Women’s Weekend at Angel Fire Bike Park
July 9 and 10, 2022
HG is stoked to present…
The second annual Women’s Weekend at Angel Fire Bike Park! HG and it’s talented coaches will host two days of lift-access riding at one of the best bike parks in the country in Angel Fire, New Mexico. Riders will enjoy guided runs down some the most fun trails anywhere, with professional instruction and coaching along the way.
HG will have at least two coaches for a group of no more than 10 riders, with multiple lift-accessed runs throughout the day to maximize trail time. Topics covered will include:
*Keeping speed and traction through corners and berms
*Learning to “get air” with drops and jumps, and the fundamental mechanics necessary to land safely
*Bike park culture and etiquette
*Line selection and technical, steep descending
*Finding the flow required to ride fast downhill
Prerequisites: All riders should be “strong-beginner/intermediate” with some exposure to technical, downhill trails. A full-suspension bike with a dropper seat post is required. Full-face helmets and protective gear are also recommended. WANT TO RENT A BIKE? Angel Fire Resort has a full bike shop, with downhill and trail bikes available for rent at 20% off for clinic attendees.
So grab your lady crew and sign up today!

ABOUT THE COACHES:
With over 25 years in the sport, Tara has dedicated her life to MTB, and feels most at home on gravity-fed trails. As a PMBIA Certified Coach, Tara has an exceptional knack for pushing riders to help them break free of their self-imposed limitations. Using a logical approach versus a fear based approach, Tara helps her students develop the skills required to make solid decisions on the trail. As one of the very first of only a couple female riders on her home mountain, Mt Lemmon, she often chased some of Tucson’s fastest riders down technical, fast trails. Tara started a Tucson based shuttle, rental, and guiding company called Home Grown MTB in 2016. She has become a resource for locals and tourists alike, looking to experience the big mountain riding and exhilarating backcountry trails of the Sonoran Desert. She is also a founding member and past President of TORCA (Tucson Off-Road Cyclists & Activists), with thousands of hours of volunteer work slinging dirt and rock to make the trails better for everyone. Tara has coached MTB professionally for the past 5+ years, traveling the country working for some of the biggest names in the industry.
**PLEASE NOTE: HG believes a well-rounded athlete benefits from the perspective of both male and female coaching. While this clinic is focused on the ladies, HG will utilize it’s professional male coaches to provide coaching assistance and mechanical support.
