Mountain Bike Coach
Jenn is a BICP Level 2 certified mountain bike coach and has been coaching youth and adults for over 10 years. Jenn's main goal in life is to get more kids and women on bikes. She loves pushing the limits and helping other riders gain confidence on the bike. Be warned because Jenn's optimism and positivity is contagious!
Ever heard of the Rowdy Gowdy? Yep, she's the vision and creator behind that incredible women's bike camp in Wyoming!
She believes that any day on two wheels is a good day, especially if friends are involved.
We should also mention that Jenn is a rad and extremely skilled mountain biker (a.k.a. rockstar) who loves taking the steep lines and when you ride with Jenn, you'll notice she has the most infectious laugh and never stops smiling.

Mountain Bike Coach
Lisa lives for epic adventures and has always taken the road less traveled. She's a kind, brave and humble all around bad ass. There's zero doubt that Lisa loves to ride bikes!
She has been sharing her enthusiasm for 10+ years, got certified before all the cool kids were doing it, and has coached the whole gamut from grommets (including her own two) high school racers, college students, and adults. She got certified to coach back before all the cool kids were doing it.
Lisa is inspiring and strong (we've put rocks in her pack to slow her down) and her eyes light up with passion when she coaches. We're grateful she sharing her gift with each of you!
"My bike is my adventure, it is my joy, my challenge. It connects me to others and brings me to my most authentic self."
