What to bring:
Please bring your bike, shoes appropriate for biking (flat on the bottom or clip), hydration pack or water bottle, a tube, tools for on the trail, helmet, gloves, pads and wear clothing appropriate for biking. Please take note of the weather for that day as Pemberton can be extremely hot or could be raining. Either way, pack accordingly. We recommend sunscreen and bug spray, and if you'd like to take a post ride dip in the lake bring a swimsuit too!
Snowline Catering is providing a light lunch consisting of a vegetarian quinoa salad with house made salad dressing. There will be some snacks and fruit as well. For the après we will be having tacos on corn tortillas with a vegetarian and meat option. Served with hand cut signature salsa, cabbage and lettuce. Please bring anything you need in addition to this menu to fuel and hydrate you for the day.
- Liv Giant Bikes is graciously sponsoring BIKE CAMP and will be there with demo bikes for you to try. There are only 6 available so come early if you are interested in a demo to get that sorted before 10:00am. If you miss out in the morning, there will be another opportunity after lunch.

- And of course we will have swag donated from Muscle Milk, RaceFace and more!

And me! Bree Thorlakson, I am super passionate about biking being approachable to anyone who wants to learn. I have coached for Dirt Series, Sweet Skills and WORCA. I founded the women's Bike Club in Pemberton which runs weekly social rides for women to meet other women riders and encourage each other to rip!
