On October 13th, the Bay Area LUNA Chix Team hosted an advanced women’s only mountain bike skills clinic with LUNA Pro Catharine Pedrel at Camp Tamrancho. Rated intermediate, Tamarancho is a 10 mile loop of fun technical single track, littered with switch backs. It’s currently one of the Bay Area’s hottest destinations thanks to the recently constructed flow trail— it is the prefect place to hone one’s skills. In addition, the clinic was a great opportunity for the women to learn advanced trail riding techniques and to help us with our fundraising efforts for the Breast Cancer Fund.
Around 2:30pm, we had finished the loop and headed back down to the parking lot where we finagled Jason to snap a group photo. Lots of progression and smiles— it was a great day!
The Team LUNA Chix Program includes LUNA Chix Local Teams, Sponsored Athletes and the LUNA Chix Pro Team. The LUNA Pro Team includes some of the world’s most winning professional athletes while the LUNA Sponsored Athletes include women who are excelling at their sport while also balancing motherhood, careers and training.
There are currently 22 Local LUNA Chix teams in the country. The Local Teams serve as community ambassadors, encouraging other women in their communities to learn a new sport, stay active and participate in the fun. Together the teams train, compete and support each other, while fundraising for LUNA’s non-profit partner, the Breast Cancer Fund. (click here for more information)
