She MTB series returns to Granby Ranch
Summer’s in full swing here in Grand County and for many folks that means mountain biking season. While the local landscape offers many great opportunities to, “earn your turns”, to borrow a skiing phrase, nothing quite beats the easy excitement that comes from riding a lift-accessed mountain.
This weekend Granby Ranch will continue their female rider’s skills series called “She MTB”. The She MTB series at Granby Ranch is a summer long series which functions as both a racing and skills clinic. The program is for ladies and is taught by ladies, hence the program name. The July session of the She MTB series at Granby Ranch will be held this weekend, July 16 and 17.
The program kicks off at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 16 with the She MTB Downhill class. Coaching sessions will be held before moving on to open ride time. Participants will work on mastering their down-hilling skills in a, “pressure-free, three-hour coaching session for beginner to intermediate female downhill mountain bikers,” according program details from Granby Ranch.
Coaches will work with riders on form and timing. Tips and tricks will be provided by some of Granby Ranches own bike experts. After the coaching session She MTB participants will test out their new skills with a two-hour open ride period. The day’s activities will wrap up with complimentary appetizers and wine tasting.
The She MTB XC class will be held beginning at 11 a.m. Sunday July 17. The format of the XC class will closely follow the format of the Downhill class with the program kicking off with coaching sessions, followed by open ride time and closing out the day with appetizers and wine tasting.
Granby Ranch also plans to hold an August session for the She MTB series, held August 13 and 14. If you are interested in participating in the Granby Ranch She MTB series you can register by calling 888-850-4615. Advance registration is required.
