The Canaan MTB School is another layer of our MTB Education Program, the School of Hard Rocks. (Including personal instruction, a 3-day intermediate Skills Training Weekend called the Michaux MTB School, and a Junior Summer Camp). The Ladies Weekend adds in a little extra learning and is a fantastic getaway: gaining some wonderful riding and personalized attention. If you are a strong rider and want to spend a weekend devoted to refining your skills in an amazing location with a bunch of great ladies, this is for you.
We are basing this school out of Canaan Valley and Davis, WV. I'll be the first person to tell you what a magical place it is there. Why? The list starts with amazing waterfalls, boreal forests, bogs, rainbows, and black bears. The trails range from small social trails to well developed National Forest trail systems, and a lot of in between. The "Moon Rocks" are a well known feature of Canaan riding. The terrain has small and large rocks of all shapes and makes.....and lots of them. Don't wear white, because Canaan is famous for its deep, black mud holes.

Lodging is included in the price of the camp (food is not). We'll reserve a couple "deluxe" cabins at Blackwater Falls State Park for you to stay in. They have full kitchens, but they don't have the best supply of cooking gear. There are several awesome places to eat in town, including HellBenders Burritos. There is a grocery store in town, and the bike shop is also open. We'll meet in town at 10am each morning.
Sue is an extremely talented rider, and has a very prestigious professional racing career to show for it.
