"Shannon is such an awesome teacher! Her patience and ability to make each person at every skill level feel confident in themselves, truly sets her apart from other instructors. Shannon really took the time to thoroughly teach each skill. Her positive energy, her passion for the sport, and her desire to want to help other women find their footing, made this a truly genuine experience. I highly recommend any of Shannon's series."

The mountain biking universe stars aligned for me when I met Shannon. She was instrumental in helping me mentally shift how I wanted to approach obstacles that I had decided were just too scary to try. 
Because my confidence is growing, so is the joy."

I am so grateful for my retreat experience! Shannon and her team were so positive and fun to be around! I was hesitant to jump into mountain biking and had doubts that I wanted to continue the sport, but this experience completely changed my mindset! I learned the skills to gain confidence riding and I gained a community of empowering women to ride with. We are stronger together and I’m so happy I said YES."

Shannon's mountain bike retreat was a game changer for my bike confidence and skills. I've been to multiple other women's bike clinics and have never come away feeling this excited and accomplishing as much as I did with Shannon as a coach. Whether you are an experienced or beginner rider if you want to improve your BIKE skills this is the retreat! IT IS ALSO going to impact my mindset AND SELF-TALK well into the future and given me a new perspective. Thank you Shannon!"

If you have any fear or anxiety around mountain biking, this is your pathway to success. I've had a few crashes which can fill me with hesitancy on TECH features. I not only learned how to climb up ledges, we also worked through my anxiety on descents by practicing mindset and visualization techniques. Now I'm enjoying myself on the bike SO MUCH MORE and riding more features!"

Page, Denver, CO

I am so grateful that I said "yes" to this retreat and pushed into my stretch zone.  I was expecting my riding to improve, sure - And it did!  I was not expecting to feel so bonded to these amazing women after just a few short days together.
The support and coaching is genuine and top notch. it has changed my riding and mindset for the long haul."

My stoke was pretty high after I confidently rode up a 2 ft ledge. Totally upped my tech riding and made new friends to keep the stoke going!"

"Shannon is a fantastic coach. I found it extremely helpful for her to analyze my technique on the trail and with video review, so she could give me customized tips.
Plus, shannon's unrelenting positive demeanor is infectious; a great reminder that learning and practicing is fun!”

Claire, Lander, WY

I had a 4-hour lesson with Shannon and it was wonderful!  She called me before to learn about my skill levels and goals. she chose trails that aligned with my goals and my skill level. Shannon was able to point out things that I could change to help me tackle obstacles, and she was patient as I worked through trail features.  I most wanted to work on drops, and I made a lot of progress in one lesson!  To top it all off, Shannon is a lovely human who is just fun to be around. I felt like I had a new friend at the end of the lesson 🙂 Highly recommend!"
