Friday, November 2: Arrive in Moab and meet up at the trailhead at 2:00pm for a nice warm up ride to get acclimated with the desert. Spin out the legs and get acquainted with the Moab style of trails. We will talk about basic body positioning and give tips for riding technical, rocky terrain. After the ride, we will head to our condo to check in, do some stretching, and have some delicious dinner! Later in the evening, we will have some mindfulness activities and late night laughs, and of course, treats to go around.
Saturday, November 3: Wake up to the smell of breakfast! We will enjoy a good meal and some stretching before loading up to take us to our trails for the day. As we make our way down, we will be stopping to session different features. These opportunities are the perfect time to improve on skills, and features that you find challenging. We'll have a hearty lunch packed as we'll plan to be out on the trails the majority of the day. When we conclude our riding session, dinner will be waiting for us as well as a hot tub soak. Don't forget your swimsuit! We will continue the evening with games and fun, and of course, treats will continue!
Sunday, November 4: We'll start the day packing up our belongings before we enjoy a healthy breakfast and one more ride for the weekend! Lunches will be prepared and packed before we leave the condo to head off to the trails. Depending on the group, we have a number of options of trails to practice on today. We can take on some more technical terrain, or cruise on a fun ride to finish off the weekend. We can't wait to enjoy this weekend with you!!
Meet your guides and ASDT MTB Directors
Julie lives in Moab, UT and loves mountain biking, nutrition, traveling and being outdoors. She combines her passions by guiding mountain biking and working as a nutrition coach. She loves anything that gets her outdoors but can mostly be found on her mountain bike- shredding local trails, bike packing through the desert or traveling overseas to explore new areas with her bike. In the time that she has been riding bikes, she has seen many women join the sport and the outdoor communities. She is extremely passionate about helping women get into mountain biking and the outdoors. Her favorite rides are taking self proclaimed beginner mountain bikers on a challenging ride and seeing them overcome their fears. She is excited to be a part of the ASDT community and looks forward to helping more women get on bike, into the outdoors, and to also share her passion for nutrition and health.
Joy started mountain biking in 1995 in the glorious California coastal region of San Luis Obispo, where they have some of the best riding on earth. I started racing cross country in 1999 for Cal Poly Wheelmen. I enjoyed the hard work and satisfaction of cross country riding for many years. The fun of riding up the hill was knowing that the sweetest singletrack was waiting at the top. After a while my bike handling skills improved and the descents became a roller coaster ride. Instead of fear I was inspired by challenging terrain. The adrenaline just took over. I gained self confidence knowing there was a gnarly trail out there that I could conquer. The self confidence I gained transfered to my every day life. The confidence helped my realize I could do what I put my mind to. I started racing downhill in 2005 and have found that my calling. The techniques I learned riding cross country for so many years is what made me a solid downhill-er. I took a two year break from racing to have my son and get him through his first year. November 2007 I started racing again at the expert level. I moved up to PRO in the winter of 2009. Over the year I have developed many more skills to pass on. It all starts with the right foundation though.
