    Amazing retreat and wonderful coaches!
    I had an absolutely wonderful time at the women's mountain bike retreat hosted by Momentum Mountain Biking. I walked away from the weekend with enhanced foundational skills, a more advanced skill set to tackle technical riding, judgement free... coaching, and great connections with women who empower each other. 10/10 would recommend this experience to all levels of women mountain bikers.read more
    Had awesome retreat with this crew!!! Loved every second and am a totally different rider now!!!
    Excellent professional mountain bike adventures to be had with Momentum Mountain Biking. I attended the women's Shredly weekend clinic and was treated to beautiful rides with excellent instructors. Everything was well organized and super duper fun.... I left the weekend having fallen in love with mountain biking again.read more
    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!read more
