Our Programs

At Shifting Gears, we focus on breaking down barriers that stand in the way between a person and their outdoor aspirations. At Shifting Gears, participants walk away with the skills and tools needed to attain their recreational desires and goals.

Whether it be learning to change a flat tire, going above and beyond physically by cycling 30 or 100 miles, locating accessible trails or finding a hiking partner, back or bike packing for the first time, inspiring goals, or just remembering how to play... our aim is to create a welcoming environment for all women to join in, learn, and enjoy.

We offer programming throughout the summer.

Come back soon as we continue to announce dates for 2023!
