The MTB Equity Coach Coalition is inviting all mountain bike coaches to join us to make mountain biking a more inclusive sport. There aren’t a lot of Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) included in or represented in mountain biking. By uniting the network of mountain bike coaches from around the world, we can make some real social change in each of our communities.
Our goal this year is to assemble a group of coaches to fundraise and invite 1,000 people who are BIPOC to try out mountain biking in 2021, through participation in skills camps, clinics, and other programs. Each coach that chooses to join will receive a toolbox for action, including fundraising support from the Be Good Foundation, written templates, programming ideas for professional coaches and business owners, advice on other DEI efforts, plus an amazing support network of like-minded MTB coaches working towards real change. We need each other and our communities need us!
On Monday, October 26 we will be hosting a webinar via Zoom for anyone interested to learn more. Sign up here!
The mountain bike has PROVEN it can bring people together from all different backgrounds, ages, interests, skills, abilities, and wheel sizes. Let's do more to keep inviting everyone.
If you want to make change in your community, come to the webinar.
