Comments from DivaCampTM Participants:


DivaCamp was exactly what I needed to gain experience and confidence on my bike!

I would definitely do it again, and would love to help coordinate in any way. It was a gorgeous location, inspiring coaches, and gave me a chance to really increase my confidence and utilize my skills to help others.

The coaching was great - specific, practical and delivered in a supportive way

I have absolutely nothing to complain about (not a single criticism!). It was an incredibly positive experience.

The camp was laid back but the cycling challenged me. It was awesome fun when we got that paceline working fast! I wish I could get my friends at home to work together like that.

I learned a lot, and I made lifetime friends. We have already had some meetings and have made plans to do so again. I cannot thank you enough for this experience. I hope to make it a annual event. The staff was especially great. Loved everyone... Tom, Melinda, Alison, Slip, and of course Chad.

 All the skills were highly valuable - I genuinely felt like I improved a lot in the course of 3 days: I feel more confident, comfortable on the bike, and have a greater sense of awareness (self- and others) now.

This was my third camp and I don't know how but you guys keep outdoing yourselves. Grand Slam Home run!

We loved this location!!!!
