Women's Bike Camp Weekend for Beginners

If you've ever wondered why bicyclists wear those ridiculously tight black spandex shorts (or secretly wanted to yourself), how anyone could possibly need more than 20 gears on a bike when cars only have 4 or 5, if AAA will come change your flat tire when you go for a bike ride, then....you need to come to bike camp.

This peaceful and tranquil retreat sits far off the beaten path on the banks of the Old Saco River where you can enjoy magnificent views of the White Mountians, meadows, and forests. Feel free to check in any time after 3 pm and relax next to the river, kayak its course, or go for a hike...it's all available to you here. In the evening, we will meet before dinner where you’ll meet the camp counselors and discuss the weekend's highlights.

DAYS 2 and 3: We will begin each day with a hearty breakfast then spend the morning discussing the basics - from learning about different types of bicycles to bike fit to shifting to basic repairs.  We will also discuss weather and the environment and gear appropriate to riding your bike at any time of the year.  Other topics include bicycle touring, commuting, and trip planning/preparation. You will also have a chance to see and experience different types of bikes. In the afternoon, we will ride our bikes along the flat and scenic backroads of western Maine.
