PORTLAND, Ore. (BRAIN) — WTF Bikexplorers, described as “a community for women, trans, femme and nonbinary bicycle adventurers,” is planning its first WTF Bikexplorers Summit and a ride series for 2018.

The Summit and Ride Series aims to support, celebrate and connect women, transgender, femme and nonbinary people who also identify as gravel grinders, mountain bikers, bikepackers, day-rider explorers, long distance road riders, bicycle tourists, backpackers converting to bikepacking and individuals looking to incorporate camping with biking,” the group said.

The Summit will be Aug. 16-19 at Whitefish Bike Retreat in Whitefish, Montana. The Whitefish Bike Retreat offers on-site camping, mountain bike trails, easy access to public lands and space for connecting with other W/T/F riders over campfires. Attendees will enjoy meals prepared by backcountry camp chef Tanesha Hartnagle. A full schedule of educational clinics, group rides, and interactive activities is being developed and will be announced soon, along with ticket sales information.

Before the Summit, the WTF Bikexplores Ride Series will feature free, self-supported bike camping trips around the country. Specific locations, dates and additional details for each ride will be announced soon, with events planned for Arizona, Oregon, California, Vermont, and Montana.
