Welcome to Rowdy Ryder Academy

Mountain Bike Coaching / Strength and Conditioning / Physical Therapy

Rowdy Ryder Academy was founded in 2023 by Tina Meinhardt, a physical therapist and mountain bike coach from Ohio, who also started the Girls, Gears and Beers women's mountain bike club after moving to Denver in 2018, with hopes of meeting other women who share her same passion for mountain biking. 


Tina has been riding for over 23 years and holds the BICP Level 2 and PMBIA Level 1 Mountain Bike Coach Certifications. She enjoys teaching and motivating riders to improve their skills and confidence, making riding more enjoyable and safe. As a physical therapist and CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, she is able to use her knowledge in biomechanics and kinesiology to help assess and correct positioning, as well educate and train riders to improve their strength, speed, power and mobility on the bike.


Tina and her husband, Bruce, recently bought a 2 acre property in West Arvada at the end of 2022, where they are building their dream "mountain bike ranch."  Rowdy Ryder Ranch has a 4,000 sq ft turf field for skills practice, a hillside where trails are being built to use for coaching purposes- switchbacks, corners, technical climbing obstacles, a jump line, and a technical descent line.  The ranch also includes a progressive drop zone, a tabletop jump, technical climbing features, berm corner, with more features being built in 2024. The ranch also has a garage gym where Coach Tina offers strength and conditioning programs and physical therapy services. An indoor facility is planned to be built in 2025, housing a new gym and turf area. 

She is available by appointment for private lessons, for any skills or areas of mountain biking you may need to improve. She also holds multiple small group clinics throughout the week and weekends. Please see the Booking Calendar for dates and times. ​
