going to be like?

First things first: check out our event details, including our skill and fitness rating. The most difficult trails in Sedona have loads of rocky, technical climbing and descending with steep exposure. The intermediate trails are more tame but still with areas requiring an expert level of skill. There is a small handful of beginner level trails, however those are often spotted with difficult sections as well.

If you are concerned about the difficulty of trails, please contact us at hello@thisisroam.com

I'm a beginner rider, can I come?

We recommend that you have at least a year or two of mountain bike experience and/or have taken a clinic. If you're unsure of your riding level just shoot us an email or a phone call and we can talk it out. Newer riders with a good amount of fitness and a good attitude are encouraged to join.

I'm an intermediate rider, can I come?

Yes! You are going to love the challenge of the trails we will be riding!

I'm an advanced/pro rider, can I come?

Yes! We promise not to make you coach anyone or ride with the newbies, unless you want to. There are wicked challenging trails that we will make sure you have access to so you can get your shred on.

What time should I plan to arrive/depart?

To make the most of the weekend, most participants arrive between 10:00pm and noon on Friday, and depart Sunday just after lunch. Cant make it until later on Friday? No problem!

What should I bring? What is the schedule? Can you give me more details?

We will be sending you a weekend schedule, packing list and all sorts of details prior to your arrival.

I forgot something I need for riding or I broke my bike Friday afternoon, can you help?

Heck yeah. Pro mechanics will be on hand for minor fixes, unfortunately, we don't have a bike shop full of parts with us. Luckily there are a number of local shops that we can get you hooked up with!

I always ride with my husband, can he just come and hangout?

Nope. Sorry fellas, ladies only. We really can’t risk catching your husband's/boyfriend's/male sidekick's cooties at the event. If you really like riding with your man friend, check out our new CO-ED retreats!

My friend is signing up too; can we share a room?

Yes. Please notate who is joining you when you sign up and we will do our best to accommodate your request to stick together.

I want to stay forever! Do you provide accommodations prior to or after the event?

No, but feel free to ask us for recommendations.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Bring anything fun and legal, but please leave Fido and little Tommy Jr. at home.
