3rd Annual WoW Camp!


Women Mountain Bikers are ...Bad A$$ ;)

Women mountain bike together to build strong minds, strong bodies, and strong relationships. We laugh together, support and encourage each other, we keep each other safe but mostly we have FUN! And we love seeing women biking on the trails!

This is going to be another AWESOME event! The difference is that this will be ALL weekend!! We will be riding and learning, camping and eating, laughing and exploring bike trails at Silver Lake Park! Never ridden there? That's ok too. We will teach you everything you need to know to be successful!

It’s a full weekend of mountain biking for women. We will get to ride the way we want to ride: where women mountain bikers can do step-by-step skill building, build more confidence, get to know their bike, find their flow, learn with other women in a safe and structured environment and have fun on over 10 miles twisty trails in beautiful Salem Lakes, WI.

This camp is geared towards beginners and intermediate riders!!

After this weekend you'll look at features and say, "Yeah, I can do that!". But most of all, you'll have lots of laughs and tons of fun!
