MTB Basecamp Moab Retreat

March 29th - 31st
Sept 27th - 29th

If you have ever wanted to ride some of the ultra-classics of Moab with 9 other like-minded and MTB hungry women, then this is the retreat for you! Like many of our other retreats, this one-of-a-kind fun filled and supportive weekend is all about getting away, trying new things and sending new trails with new friends by your side! This specific retreat comes with the high adventure of Moab trails, along with additional comforts and taste. Not only will we have loads of fun in the warm sun, but we will also be staying as a group in a condo right in the heart of Moab. All meals are included, made from scratch, and healthy. Additionally, we will have daily stretch, nutrition talks, mindfulness discussion and more! This retreat is for riders looking to push their skills, have a love for riding, and enjoy the luxuries of a hot shower and clean bed!

What to expect on this Retreat


Having the comforts of home after a long day of getting dirty on the trails is sometimes a lot nicer than camping. For those, who would rather stay in a large luxury condo, this is perfect for you! We have multiple room options that cater to all, from large private master suites, to shared rooms with bathrooms and shared bathrooms. The kitchen will always be stocked with the best of snacks, late night munchies and a variety of delicious meals for all pallets. We have a pool & hot tub, and plenty of space for down time and couches for ultimate comfort.

Trail Time

We will spend the majority of each day riding on Moab terrain. We will send out survey's to each participant to make sure each rider is experienced to have an enjoyable time and have the most fun here in Moab. Here is a list of skills that are required to ensure your safety and that you will be capable of the trails selected for this retreat:

Intermediate is a wide range, but if you are comfortable on terrain that you have to maneuver the bike, and able to get off the ground with the bike that is an intermediate. If you can get your front wheel up, pump, manual, brake effectively, get air and control the bike, then you will be fine signing up for this retreat.

Day 1

You will arrive directly at the trailhead ready to ride Friday afternoon. You will meet the other awesome participants who are enjoying this retreat with you. Your guides for the weekend will be eager to meet you and show you their favorite trails you will be riding. This first trail which will be around 2.5 hrs of riding, will give them a first hand knowledge of each riders ability level to ensure that the remainder of the weekends rides are at your level to guarantee the best experience for you. When you finish, we will drive to the condo where dinner and cold drinks will be waiting for us! Each evening you have the choice to swim, mingle, watch some bike films and enjoy each others company!

Day 2

Wake up to the smell of warm drinks and hot breakfast! This will be our long day of riding so we will pack our bags with our lunches and plenty of water for the trail. Once we are all packed and bikes on the trailer we will make our way to a 4-5 hr saddle day with a break for lunch in between. Everyone will come back with smiles ear to ear and on cloud nine for riding some of the classics Moab has to offer. When you arrive to the condo, we will have a spread of drinks and appetizers while you shower and get ready for dinner. We have such a fun relaxing time this evening as we come together and talk about the fun we had this day.

Day 3

Our last day will continue our morning routine with warm drinks and a filling breakfast. We will pack up our personal belongings and make sure we are ready to hit the last of our trails for the day. Before we leave, we will all pack our lunches and load up our bikes. We save a special activity for this day before we leave the condo that is very well received and completes our weekend! Plan to ride 3-4 hours.
