Have you ever wondered what it feels like to fly? Come check it out at the Utah Olympic Park with SheJumps and Fly Freestyle! This year, two of the four camps will be Youth Initiative events with participants from local Boys & Girls Clubs of Salt Lake City.
The all-day camp price of $55 includes all instruction and equipment. Compared to the average public price of $150, this is a steal of a deal! The day starts with basic trampoline instruction from professional skiers as well as staff from FlyFreestyle. After learning the basics on the trampoline, participants suit up in ski boots and wetsuits to try their skills on the ramps. This world-class facility is an amazing place to learn new tricks on your skis or snowboards, with the comfort of landing in aerated water to reduce the surface tension of the water. Endless “powdery” landings!
No matter which day you participate in the camps—or all four sessions—the money raised for these courses goes towards creating more Youth Initiatives in the Intermountain region of SheJumps.

We are offering a good form running clinic followed by a trail run Sunday, August 11th. The run coaches from Gazelle Sports are going to show us how to run efficiently, safely, and strongly on the Al Sabo trails just outside of Kalamazoo. This an opportunity to learn a few things about trail running, meet some outdoorsy ladies, and get in a great workout. The clinic and run is designed for everyone. If you are already an experience trail runner, bring a friend who is just learning and share your knowledge with us. If you have never been on the trails, this clinic and run is a way to get started! If you want to just come and learn about trail running, but hike instead of run, that is cool too! Space is limited to 15 people for the clinic and the run is open to anyone.
Finally, please consider bringing a $5-$10 donation. The money will be used to fund future shejumps events in our region!
Check out and share the the event on facebook!

After I tore my ACL skiing this past winter I developed a lot of lower back pain from the disparity of strength between legs. I found that yoga was one of the only things I could do to alleviate the pain as I was working to build my strength back. After approaching my good friend Erin Walton about teaching a weekend yoga event, the stage was set for the first Jump Into Yoga event.
What an extraordinary weekend! Women came from all over Colorado to the Dancing Moose yurt near beautiful Gould, Colorado. With support from our amazing local sponsors the women fueled up on yummy Noosa Yoghurt, as they lounged in their rad new Jen-ai Oarwoman skirts complete with girafficorns. Even better was that everyone had a chance to connect with themselves, nature, and other adventurous women. Yoga brought us to the yurt, but a hike, some journaling, and lively discussion brought us together as friends. As a moose and her calf strolled in front of the yurt, we were reminded how lucky we were to be spending some precious time in nature and our hike filled with blooming columbines reiterated that.
Attendee Elissa Hoffert said, “There is nothing quite like stretching into a yoga pose and viewing the mountains in the background. I found connecting with women with whom I would have never crossed paths exhilarating. As a woman who loves the outdoors but has fairly limited experiences with them, I found myself enriched and challenged by the stories that others shared. I left feeling renewed and ready to find ways to get my friends outside together.”
The woman went through three different vigorous yoga classes followed with some journaling where they were challenged to consider what brings their lives in and out of balance. Instructor Erin Walton also treated the women to an introduction to Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga while another attendee, Annie Kerr, owner and designer of Wild Balance, surprised everyone by gifting each participant with a pair of her beautiful earrings.
As we headed away from the yurt, I considered how wonderful it was to have a chance to practice yoga with such supportive SheJumper sisters in the fresh mountain air and I recommitted myself to finding balance as I work to continue jumping into my goals. Weekends like this are what make all the hard work behind each SheJumps event worth it and it could not have happened without our great sponsors. Thanks again to Jen-ai, Noosa, Wild Balance, Vitamin Cottage, Yoga Luna, and REI!

