Sign-up below to join Rebecca in her own backyard for the week leading up to the USAC Marathon Nationals. Rebecca has days of FUN activities planned that will get you ready to race (if you’d like) or will simply prepare you for epic mountain biking where-ever you may go.
All of the rides and activities are “no-drop” and all women are welcome. That said, you’ll need some experience on your mountain bike and even some single track before you join the fun on the trail rides.
