Road Tripping

This past weekend Jamie and I packed up our gear bags and mountain bikes for a girls only mountain biking getaway in southern Oregon. This was my first mountain biking road trip without my boyfriend. I’ve gone on plenty of girls only trips but never one that was mountain biking specific.

I’ve known Jamie for a long time making her the perfect travel companion and riding partner for this excursion.  I consider myself to be a very experience mountain biker, however, I am still a girly girl that requires a certain amount of sleep, showers and pampering after spending all day in the woods.

Thankfully she was on the same page and was really cool about my obsession with documenting our trip.

We had a blast wearing ourselves out, eating delicious food, drinking cider and hanging out with other mountain bikers. I am already looking forward to the next trip!

I took this weekend as an opportunity to work on my action sports photography. While I am not 100% happy with the photos I shot, I also don’t think they are half bad.

Most of my Instagram photos I shot myself using a remote.
