Pumps on Pedals (5-7pm on Fridays)
Starting on June 30, this weekly summer event welcomes female mountain bike riders to an open clinic taught by women for women. Pumps on Pedals is guided by the Specialized Academy female coaches and offers discounted lift tickets and bike rentals. Most importantly, the group fosters a no-posturing zone. It is an open course intended for all ability levels, including moms improving their skills to be able to ride with their kids or women needing an exhilarating escape from city life. There is also no limit to the riding style, Pumps on Pedals welcomes cross country, endurance and downhill riders. The evening culminates in the Village for well-earned libations and plenty of new-found friends.
Her Mountain (Jul 22-23 & Aug 19-20)
The Specialized Bike Academy presents two full days of female-only riding, friendship and mountain adventure. The course is comprised of small group lessons, ensuring individual attention in an environment that encourages team support. Outside of biking, the weekend includes breakfast and lunch on both days to fuel the body. To refuel the soul, restorative yoga is offered at the course culmination in the Village at Northstar to open up sore muscles and joints. Topping off the weekend is a wine mixer intended to fuel newly found friendships among the mountain bike community.
Each two day session is $429 per person and includes your lift ticket, breakfast, lunch, a happy hour & recovery yoga.
