BIKE & ART RETREAT

07. - 10.6.2018
with Steffi Marth & Micayla Gatto

Under the guidance of Steffi Marth, you will experience exciting and unforgettable days at the YGR Buchegg in the Bike-Circus Saalbach Hinterglemm. A special feature waits beside Northshore elements and Drops: together with the Canadian exceptional artist Micayla Gatto tire studs are exchanged for brushes and Co. Let yourself be surprised and, above all, be inspired. 


THE GUIDES:

Micayla Gatto Professional mountain-biker and artist, Micayla aims to inspire and encourage others to achieve their dreams and be creative through her riding and artwork from the wild places on earth. She believes the greatest experiences in life are the ones full of adventure, laughter, challenges, and nature. Micayla's artwork is a direct reflection of her love of these things, with bold black lines and vibrant colours. Micayla now lives in Northern Sweden, where she spends most of her time skiing, snowboarding and riding bikes in sub-zero temperatures. When she's not outside embracing the elements, you'll find her playing her guitar, editing photos, and drawing. 

The mission of Steffi Marth is to squeeze the best out of every day. The professional moun- tainbiker from east Germany loves challenges of all kinds like racing bikes, trying new sports and taking adventurous trips. Her life on two wheels began at the age of 12 on a BMX bike and after becoming a pro 4X racer, she was pushed higher into the mountains with the desire to explore. For many years now she shares her passion with fresh faces at her skills camps and loves to spread her great enthusiasm for bikes. When not behind bars, you can find her with her handcrafting-box, doing crosswords, yoga or behind the camera.
