“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.
Lindsey explains, “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.”
Liv Cycling, the company dedicated to getting more women on bikes, has supported Ladies AllRide since the beginning and will continue as title sponsor in 2020. They are excited to announce that the partnership with Liv has evolved, and they are now working with the Liv global marketing team, expanding their reach and opportunities globally.
“Liv supports Ladies AllRide because they are perfectly aligned with our goal of getting more women and girls on bikes,” said Brook Hopper, global marketing manager at Liv Cycling. “Lindsey, Meredith and their team of coaches have had tremendous success not only growing participation in camps, but in teaching skills that help build confidence and foster a passion for mountain biking”
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.
“SRAM is proud to support the Ladies AllRide Program. You would be hard-pressed to find a program that has put more miles on the blacktop 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
“We are beyond excited to partner with so many incredible companies in the bike industry. More and more brands are seeing the value in education-based mountain biking events that inspire women to find their confidence on bikes. We are really grateful to see the industry’s commitment to getting more women excited about mountain biking.” —Meredith Brandt, CEO for Ladies AllRide
