Ladies, put your hands together because this camp is just for us! Have you been looking for a way to improve as a cyclist? Do you wish you were better equipped to handle longer rides? Do you have a bike but don’t ride as much as you’d like? And don’t we all want to have more fun cruising down the road with other women? Join me and the women of Liv for a 3-day camp experience that will help with all of these things! This women’s camp is for any female cyclist who wants to learn in an encouraging and fun group environment. With the support of Liv, we have an incredible weekend planned. What's included?

  • Coaching with Janel and assistant coach, regional Liv ambassador and Newbury Park Bike Shop Events Director, Dorothy Sullivan.
  • 3 days of gorgeous road rides that will take you from the beach to the hills.
  • Skills practice to improve your bike handling, group riding, and safety on the road.
  • Talks that will address your burning questions and build your cycling knowledge.
  • 8 group meals beginning with breakfast at check-in and concluding with late lunch on Sunday.
  • On-the-road mechanical support provided by the pros of Newbury Park Bike Shop.
  • Ride food and hydration to fuel the fun.
