SHRED ON!

 The encouragement of your bike squad can make a massive difference. Come along and take over a local bike park for the day. 

This field trip has no instruction, simply a bunch of folks out for a day riding and exploring a new area. 

Field trips are guided by two leaders. These trained leaders are first aid certified and have completed SheShreds specific training on group management, trail communications, health & safety protocols and risk management.

It is the riders responsibility to ride within their ability and to practice independent progression on bike park features. 

Leaders will guide the group on trails in the area, and the bike park features based on a general route plan, but can decide to change course depending on conditions, weather or group energy levels. No one is left behind. 

Participants are responsible for travel arrangements and food. 

 

If you identify as female or non-binary, know that you are welcome. 

LOCATIONS

Hinton AB and Edson AB Bike parks. Both have no cost to use. 

Hinton Bike Park is 3.25 hours from Edmonton.

A convoy leaving Edmonton may be organized by the Leaders guiding the event.
