Roam Fest 2022 Dates...and we are headed to Knoxville!

Hey Folks, its Ash.


Well hot dang it's been a minute - you probably wouldn't believe me if I told you just how much has been going on here on the Roamfront. I'll save you the stoke-filled saga for another time and just hit you with the highlights: Our family has grown since we last talked. No. I didn't get Andi pregnant - but we did make our first full-time staff hires and it feels amazing to have these powerhouse women in our presence daily. Tina Ooley, Effenesia Baker, and Ariel Kazunas are all joining our staff in very different roles, but we're all working together to accomplish one thing: throw the best damn bike parties in the business. 


We're also heading to new locations with first-time events (what's up Roam Fest Knoxville!) and a fleet of ebikes will be in tow so we can slap a lap wherever local land managers will have us. 2022 is shaping up to be our biggest, and dare we say, best yet. We're forever grateful for your support of our tiny women-led company. We're just plain stoked to provide world-class mtb experiences for you all.  


Looking forward to hugging you in the near future

- Ash

Dates and Locations dropping soon!


After a crazy successful run last year, we are bringing back the Roam Rally Demo Tour along with our friends at Specialized Bicycles. We're hitting the road to bring small, expertly curated bike parties to lady shredders everywhere including several new locations! We'll be making 10 stops around the country for a fun-fueled day of bike demos, group rides, catered lunch, workshops, and all the awesomeness from Roam that y'all know and love. 


New this year - ebike demo! Several e-bike friendly locations will be on the tour so you can slap and braaaaap with a little less work and a helluvah lot of fun. Stay tuned for dates and locations.

Allyship is a lifelong process of building meaningful relationships based on trust & accountability with marginalized individuals and/or groups of people.


As a leader in contributing positive change within the bike industry, Roam is proactively working towards dismantling racism and fostering diversity, equity & inclusion in the mountain biking community. This is not an overnight fix.


There isn’t one simple solution to dealing with the issues of systemic racism and the inequalities in this industry – and we are committed to the journey of building a better world where riders of all races, ethnicities, genders, body sizes, sexual orientation, physical abilities, and socioeconomic status, can feel welcomed and supported while building stronger communities.

This might have been the most important hour of conversation that happened in the bike industry in 2021. Please share. With everyone you know.
