"If you're out in the Denver area and need to get some MTB in, this is who to go to. Lauren was a great guide, very knowledgeable, personable, and accommodating. She handled everything from logistics, transport, bike, food, etc. Had a great day riding the trails where she let me dictate pace and we wrapped up with some good food and beer. Trails were great, challenging climbs with a mix of techy sections. Very nice to be able to go on a business trip and not lug my bike gear. A+++!"

"Great first time experience mountain biking in Colorado! My girl friend and I had a great time together. Conditions were great, and the pace was perfect for our experience level. Lauren is awesome, and she really bent over backwards to accommodate the ride (with gear, equipment, etc.). She really made the trip fun, and would definitely connect with her again if and when we are back in Colorado for another ride!"

"Came to Boulder from Australia for 3 days of quality mountain biking and Lauren delivered. I was specific on what I was after in my riding both in distance, technical difficulty and variety. Lauren is an accomplished rider but also friendly and accommodating. All the extras including trail food and lunch were just right and she makes a mean home made cookie. Would highly recommend."
~Steve: all of our rides over 3 days of riding!
"First time mountain biking experience and it was amazing. I think I'm hooked. Chose a ride in south Boulder which had absolutely stunning views of the mountains over rolling hills with wild flowers and prairie dogs. Super easy to setup and communicate with Lauren as well- she offers pickup and drop off, rents a good bike, provides snacks and lunch and beer, and is a really encouraging, relatable, engaging coach. Would do it again. So worth the price. Do it!!!"

"We did the couples ride with Lauren and she was amazing! Very accommodating to both of our skill levels. Great conversation and wonderful lunch at the end."

"I couldn't have asked for a better ride. I am an experienced road cyclist but had not been off road in a long time and Lauren took us on an incredible ride that was both beautiful, fun, and challenging but not scary. We had such a good time and her tips and tricks definitely helped with the tough parts! She is the perfect guide and I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to mountain bike - beginner or experienced."

"I did a ladies ride with Lauren and it was amazing. The group had a wide variety of skills, from beginner to expert and we all had fun. I was the beginner and Lauren helped me every step of the way, from checking my tire pressure, to loosening my clips, to coaching me climbing and descending. My confidence increased so much. We had brunch with Mimosa's and Bloody Mary's afterwards and we laughed so hard. I can't wait to do more rides with her . . . ladies rides, couples rides and overnight rides are on my list."

"As a 60 year old fellow who loves vacationing in Boulder every August, my mountain biking skills seem to have plateaued somewhere just above novice. I am used to mountain bike riding by myself and frankly was not aware that a ride with a guide was an option. I’ll also confess that I was a little apprehensive as read Lauren’s credentials as bike racer. Would she have the patience to hang out at my much slower pace? Bottom line - I had one of the best rides of my life. Lauren was awesome starting with picking me and my bike up at our hotel, showing me a trail that I didn’t know existed, and never making me feel uncomfortable or embarrassed by my need to stop and rest or walk a particular section. And then the gourmet sandwich and beer at the end was fabulous. Next August, I’ll definitely be calling on her again for a another great ride!"
