Babes In Balance

Babes in Balance Registration for 2021 postponed at this time. Please continue monitoring social media and the website for further information.

On June 21-23, 2019 we will be hosting out fifth annual Babes in Balance Women's Mountain Bike Retreat. *The focus of this camp is to provide a safe and positive weekend of mountain bike instruction for women of all skill levels by women with high skill and coaching levels. *The weekend runs from Friday evening until Sunday late afternoon and includes an action packed experience full of yoga, bike maintenance, skill riding sessions, injury prevention workshops, and guided rides. Evening fun includes a Saturday dinner with live music. Free day time could involve a refreshing swim in Kager Lake or a paddle with your boat of choice. Ride Burns' passionate volunteers in conjunction with our Burnt Bikes sponsor provide shuttle service up the mountain, first aid stations, and trail guide support. Newly certified local instructors (partially sponsored by Burns Lake and District Community Fund) will be coaching the majority of the beginner and intermediate riders while more experienced out of town coaches will be leading the high intermediate and advanced groups. 

Cost is $200 for Ride Burns members and $240 for non-members. The zone 4 link for registration will go live April 2nd. The $40 membership fee is non-refundable.
