PRESS RELEASE: Katrina Strand and Claire Buchar

Katrina Strand and Claire Buchar have put together a new style of course for all ladies out there wanting to Learn to Epic.


Ladies only epic to the backcountry of Whistler, BC.

Have you always wanted to go on an epic bike adventure but unsure if you can handle it? Do you crave adventure but want some tips and tricks to finish successfully?

‘Learn to Epic’, taught by professional riders Katrina Strand and Claire Buchar, is designed to teach you how to safely execute a BIG day on the bike. Late August we head out as a group to conquer Whistler’s newest epic adventure ‘Lord of the Squirrels’. But, beforehand you will be given a 4-week itinerary of rides (or distance) that will prepare you for the day, as well as skills necessary to make it through the descent. On top of that, you will be provided with a ‘what to pack’ list and other necessities of backcountry riding.

This course IS NOT A RACE! It is about learning how to enjoy the backcountry in a safe and confident manner.

Where: Whistler, BC. Ride: LORD OF THE SQUIRRELS

Level: Intermediate to Advanced

When: August 29th (with 4 week lead up literature)

Who: Any lady 16 + years (unless otherwise discussed with instructors)

Cost: $145

How To Register: Contact info@strandtraining.com. All registered riders MUST BE 2018 WORCA members.

Come and join us on this beautiful and rewarding ride!
