The girls are once again taking over the Kamloops Bike Ranch for the third annual Ranch Camp.  Join an accomplished collection of some of the industries best female professional riders / coaches and start your bike season off right.  

This weekend was designed to enhance the female rider who likes to shred with the boys (but still needs riding refinement to progress to where she wants) and welcomes the complete beginner still figuring everything out.   

Smaller numbers to higher coach to guest ratio and an informative Friday evening tech session are some of the niches qualities that gives this weekend a unique feel.  Detailed bike set up - including Suspension (SAG), understanding bar width and foot placement are a couple of the main tech topics to compliment the Kamloops Ranch and it's renown jumps and technical desert steeps terrain. 

For 2015 we're building on the previous 2 years to bring even more. Stoked !!

If you haven't been to the City of Kamlops Bike Ranch, you're missing out.  With permission from the City, Builder Brad has sculpted the perfect bike park giving the Kamloops a unique amenity (in addition to their baseball diamonds, swimming pools, etc) to advance any mountain bike rider - from a true newbie to a seasoned pro.  I mention this as the Kamloops Bike Ranch is a role model for any City wishing to add a mountain bike amenity to their general Parks Program.  Everyone I know loves gravity riding here, especially in the Spring and it's the perfect place to make you a better rider too ...

If you're travelling and need a place to stay, join the coaches at Accent Inns.  Their location is conveniently located near the Bike Cafe and near the Bike Ranch.  If you're new to Accent Inns, be prepared to be stoked.  Their attention to detail and genuine customer service along with their Bike Love Program, complete with outside bike wash station and Park Tool kit plus and how they welcome your bikes in the rooms makes you feel right at home.
