sedona mtb festival - sedona, az

March 2, 2019

Sedona is famous for more than than transcendental experiences, it also happens to be an up-and-coming riding mecca. Located at 4,500 feet above sea level adjacent to the Mogollon Rim, Sedona's red rock makes for unparalleled scenery. The riding is accessible, technical, and fun; there is terrain to suit all abilities and opportunities to push your limits. There's something for everyone thanks to a recent expansion of the already extensive trail system covering the surrounding Coconino National Forest. 

VIDA is returning as the official Women's Hub of the fourth annual Sedona MTB Festival, March 1-3, 2019. VIDA will host a multitude of activities throughout the weekend to bring all women at the festival together, including tech talks, Yeti Beti demos, yoga and group rides on Sunday morning. The one-day clinic format will allow festival attendees the opportunity to gain skills and confidence with a coach on Saturday, and shred singletrack with their friends and family on Friday and Sunday.

NEW THIS YEAR: Clinic participants will receive a 50% off code for their Sedona MTB Festival Registration. While not necessary for the clinic, the festival pass will allow you to demo bikes and gear, get a sweet swag back, and fully enjoy the festival. This code is for your use only.

Boulder, CO, is home to one of the coolest city parks we have ever seen. Despite all the sunshine and amazing views of the flatirons, you won't notice any of it because you'll be having too much fun dialing in your technical skills in the glades, matching transitions on the jump lines, or tearing around the various pump tracks. Valmont is THE place for safe progression. There are features and stunts of every size to allow you to practice at your own pace, but also step it up to the next level when you're ready. Add on the tasty breweries, dynamic college town vibe, and the number of stellar rides within a short drive, and Valmont is a must-visit mountain biking destination.

VIDA is returning to Valmont in 2019 for a 1-Day Workshop. The format is perfect for women wanting to brush up on a specific technique or acquire a completely new skill. Complete beginners are also welcome, and will receive a great intro to helpful riding fundamentals from VIDA's highly qualified coaches.

Our May 11 date will be in conjunction with Sports Garage Demo Day, a day packed with different vendors offering you bike demos throughout the day. Sports Garage caps the number of participants in the demo day, meaning you won’t have to deal with long lines and extra wait times. All VIDA participants will be included in the Demo Day perks.

Saddle up for one of 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 14.

The second annual Golden Giddyup will be held the following day on September 15. 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!
