MOJO Active Adventures was epic!!! The perfect “girls” getaway. Just the right combo of activities and relaxation. My massage after Pikes Peak biking was just what I needed. MOJO had all transportation, hotel rooms and meals arranged so there was no work on our part. Participants in our group ranged from thrill-seeking daredevils to more cautious adventurers. Molly supported and encouraged everyone. Can’t wait for the next trip!
