“I felt the instant feedback during skills practice was extremely helpful. It was helpful to see your form on video and get instant technique help from Tina. Tina is a fantastic coach. She is highly skilled, her demeanor is approachable and she made the clinic fun! Looking forward to the next one!”
“(Tina is) patient, fun as hell, and super knowledgeable. LOVED the lesson and ready to do another asap! (She had) great communication leading up to the lesson, quick responses, onsite was smooth and easy to access, and she tailored the experience as needed. GREAT execution.”
“Tina was incredibly helpful with our intermediate group! I got to work with her at a Vida clinic once before so I was looking forward to our lesson and it did not disappoint. We got to focus on skills that will help us get up and over technical obstacles as well as worked on cornering! Great coaching style all around. Tina is a great coach, she adapts based on your skill level as the lesson progresses. I would absolutely take a lesson again!”
“I wish I had taken this class 5 years ago when I started! Very next ride out I felt like a new rider!”
"My son and I immediately felt comfortable with Coach Tina. She always encouraged him and gave specific instructions on how he can improve. I liked how she made him critic himself which helps to embed what she is teaching."
“The value I received in the drop clinic small group lesson is indescribable. I have new confidence on my bike and am excited to apply the skills to the trail.
The camaraderie of riding and learning with other women and the helpful feedback Tina provides when it's time to apply the newly learned skillset.
I love the affordability of the clinics.”
“Tina is knowledgeable, and so kind. Really takes her time and is very attentive to how you are riding, to give you personalized pointers to help you with anything you might need to work on. She knows and shares strategies to get you going and motivated! Thanks for empower me to keep doing what I love...riding bikes, Gracias Tina”
“Tina's hands-on instruction and video analysis really elevated this class. I found the small group size and video analysis to be extremely helpful. I recommend Tina for anyone looking to learn new skills. Her kind approach, humor, and hands on approach really elevated my riding to the next level.”
“I really appreciate your calmness when teaching. It helps me leave my ego out of the process and focus more on the skills. I also think your superpower is analyzing biomechanics for improvement. Probably because of your PT background. Thanks for a great class!"
"Tina was amazing--I'm impressed with how much I learned in such a short period of time. I also appreciated how she managed to give EVERYONE immediate feedback and each one was so valuable."
“I completely underestimated the importance of basic techniques and how it can help my riding. Tina was great at providing the basics and then building on it and, because of her help, I was able to tackle a technical climb feature that I would normally just walk. I feel like I left the lesson with some great tips, plus more confidence, that I know will make me a better rider.”
“Everything was helpful!! I loved Tina’s tailored approach and patience with me as I am a very new rider. I gained so much confidence and am excited to continue to learn and ride! I cannot thank Tina enough for the last three weeks (Intro to MTB clinic)!! I have learned so much, met great people and know I have a supportive group of women riders to count on!! I look forward to taking additional clinics to keep fine tuning my skills. I have really looked forward to these clinics the last few weeks.”
“The Intro to Drops clinic stands out as a unique offering. The ability to progress on drops that are right on the property at Rowdy Ryder Academy using Tina's feedback and video review was great. Getting on the spot corrections and also the ability to get in many reps really helped seal in the learning of the technique.”
“Perfect in every way!! My only feedback is please continue to offer beginner courses, I’ll keep taking them! (Tina) did such an amazing job explaining things and (she) is so patient & encouraging! Thank you!!!❤️”
“Loved learning from another female coach! It just seems more easily relatable. And also loved learning with the group of women who showed up. Women are the best cheerleaders! Loved the views up there! So pretty. It was a nice bonus.”
“Tina does such a great job communicating what she is teaching, with a logical progression to the next step. Classes are fun and well worth it. She’s got a great thing going on and a lot to offer!!”
“The warm, supportive atmosphere of the beginner clinic was exactly what I needed. Tina's feedback and the videos she took during the skills sessions helped me zero in what I've been doing wrong. I'm excited to apply what I've learned on the trail and to continue learning with more clinics!”
“This was a clinic that I have been wanting to take for a long time and loved everything about it. I was quickly able to implement techniques that I have been unsuccessful with on my own for a very long time.”
“Tina was amazing with her instruction! Patient and great direction. Really enjoyed the clinic and will join again! Sign up! You won’t be disappointed!”
“It's the 2nd cornering/switchback clinic I've attended and I learned way more in Tina's clinic! Drills/instructions/demonstrations provided in best order. Coaching style relaxing and nurtured confidence.”
“(The clinic was) Worth every penny!!! The small group setting is perfect,...you learn from the information she imparts to you as an individual, as well as from the help she gives to others in the small group. She is very patient and explains things very well. She would explain a skill drill then demonstrate the drill on her bike before you & others in group attempt to do the skill drill. Good learning environment. Questions are encouraged!! Tina is a very good teacher.
"This was a wonderful clinic. Just what I needed to build my courage and confidence back up after an injury. I definitely will be doing it again."
“I liked class structure and how you worked your way up to bigger things each time. I also felt like we had sufficient time to practice each skill too. Tina was very informative and helpful. The video feedback was great!”
“The clinic was definitely worth the value! Tina is very knowledgeable and patient, providing clear instructions throughout the lessons. I felt safe and supported as she emphasized proper riding techniques. There were ample opportunities to practice what I learned, both through practical exercises and trail rides. Even though it was a group lesson, Tina provided individual attention and valuable feedback, addressing my specific concerns.
One aspect that stood out was the clinic's progressive approach, which began with the fundamentals and then gradually introduced more advanced techniques. It was extremely beneficial that we had the opportunity to practice the basics before taking our newly learned skills out to the trails. What made the experience even better was Tina. She provided excellent feedback by observing us closely and even taking videos of us practicing skills during our rides. We would then review the videos together, allowing her to point out specific areas where I could make improvements. This personalized feedback loop was immensely helpful in refining my technique and building confidence!”
