- Austin Team LUNA Chix Takes on Waco
Don’t mess with Texas, especially Clif Bar Texas Field Marketing Rep Whitney Nelson. She’s been ripping it up on the mountain bike trails with members of Austin’s Team LUNA Chix. Check out her recent account of a day out on the trails below…
The annual Ride Cameron Park! women’s mountain biking clinic happens every year around mid-November in Waco, Texas and this event has become one of my absolute favorites! It’s a weekend full of female mountain bikers coming together to have a good time, learn new skills and make new friends.
I rode up with Stephanie Childs, one of Austin’s Team LUNA Chix and met a few more TLC girls there for a great day of riding and guiding. The switch back area of Rinky Dink was our domain for the day and we helped guide newbie, experienced and expert riders through course, even ending up with some time trials pitting an 11-year old phenom against a seasoned racer. They came in neck and neck (within 2 seconds of each other!), and Anna, the 11 year old, earned some serious bragging rights for the day.
The highlight of this weekend is always our very own Pro LUNA ChixShonny Vanlandingham, who comes into town for the event every year to share her expertise, ride with the women and this year she even lead a stretching session.
Go Shonny! It was a great time had by all and as we closed the weekend out and talked about all the fun stuff that had taken place, we were already looking forward to next year’s big weekend.
