MEET OUR CREW
Our coaches are the core of SheShreds: their passion and love for bikes translate to effective instruction and lots of fun on the trails. Our coaches are all certified Professional Mountain Bike Instructors (PMBI) and our assistants hold other industry relevant cycling courses in preparation for PMBI coursework and skill requirements.
We work closely with Dirt Series, and you'll many of our coaches at their awesome weekend camps. Private coaching, through SheShreds is also available if that suits your learning style.
Our founder, Dee Turner is a Trek Women's Ambassador, with the mission of getting more women on more bikes more often! What an awesome gig!
If you are interested in developing as a rider and learning to coach, reach out and let us know. Requirements include general radness and always having trail snacks and bug spray.
Our Private Lesson Coaches
Some of our coaches make themselves available for private lessons. We do our best to accommodate your availability and your coach preference, but either way your private lesson will be paired with an awesome certified coach!
Marketing whiz, party planner, designer by day, speed demon by night! With a taste for downhill biking, Celeste knows all about overcoming fears and challenging your own limits. She's an avid weekend warrior so if you are looking to add some biking to your next summer vacation, Celeste would likely know awesome trails in the area! Super supportive and encouraging, she is great on the trail and with one-on-one instruction. As a PMBI Level 1 certified coach for two years, she has been coaching SheShreds' beginner and intermediate riders and helping coach clinics when she isn’t shredding the mountains every chance she can get. If you are looking to move from an experienced beginner to a confident intermediate - this is your gal.
Norma has been involved in the Edmonton Mountain biking scene for 8 years, including a leader and clinic instructor with Dirt Girls. She holds a PMBI Level 1 certification, re-certified in May 2019 so she's up to date with new coaching theories and techniques. Norma excels at fostering confidence in beginner riders by slowly introducing achievable small steps to grow to more challenging trails and features. She has been working with SheShreds beginner riders who have been flourishing under her guidance. Delightfully quirky, witty and with a hint of sarcasm, Norma will charm you into becoming the shredder you are meant to be!
This firecracker makes biking fun! A mum (to 2 teenage boys!), a realtor and a fun-spirit, Jodi has a supportive, infectious personality to help you through challenges on the trail and in between our ears. She’s been biking on her home trails fo Terwillegar for several year and has always been active - always trying new things. Jodi has had two years with her Professional Mountain Biking Instruction (PMBI) Level 1 certification, and has been with SheShreds working with our beginner riders, building confidence in our members every week. She's always up for a challenge and looking to improve her own riding - one of the best qualities a coach can have! You’ll find her chasing her boys down the trails – but you’ll probably hear her laughing before you see her!
Dee has been riding the river valley since 2010 and holds a PMBI Level 1 certification (re-certified in May 2019). With a background in downhill racing, backcountry snowboarding and triathlons, Dee realized that something was missing in Edmonton’s bike community: education-based women’s-specific group ride; so she did something about it and SheShreds came to life! Dee is your Trek Womens’ Ambassador and creates spaces for beginners to fall in love with this amazing sport with certified instruction and thoughtful encouragement. Along with her work with Trek, she also coaches for Dirt Series, a Whistler-based instruction weekend camps for mountain bikers, coaching riders from all over Canada and the US. While her time is limited for private lessons, she can be found leading SheShreds Mountain Adventure clinics in Golden, BC and in Edmonton’s river valley.
