Ladies, are you ready to take your off-road riding to the next level?? Do you feel more comfortable learning riding skills in a female-centric environment, taught by a woman? Well this is the class for you! Join Pat Jacques and a field of other ladies as you learn the ins and outs of GS riding skills. If you are a BMW MOA member part of your cost may be covered through a Paul B Scholarship.  Check out this link for an application. 

Women are very different from men. We learn differently, we are physically different, we communicate differently, and we ride differently from men. ADVWomans training creates an optimal learning experience for women. We teach fundamental essential riding skills required to be safe, build skill and confidence, and have fun! By Women For Women means all our coaches are women. Class sizes are always small with multiple instructors to guarantee riders receive personal attention.

ADVWoman CBA (Chief BadAss) Pat Jacques is your lead instructor with ADVWoman Trainer and Colorado Enduro race champion Mandy Oldham assisting.

Essential skills we teach: How to handle the weight and height of big ADV bikes, how to leverage the strength in our hips and legs, mastering the clutch for finesse and control, proper body position to be safe and strong on long day rides, the easy ADVWoman way for tight turns, braking and speed control, how to ride obstacles like ruts, rocks, logs and more. We will spend most of the day doing skills and drills and end up with an easy fun local ride.

Riders must have the basic skills to ride a motorcycle and shift gears. Full face helmets, gloves, and heavy boots required. Body armor: shoulder, back, elbows, knee protection recommended. Skill levels will range from beginner to intermediate. We modify the intensity of drills to suit individual riders skill set. New riders looking for a solid foundation and experienced riders wanting to freshen up and brush up skills for the season are welcome.

Pat has developed a successful curriculum that is sure to produce some breakthroughs with riders of all levels. The class is all day so be sure to bring some water and something to eat (lunch is not provided) or there is always food available at the 49er vendors. Be ready to roll with your own insurance and all your protective gear - helmets, gloves, boots, and riding jackets are mandatory.
