The first ever WTF Bikexplorers Summit will be an outdoor weekend of rides, clinics, gear testing, campfires and storytelling in Whitefish, Montana to support, celebrate, and connect Women, Trans, Femme cyclists who use their bicycles to explore.
Prior to the Summit in August, WTF Bikexplorers will host a series of regional rides around the country that will help start the conversation.
100% Women, transgender, femme, and non-binary gravel grinders, mountain bikers, bikepackers, day-ride explorers, long-distance road riders, bicycle tourers, backpackers converting to bikepacking, individuals looking to incorporate camping with biking.
Whitefish, Montana is located in the heart of the spectacular northern Rocky Mountains and is a hub for bicycle travelers along three major Adventure Cycling Association bike routes, The Great Divide Mountain Bike Route, The Northern Tier, and The Great Parks North.
Owned and operated by adventure cyclist/bikepacker (7-time GDMBR finisher) Cricket Butler, the Whitefish Bike Retreat features on-site camping, mountain bike trails, and easy access to public lands, offering a fun and ideal venue for rides, talks, and campfires.
Campfires. They are our safe place, our stove, our dinner table, our breakfast nook. Sharing delicious meals and drinks with one another around a campfire is an integral experience of the WTF Bikexplorers Summit.
We have partnered with inspiring bicycle van nomad, Tanesha Hartnagle, to provide delicious meals made with local farm fresh ingredients from her out-of-truck kitchen.
