About the Retreat


All MTB Skill Levels Welcome (Beginner to Advanced)

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 elite instructors, and delightful evening activities each night.

This retreat is truly all levels, suitable for everyone from beginner riders to long-time shredders. 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.

The Ultimate Mulitsport Retreat

We will begin each day with a peaceful morning yoga session lead by Angela Houghton at Sundari Yoga & Wellness Studio. In addition, you will enjoy a half day of SUP (stand up paddle boarding) instruction lead by Natali Zollinger, an 18-year river guide and an accomplished professional whitewater stand up paddle athlete, on the iconic Colorado River.

Meet Your SUP Instructor

Natali is a desert girl at heart. From her home base in Moab, she’s built the perfect surf-and-turf lifestyle.

As an 18-year river guide and an accomplished professional whitewater stand up paddle athlete for Badfish SUP, Natali spends most of her year on the river. Whether it be guiding rafts down the Grand Canyon or competing in some of the top whitewater SUP races in the country, Natali loves all things water.

In addition to being a river rat, Natali is also a local fitness/spin instructor for her company BEATS CYCLE, hosts a river podcast called "Eddy Out" and co-manages one of the most popular restaurants in Moab called 98 Center.

She likes to think of herself as a "Jane of all Trades," spreading time between her many passions throughout the year helps keep her physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually fit.

What to Expect

The trip is approximately 8 miles down the infamous Colorado River. You’ll paddle through flat water, riffles, and possibly a few rapids. On the water, we’ll practice skills and drills, take some time to float and enjoy the scenery, and do a little floating yoga/fitness and stop for a quick snack/stretch.

What you’ll learn:

We’ll cover everything from how to stand up on your board to how to charge the whitewater and everything in between, including:

  • River Hydrology
  • Local Geology
  • River Etiquette
  • In-Depth Safety Talk
  • River Gear
  • River Strokes & Stances

Meet Your Yoga Instructor

Angela has been a mountain biker since before there was front suspension. She guided mountain bike tours and spent time as a mountain bike instructor in Moab and Western United States.
 
Angela began practicing yoga in earnest over 20 years ago. She gravitates towards an alignment-based practice with plenty of room for philosophy and play. She strives to stay humble and curious in her practice so that she can continue to grow as a student and teacher.
 
Angela is also a mama and horsewoman. She looks forward to practicing and playing on and off the mat with you!

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!

PACKING LIST

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. 🚵
