    Johnny_5 and I have been tossing around the idea of doing a women's riding weekend for a while, and thought heck, no time like the present.:D So, we are pleased to announce our upcoming Chick Fest 08. :clap

    Last day to order shirts or sign up for food is this Sunday, July 13th!

    When: July 17-20, 2008
    Where: Near Salida, CO

    The goal of this weekend is above all to have a good time, meet people, and hopefully learn something too. We're both pretty dirt focused, so we're designing the activities around dirt, but all are welcome!



    Here's the updated schedule:

    If you'd like to simplify your life, we've decided to provide breakfast on Friday, Saturday and Sunday plus dinner on Friday and Saturday for a requested donation of $60 per person. To help judge the right amount of food to get, let me know if you'd like to chip in for the community meals. You can paypal to femmemoto at gmail dot com, bring cash or a check to the camp site, or PM me for a mailing address.

    We've also decided that the size of the group now justifies a couple of port-a-potties.

    Thursday, July 17th:
    Roll into camp, set up and socialize. We'll be handing out maps and info for the weekend, so come find us!

    Friday, July 18th:
    10am-12pm: Basic dirt skills clinic followed by a short trail ride.
    Afternoon: Riding! Or sunning, or sleeping, or whatever strikes your fancy. We'll have a couple of rides organized for beginning and intermediate riders, or feel free to explore on your own.
    6pm (ish): We'll be dishing up dinner, Mexican style. Break out the sombreros, amigas!

    Saturday, July 19th:
    10am-12pm: Basic dirt skill clinic followed by a short trail ride. We'll have half day rides organized for beginning and intermediate riders, or all day routes if you'd like to gather a group to explore. We'll also have some dual sport loops organized. If you're interested in leading a group, let me know!
    4pm-5pm: Basic maintenance clinic. We'll go over bike setup, pre-ride check, basic ongoing maintenance and the dreaded tire change.
    6pm (ish): Cowboy cookout. Chaps and spurs optional.

    Sunday, July 20th:
    Half day rides will be going out in the morning.

    But wait, there's more!
    • There will also be plenty of co-ed, non riding activities, like camp fires, eating, and drinking. And whatever other co-ed activities happen in tents after drinking will remain unmentioned.:freaky
    Tshirts now available!

    Thanks to Lucky_Devil from twowheelfemales and Hayduke, we have fantastic t-shirts available for $18. We're getting a limited run made, so let me know your size. PM me for payment details.

    "Can I bring my significant other/guy friend/son/whatever" you ask? YES! Guys are welcome, but there's a catch. :dealAs is an unfortunate side effect of posting events like this on the interweb, there is a chance that we may get a creep contingent who show up hoping to pick up on the ladies. So if you're a guy, you need a pass, i.e. a reference from one of the ladies who will be attending (and each lady is not limited to only one guy reference). On that note, the planned rides and clinic are for the ladies only. But don't feel too left out boys. We'll have some routes scouted for you too, or you can explore on your own.

    I'm in! Now what? If you'd like to attend, let me know by posting here or IM me. We'll need your name and email address, and we'll distribute the exact location via email as we get closer to the event.

    He's just looking for a free pass! :lol3


    Sounds like fun. I don't own a dirt bike yet, but I'd love to bring my Ninja and get out on the road.

    Playz-n-Mud? Charla? Will you be my sponsor? Pleeeeeeeeze? I'll bring a gal who'd definitely take advantage of the instruction. I need to teach her to get out of 2nd gear, but WTH?

    Kidding aside, this is a GREAT IDEA!!! :freaky

    Kudos for getting the women involved, esp. riding clinics away from us guys.

    Seriously :clap

    So what is the minimum chick age if a mother daughter pair want to go. Is 14 okay? Don't know if she will agree to go unless some other teens are going.:ear

    As most of you all know I am a certified Pillow fight referee, I am a member in good standing with the NAPFL (north american pillow fighting league).
    NAPFL, promotes fun first and foremost, secondly, fairness, everyone has to have the correct equipment and of course, as always, Safety third!
    Let the games begin!

    Deep, are you sure you want to bring your young daughter (or wife for that matter) around these people? "Pass" or no pass...I mean seriously!?






    Anna and I would love to come, sadly we will be working that weekend.

    I think 14 is fine, but there will be alcohol in attendance and some general carousing. As long as you're comfortable as a parent, she's welcome to attend!

    Bring it! We'll have some good road rides scouted too, and at the very minimum you can hang out and make fun of all us crazy dirt riders. :freaky
