Saddle up for the last of our clinics this summer, right at home in the heart of Golden, Colorado! In conjunction with the Golden Giddyup, VIDA is offering a 1-Day Workshop on Saturday, September 9.
The second annual Golden Giddyup will be held the following day on September 10. This all-day mountain bike event is both a great day in the saddle and a way to commemorate the 1000+ hours of trail work Giddyup organizers, partners, and riders have put into Jeffco Open Space trails and parks throughout the past year. The Giddyup is an "endurondo"— part enduro, part Grand Fondo, with timed descents and climbs, meaning all styles and strengths will be celebrated on stage. Awards for the day include the Best Climber, and Best Descender, and of course, the Queen of the Mountain! Three course selections— the Classic, Chimpex, and North Table Mountain, are available so you can decided how long you want to race for!
We will meet at the Event HQ for the Golden Giddyup at Lions Park to begin the workshop! We'll quickly move over to Golden Bike Park to dial in fundamental skills, break for lunch, and then head to the trails to check out a portion of the course. Whether you plan on participating in the Golden Giddyup, or just want to learn and build confidence on your mountain bike, the condensed format is perfect for women wanting to brush up on skills or prepare for the race. Complete beginners are also welcome, and will receive a great intro to helpful riding fundamentals from VIDA's highly qualified coaches. Yeti Cycles will be on-site with Yeti Beti demos so you can test ride our favorite bikes and see for yourself why Bicycling Magazine called the Yeti Beti SB5c a "Dream Bike" in their Editor's Choice 2016.
