“I just wanted to send a quick personal note to thank you, and all who helped, for putting on the retreat… It was well thought out, well organized, and just a really nice day. I learned a lot and it was nice meeting a bunch of unique and special ladies. I left feeling renewed, and more confident at the possibility of spending more time on a bike and on the beautiful mountain gravel roads.”
