Riding the bike park at Northstar can be intimidating at times if you’re not already a regular gravity rider. Even if you are, as a woman we’re often riding with male companions. Riding in the company of other female riders can sometimes make a big difference in progressing your skill set to the next level.
We’re big fans of any efforts to help build the riding community, so when we got word that Northstar at Tahoe was promoting a ladies night, we were happy to hear about it. (the downside is they’re all on Fridays, making it a challenge for us with typical 9-5s)
