“This trip was life-changing for me. I have always wanted to try mountain biking but never had the confidence or know-how to give it a go. I had such an awesome time riding with all of you and learned so many new skills that I will keep building upon. I have even signed up for a local MTB skills clinic this January and I am joining a local women's group that goes on ride and does skills & maintenance clinics together.”
