I'm flying from out of the area. How do I get myself and my gear to Sedona?

Not to worry, most participants are flying. We recommend skipping the car rental (unless you really like your independence) and booking a shuttle. $53/each way will get you from Pheonix Sky Harbor to the Village of Oak Creek (where the festival venue is located). Your bike will need to be in a travel bike bag or bike box to be transported on the shuttle. Learn more here.

Can I ship my bike?

Yep! Check out more details on shipping your bike hereNote: please do not ship your bike to Red Agave Resort...they have no place to store bikes and will have to refuse shipment. 

Where do I stay?

The Kona Supremes will be hosting an official Roam MTB Fest campout at Cesar Crossing Campground. Camping is included in your festival pass but restricted to the first 60 women who signup. Camping not your thing? There are plenty of hotels, B&Bs, and Airbnb/VRBO rentals within a few minutes of the festival venue (Red Agave Resort). Learn more here

Can I bring my man friend?

Sorry fellas, ladies only.

Even if he is really really nice?

We bet he is. Still no.

I'm a (beginner, intermediate, advanced) rider, will there be rides for me?

Absofriggin'lutely. We won't sugar coat it, everything in Sedona is, well, harder than we are used to back at home...but it is also more fun! The majority of riding in Sedona is intermediate/advanced, but there are some great beginner-friendly trails just across the street from our venue!

Will there be guided rides?

There will be several options to ride in a group, and we will have a rad crew of local ladies out riding with us, but we will not have professional guides. The trails are well marked, and with the help of a map or an app like TrailForks/MTBProject, it's quite challenging to get lost...at least for very long.

Is there lodging available at The Red Agave Resort?

Currently all rooms are booked for the weekend. Reach out to us if you want an update as the festival gets closer as reservations may change. 

What's the deal with the Saturday Night Fiesta? 

There's something special about breaking bread (err..tortillas?) with a group of like-minded individuals. We don't want this weekend to be like any run-of-the-mill festival; we're excited to have unique opportunities, like a Mexican food themed group dinner, to help you connect with fellow lady shredders, professional athletes, and badass women in the bike industry. Mega taco bar, drinks, and revelry included. 

Do I need to bring my own bike?

Kinda...everyone will have access to demo bikes, but we cannot guarantee bike availability in your preferred brand, bike model, or size

  • Option 1 Bring your own bike: Guaranteed ride time. Costs? Shipping/baggage+build

  • Option 2 Rent a bike: Guaranteed ride time. Costs? Cost of rental

  • Option 3...eff it! I'm taking my chances with demo: No guarantees for ride time. Costs? None!

How do I get my bike to the Festival?

If you are flying, check out our friends at Bike Flights for hassle-free bike shipping. It is safe, inexpensive, and a hell of a lot less stressful than flying with your giant bike box.  Note: We cannot accept bike shipment at the festival venue. PLEASE DO NOT SHIP BIKES TO THE RED AGAVE RESORT.

How do I demo a bike?

Demo's (aka test rides) are available to all festival pass holders! See our schedule for start and end times for demo each day. Demo's are first-come first-serve and it is requested you keep your test ride to under two hours (so everyone else has a chance to give a bike a try!). You will need to bring a helmet, ID, and credit card (for security hold) to demo a bike. 

Demo bikes will come with an option of flat pedals, shimano spd, or crankbros.

Ride something else or want to bring your own pedals? All good to bring them, just dont forget your pedals when you are done riding!

What should I pack?

All the usual crap and gear. Helmet, bike shoes, riding clothes, layers, rain jacket, puffy jacket, etc. Costumes? Oh yes, that too. The weather and temperature in October can vary wildly throughout the day from rainy/very cold to sunny and warm. Plan and pack accordingly!

Flats or clipless?

Eff yeah FLATS! We are confident and comfortable riding clippless pedals (aka, the ones you clip into...which totally makes sense calling them clipless), but we actually ride flats full-time in Sedona. The trails can be rocky, loose, exposed, and technical - a combination that makes us more confident and have more fun riding with flat pedals.

Didn't find what you are looking for? Ask us something. Anything. Seriously.
