About the Retreat

Perfect for Intermediate to Advanced Riders!

We’ll kick off the retreat with a meet and greet Thursday evening, followed by three days of yoga, mountain biking through breathtaking scenery with Momentum Mountain Biking's elite instructors, and delightful evening activities each night.

Intermediate and advanced riders will find this retreat to be the perfect balance of skills development and smile-inducing group rides. We’ll split up into small riding groups sorted by skill level to ensure that everyone has just the right amount of challenge and the most fun possible.

Daily Yoga Bliss

We will begin each day with a peaceful morning yoga session before hitting the trails.

About Avalanche Ranch

Avalanche Ranch is best described as a Rocky Mountain Picture Post Card in the Heart of Colorado. This pastoral setting offers the beauty and peace of an earlier era. Situated at 7,000 feet overlooking the Crystal River with Mt. Sopris towering above at 12,953 feet, the views are more dramatic than you can imagine.

Designed around the natural landscape and rock formations of the dramatic Crystal River Valley, Avalanche Ranch features three natural hot spring pools in a tiered layout. Cascading from one to the next, each of the beautiful hot springs is situated at a level that provides limited visibility from one to the next. The largest pool is fed by a 3-foot waterfall forming a warm screen of water in front of a rock grotto. The three hot springs on the property provide year-round, day and night availability to retreat guests and limited paid public access by reservation.

Retreat attendees will stay in the cozy log cabins, built between 1890-1950’s and since renovated, and covered wagons (yes, you read that right!) turned lodging space. Each has a different décor and packed with personaility providing a truly unique and unforgetable experience.

Below is a list of items we highly suggest you bring with you on your retreat experience. We do ask you have these items already, when you show up for your activity. Plan to pack clothing for a vareity of weather conditions (hot, windy, cold, wet), but don't worry if you "forget" something because the SHREDLY trailer will be fully stocked!


1. Mountain Bike & Helmet
Please make certain your bike is in good mechanical condition. If you aren’t sure, we recommend having it tuned by your favorite mechanic so it is in top form. There are also high-quality demo bikes available for rent in all of our locations.

Note: If renting a bike and you use clipless pedals (meaning you ride clipped in), please bring your pedals and shoes.

Note: At this time we can only accommodate electric mountain bikes in private offerings with Momentum Mountain Biking.

2. Hydration Pack & Snacks
You will want plenty of water. Please come with a hydration pack or backpack filled & ready to consume before each ride. Bringing a water bottle with an electrolyte drink mix can also be nice.

Bring any snacks you may want in your pack for on the trail. We’ll have delicious trail snacks and an electrolyte hydration mix for you each day, provided by our snacks and hyrdration sponsor, Skratch Labs.

3. Tools for a Flat

Spare Tube. Please bring a spare tube that fits your bike’s tire size. Flats happen! Don’t worry if you’ve never changed a flat – we’ll teach you!

Tools. Our instructors carry tools for minor trailside repairs, but we strongly recommend that you own and bring your own trailside repair kit. At a minimum, this kit should include a pump, tire levers, and a multi-tool. These items will come with a rental bike. Let us know if you’d like help with suggestions on what else to include in your kit!

4. Flat Pedals
For off-trail skills and drills, it can be helpful to ride with flat pedals (skate shoes, or similar, work well with flat pedals). Bring your clipless pedals too if you are used to riding in them. Make sure you have two separate pairs of shoes – the ones that go with your clipless pedals and the ones that go with your flat pedals.

5. Appropriate Clothing

Our area is fortunate to receive all kinds of weather! From wet and cold to very hot and very dry. Because of this we ask our cyclists be packed and prepared for any weather. So yes, please pack the rain jacket even if it doesn’t look like rain. Don't forget to pack a swimsuit or other preferred water clothing and shoes for stand up paddle boarding in.

6. Riding Gloves, Leg and Arm pads

We ask everyone to arrive with bike gloves.

Armor (Leg & Arm Pads) are optional but can be nice for protection and confidence building. Armor may also be available for rent from some of the bike shops in town. Shoot us an email if you’d like to know what shops to try.

7. Sunscreen and Sunglasses

We're all about that sun-protection life and keeping our eyes safe.

8. Adjustable Seat Post 

Though not required, we do recommend them for increased safety and fun.

9. Gratuity

Tipping your coach is greatly appreciated. We kindly ask you be prepared to do so after your activity.

10. Bring Your Stoke

Because we are about to have a heck of a time on the trail! It’s going to be awesome. 🚵

Arrival: Please plan on checking in to Avalanche Ranch on Thursday (8/31) and joining us for a meet & greet between 4-6:30 PM.

Departure: Participants who did not book an additional night’s stay Sunday night will check out Sunday morning before we head out on rides. Rides will end early Sunday afternoon, and transportation will be provided back to the hotel.
