A woman MTB coach watches as a woman on a mountain bike rides toward her on a trail in the woods.

Join us for the 2023 CAMBA’s Women’s Mountain Bike Weekend North at the Mt. Ashwabay Trails overlooking Chequamegon Bay and Apostle Islands.  Open to all identifying as women, all skill levels are welcome.  Instruction provided by regional certified coaches experienced in teaching beginner, intermediate, and advanced riders of all ages who want to gain confidence on their bikes and improve their skills.  Beginning riders will learn basic bike handling skills for single-track riding, while advanced riders will expand their knowledge on the challenging Mt. Ashwabay trails.  All participants will receive swag, breakfast and coffee each morning, Saturday and Sunday lunch, and snacks.  Come on up and experience the rad trails, excellent food, the sweetest swag, and more fun than you can shake a stick at!
