A multi-day cycling experience for WTFNB (women, trans, femme, non-binary) riders of all ages, disciplines, and ability levels in the Catoctin Mountain Region of Maryland. Directed by Alex Forte Howell of Dirty Kitten Racing/Dirty Kitten Gravel and her crew, Cat Camp is designed specifically for those who are interested in road cycling and gravel riding with a side of mountain biking. This is an opportunity to "get away" from the hustle and bustle of daily life, spend a few days riding your bike, and meet new people. There are a variety of supported rides (road, gravel, mtb), skills clinics, and training sessions. This is a unique cycling experience you won't forget!
Various locations in the Frederick, Maryland area.
We will be riding in both the valley and mountains around the area. The temperature changes drastically depending on elevation and location so be prepared. The lows can be in the 40s while the highs can be in the 60s.
