WHAT FOLKS ARE SAYING

ROAM RETREATS

I'm one of those women that doesn't really like women's events... until I attended a Roam Event. Bikes! Beer! Friends! The crew accommodated everyone's skill levels and fun-o-meters so that there was always something to do (or not, for the chillers) and no one had to censor themselves. I was truly impressed by the professionalism and attention to detail of the staff. This was an incredibly inclusive atmosphere where everyone could be themselves around the fire or on the trails. It was so much fun-- can't wait until next year."

I drove 10 hours, through a blizzard, over 3 mountain passes and past many a vortex, fueled by caffeine and 80's hair-ballads to get to ROAM. Was it worth it? Abso-friggin-lootly!!! Sign me up for next year ... I can't wait to go back.

ROAM RETREATS

Amazing does not do this event justice. Ash and her team are phenomenal in their attention to detail, whether it's a delicious group dinner or making sure everyone gets help with their bikes. I love the support in choosing my level of fun and adventure, and the opportunity to make new like-minded friends."

- Penny, Roam Retreat @ Whitefish, 2016

ROAM BIKE FEST

I was thoroughly impressed with the amount of just plain unadulterated, unsucky, fun I had this past weekend. Going into a never-been-done-before event can go one of several ways, and I can't imagine this having gone any better. From the number of vendors and booths, the plethora of demo bikes, bazillions of miles of all levels of glorious red bike trails, and all the way through to the fiesta dinner and after party, I was never bored or wishing for something more. It was as if the crew had done it 100 times before. Ash and her crew mixed the perfect amount of professionalism and crazy. I can't wait t to come back and bring all the friends. ALL OF THEM."

STURDY DIRTY ENDURO SERIES

This was a great, well-put-together series! One of the most fun races I ever did! I was only able to compete on my home turf in Oakridge. Next year, I plan on doing the whole series! Heck, I even took podium in the sport class, who knew! My little daughter was so stoked to see so many women on bikes! She can't wait to be old enough to race. This was awesome. Way to go ladies, can't wait for next year!!"

ROAM RETREATS

Totally amazing. Epic. The most incredible weekend of my entire life."

ROAM RETREATS

My Roam Retreat has far and beyond provided the best bang for my buck in my mountain biking journey thus far. I have signed up for lots of women specific events in the past and I have to say that although the atmosphere always preaches inclusion and empowerment unfortunately that isn't always the reality. The Roam Events staff are some of the most genuine and welcoming women I have ever met. Ash & Andi as well as the other amazing women we were introduced to this weekend were so excited and heartfelt with each and every one of us attending, regardless of skill level or background, we were all welcomed with open arms (literally...greeted with bear hugs that couldn't be interpreted as anything less than genuine). It can be hard taking the step outside your comfort zone for an event like this, but it was so worth it and I can't wait to attend another retreat as soon as possible. I walked away with new friends, inspiration, confidence and memories to last a lifetime. Truly, thank you for dreaming up this perfect event and being such caring hosts!"

 I would absolutely recommend Roam Events to others. That is, as long as I've already got my spot!!! Thank you for an amazing women's mtb vacation!."

ROAM BIKE FEST

How good was Roam Bike Fest: Sedona? There’s-still-cactus-in-my-socks good. I knew Roam Bike Fest would be awesome, but even my already-high expectations were blown away. The event was rad, supportive, encouraging, fun, organized, and inspiring. I went alone and left with new life friends. See ya at the next one!"

-Sarah, Roam Bike Fest West, 2017
 

ROAM BIKE FEST

Going into Roam Bike Fest I was a little skeptical and didn’t know what to expect. The event completely blew me away by the atmosphere, the amount of women who came, and how smoothly everything ran!! It was so organized and just the best weekend with my lady shredders!!"

- Melissa, Roam Bike Fest West, 2017
 

ROAM BIKE FEST

Roam Bike Fest was AWESOME! Everything about the event was empowering and fun. The clinics were so helpful and tailored to people who don't know all the technical aspects of their bikes. The Industry Influencers panel was wonderful and I wish it could have gone on and on. The demos were amazing and the trails were so much fun. I can't wait to bring all my shredding girlfriends back next year!!"

ROAM BIKE FEST

This was the most confidence boosting, friendship building, bad ass weekend I’ve had all year! "

- Melinda, Roam Bike Fest West, 2017

 ROAM RETREATS 

Loved this trip. By far the best women's retreat I have been to. I truly got to choose my own adventure and the leaders and organizers were accessible and accommodating. This event was very well run and I have zero complaints. I will definitely do another one!"

- Diane, Roam Retreat @ Brevard, 2017
 

STURDY DIRTY ENDURO SERIES

It's like a party in the morning, and then another party in the afternoon, with a little bit of no-pressure racing in between!"

ROAM RETREATS

This is my second Retreat and it is just amazing. Meeting and riding with women from all skill levels is so cool. Having the options to ride with different groups depending on how "shreddy" you feel, is also very nice. The friends I have made at both events will probably last a life time and give me reasons to go check out riding in other parts of the country."

- Teresa, Roam Retreat @ Sedona, 2017
 

ROAM RETREATS

This event was a blast. It was well organized, high energy, and brought a lot of really rad ladies together for a few days of sun and singletrack. The women in attendance ranged from beginner riders to the best of the sport and everyone between. It was an honor to get to ride with and learn from each and every one. Ash and her whole crew are a riot, and nothing was dull, quiet, or boring. What a cool way to get to make new friends, ride rad trails, and explore all the different parts of this phenomenal sport"

The weekend was incredibly well planned. From the short ride Friday afternoon, to the grand finale meeting Sunday morning, it was exactly the weekend I needed."

- Carey, Roam Retreat @ Brevard, 2017
 

ROAM RETREATS

Rad weekend!! You can ride as much or little as you want with ample opportunity to get fully blown out or just kick back at camp with a beer and a new buddy. Super laid back, great food and top-notch hospitality without the pressure of an over-packed itinerary. Relax. Get rowdy. Ride bikes. Make friends. Roam. Retreat." 

- Katie, Roam Retreat @ Oakridge, 2017
 

STURDY DIRTY ENDURO SERIES

"Absolutely funnest race you'll ever volunteer for."

- Dave, Sturdy Dirty Enduro Series, 2017

ROAM BIKE FEST

Roam Fest was rad. The riding was a blast and the views were stunning. It was amazing to meet and ride with a ton of lady crushers. Usually I am the one girl bringing up the rear of a group of guys. It was such a nice change to be able to ride with a group closer to my abilities. It was also an incredible party with a bunch of well organized, fun and informative off bike activities. I will definitely look for future Roam events."

 ROAM RETREATS 

I was really nervous about this weekend--I tend to be introverted and self conscious of my riding abilities. I honestly didn't even worry about these things about 10 minutes after I arrived. No drama, I easily found my place in the line during rides, and there was nothing but encouragement and fun from the whole group. I will definitely attend more retreats." 

- Stacy, Roam Retreat @ Oakridge, 2017
 

ROAM BIKE FEST

If you are looking for a fun, supportive, welcoming place to ride, connect and have one hell of a good time without the pressures of needing to be the "cool girl", ROAM is where it's at. Hi vibrations, inspiration and all the hugs. Don't think too hard. Just do it!"

- Sabrina, Roam Bike Fest West, 2017

If you get a chance to sign up for one of these events, TAKE IT!"

I had a great time shredding with new friends! I can't believe the friendships made in such a short amount of time. Bikes bring cool folks together! Thanks so much to our hosts for creating the most fun bike trip I've been on in awhile!"
