I started Ladies AllRide in 2013 as a movement to grow the community of female mountain bikers around the globe. After a decade of traveling the country attending races, sponsoring a kids’ race team and doing product demos through The AllRide Tour, I realized there weren’t many events for women that focused on learning the sport. I also felt like the emotional component to this sport needed to be openly addressed so women would feel less intimidated by mountain biking. Our mountain bike skills camps are welcoming, educational, non-competitive and fun events meant to bring women together to celebrate a sport that can change their lives!—Lindsey Richter, Founder and Director of Inspiration for Ladies AllRide

The Ladies AllRide team of skilled and passionate coaches help women realize what they’re capable of on and off their bikes. They are committed to the mission to get more women excited about mountain biking through these informative and inspirational skills camps. While they teach women valuable bike handling skills, they also inspire them to live their best lives using mountain biking as a catalyst for growth and change.

We understand how easy it is to let our minds run wild with negative, fear-based thoughts that inhibit growth on a bike and in life. Our Ladies AllRide coaching philosophy focuses on the technical aspects of riding as well as the relationship between mountain biking and life. We provide women with the tools to have a deeper understanding of the sport, then the magic happens when they begin to understand what their bikes need from them to get over obstacles and they start accomplishing more than they thought possible. The goal is to help women understand the mechanics of the sport, while also helping them think thoughts that keep the wheels rolling forward, which applies to the bike and life.—Lindsey Richter, Founder and Director of Inspiration for Ladies AllRide

Presenting sponsor SRAM, and a long list of awesome companies including SMITH, Sombrio, Picky Bars, Crankbrothers, Hydro Flask, Save our Soles, G-Form and have remained on board to support the popular series of camps. Team Ladies AllRide loves sharing some of the best products in the business through demos, samples, raffle giveaways and discount codes.

An important component to the camps are the education stations where women learn about setting up and adjusting suspension, fixing flat tires, bike maintenance, gear, facing fear and so much more.

You would be hard pressed to find a program that has put more miles on the black top traversing the country, and now the ocean, to get more women on bikes. Lindsey, Meredith and the whole team are passionate professionals and their program is helping change the face of the bicycle industry – one clinic at a time.—Sara Jarrell SRAM Women’s Program Manager