The NorthEast Girls got out this past weekend for a day of mountain biking in Stowe, Vermont. Despite weeks of relentless rain, we were able to ride a fun set of well-drained, intermediate trails in Stowe’s Cady Hill Forest. Managed by the Stowe Land Trust and the Stowe Mountain Bike Club, the trails at Cady Hill Forest are well-built with a few beginner level trails and a host of intermediate and advanced trails. With some sweet laps under our belts, we enjoyed a sunny BBQ and gear giveaway.
Thanks to our partners, Kate’s Real Food Bars, Vapur Water Bottles, Mocean Mate Energy Tea, and the SkierShop in Stowe, Vermont, for making Get The Girls Out-Stowe Mountain Bike so much fun!
Stay tuned for our upcoming road and mountain biking events in New Hampshire and Vermont! If you want to jump in with SheJumps, give us a holler! Contact Autumn at firstname.lastname@example.org and check out the SheJumps Clubhouse.
How many times have you found yourself bike wrestling? You know that, get-back-in-place-you-stupid-bike-tube-magigger-err feeling right before your tire iron slips off the rim of your wheel and you slice open your knuckles? That’s usually the moment just before a friendly, smiling, mechanically minded fellow biker shows up behind you on the trail and gives you a few helpful hints about how to get your tube back into place without the struggle. Don’t you wish that guy showed up a few moments earlier, before the blood and frustration? Even better, what if you could carry him around in your jersey pocket to reference whenever a bike repair need arose?
Now you can! Hero Kits have put together well thought out bike repair kits. The folks at Hero Kits have done this before, they know the bikes, they’ve seen the crisis and they know which ones are the most common and what you’re going to need to put your bike back together.
The tools, however, aren’t much good if you don’t know how to use them, which is what makes the Instruction Booklet the crown jewel of the kit. The small, lightweight booklet provides step-by-step and easy to understand instructions on dealing with bike related blow-ups, covering scenarios such as a broken chain, wobbly wheel, brake problems, and more.
As of now, I’ve been lucky enough not to need to use my Hero Kit trail side, however I did flip through the booklet and gave my bike a few maintenance tweaks that have helped things (brakes and shifters) function a little smoother. This review is to be amended after my next bike breakdown, which, considering the vintage of my bike, may be sooner rather than later.

I received my mountain biking Hero Kit just over a week ago and finally had the opportunity to use it today! The guide that comes along had with the kit lays out how to repair some of the most common issues a mountain biker will encounter, and even comes with a rating system so you know how difficult of a repair you’re embarking on! In addition to the guide the mountain biking kit contains: 1) 12-function multitool, 2) duct tape, 3) multi-use wipes, 4) zip ties, 5) gear cable, 6) Tyvek patch frame bolt & cleat bolt, 7) Planet Bike tire levers and patch kit, 8) missing link-9, and 9) missing link-10. It fits easily into a small pack, along with the other essentials, and is extremely light so you don’t feel weighted down.
Today, I was able to use the 12-function multitool to tighten the reflector on my bike. It’s been wobbling around for a while, but I always forget to fix it by the time I’m home – good thing I had my Hero Kit with me to address it on the trail! Luckily I didn’t run into any major issues on my trip today, but it was nice knowing that I would be prepared if a situation arose.
For all the road bikers out there, Hero Kit has you covered too – there’s a road bike version available! There’s also a crash pack version, which would be good to have for any kind of biking.
I’m super happy to have a Hero Kit to provide peace of mind while out on the trail!
When: July 27th, 10 a.m. (We will have coffee!)
Where: PEDAL Bike Shop, 611 West Michigan Ave / Kalamazoo, MI 49007
Please RSVP to email@example.com, the event space is limited to 20 women.
In this two hour bike maintenance clinic, Southwest Michigan women will learn some basic biking survival skills. PEDAL bike shop will review how to change a tire, what women should have with them on a bike ride, how to remove the front and back wheel, what to do at home to keep breakdowns to a minimum, and when to seek bike shop help. In addition to this, SW Michigan women will be able to connect with one another and learn about a SheJumps ride to Lake Michigan later this summer. PEDAL is offering participants 15% off all merchandise (Except bikes) and all participants will receive a water bottle, tire, levers, and KNOW HOW!
I’m so excited about our new partnership with Hero Kits! Hero-kits will be partnering up with She Jumps in the Northeast for an upcoming bike clinic. We are firming up the dates so stay tuned!
I love my mountain biking hero kit! I’m a newbie to mountain biking and I want to participate in more group rides in my area, i’ve been a little intimidated by the group ride but now I feel like I could participate with confidence.
Having the hero-kit makes me feel ready for anything on the trail, and I could be someone’s she-ro!
I love the pocket sized instruction booklet. It’s step by step directions are really clear to follow and it’s written in a way that makes me feel empowered to try the repairs.
The other thing that really impressed me was the multi-tool. It’s very high quality and has everything you need including the chain wrench.
Not that I’m saying I want the opportunity to use the kit, but I feel like when the opportunity does arise, I will be prepared and pleased with my Hero-kit.
