Thursday, August 29, 2019, 12:30 AM

Something special happens when a group of women gets together in a spirit of shared shred, and there's no doubt that a female coach can reach female riders in ways a dude can't.  Mountain biking is such a rad sport—and it’s about to get even radder. Stoked crew! Do you know how it feels to rail a turn on skis or snowboard? Learn how to do that on your bike. Where are these classes held? These sessions are held at the extraordinary Valmont Bike Park in Boulder, CO. Valmont is a fantastic place to learn and ride.
