    Ashley Q.
    I was lucky enough to attend a women's mountain biking retreat hosted by Momentum & Shredly in Park City, Utah and it was phenomenal. The coaches were all superb and helped my mtb skills grow exponentially in just a few days! My goal was to get wheels off the ground for jumping, which happened for me (woohoo!), and SO MUCH MORE. We got amazing drops and jumps and technical uphill riding instruction, and all of the basics were reviewed for good measure as well. A whole ton of fun and learning. Your riding will improve. Highly recommended!
