 Having never ridden in British Columbia, or even visited Canada, I didn't know what I was getting myself into. I drove up from Utah to join the ladies only Chilcotin trip and I have to say, it was worth the 20 hour drive.

I've never been surrounded by so many inspiring people and coaches. We had riders of all skill levels, and Sylvie and Emily were so patient with our group, they took the time to make sure each of us felt comfortable and learned some new skills to take home with us. I was super intimidated having never ridden with a large group of ladies, let alone in the back country, but all my fears and hesitations disappeared that first night when I got to know the women who I'd be spending three days biking with.

I became a much more confident rider over the three days and when I got back home on familiar trails I noticed a difference in how approached new lines that I wouldn't have in the past. Our trip was truly amazing and one that I'll be talking about for forever. S Lones, Utah - Explorer Camp 2017
