KEEN Rippin Chix with Osprey Packs at the Fruita Fat Tire Festival

Rippin Chix in Fruita for the camp

Osprey Packs and KEEN Footwear teamed up for a Rippin Chix skills camp at the Fruita Fat Tire Festival.

We set up in downtown Fruita, just behind the Santa Cruz Bicycle and Osprey tents with my fun skills stations. Gals were able to grab a new Talon or Verve demo hydration pack, complete with my favorite hose magnet, and were then broken into groups by ability. Champion bikers Janae Pritchett, Tina Kempin, Katie Koppenhafer, Dawn Passant and Sydney Fuller helped lead groups through the course.

Chix tackled the switchback station, log station, curb station, bridge station, jumping station and bunny hop station. Quizzical and skeptical looks turned quickly into smiles and whoops of joy and we ended with even the beginners charging the jump station, much to their surprise!

The camp ended with a Green Trivia Contest, featuring questions and prizes from our wonderful sponsors including fantabulous Osprey Hydraulics Packs, KEEN Footwear, Patagonia, Nemo Equipment, Luna Bar and more! Special kudos to our sponsors sustainability efforts, helping to save our snow and our planet for future generations, and also for helping so many women tackle their fears!
