High fives for successes and failures because both are valuable life lessons

PRESS RELEASE: Ladies AllRide

We at Ladies AllRide Mountain Bike Skills Camps are excited to announce our expanded Girls AllRide program for 2020! Girls ages 9-16 will be able to attend programs that suit their skillsets, goals and age group in and around Bend, OR. The program will integrate the same Ladies AllRide coaching philosophy where they relate mountain biking to life, while making it fun and educational.

Witnessing girls thrive because of confidence gained through mountain biking is priceless

Because girls should all ride bikes: Girls AllRide has a mission to use mountain biking as a tool for youth to build community, discover potentials and strengthen themselves - inside and out. The main goal is to help girls develop their mountain biking skills and have fun, while also helping them learn how to face fears, believe in themselves and think positive, logical thoughts instead of reacting with fear.

"We are passionate about helping the younger generation feel strong and discover what they are capable of. We want girls to learn firsthand that if they believe in themselves, anything is possible." said Ali Halpin, Program Director for Girls AllRide

Head coach Cierra Smith has five Jr. downhill national championship titles and now helps young girls experience the power of bicycles

Girls just want to have fun

"We are excited to help the younger generation create community through sport. Additionally, sports like mountain biking can teach them so much about themselves. We will help them realize attitude is a choice, we will teach them to be patient and kind to themselves through the process of learning and we will emphasize the importance of supporting other girls through their journey," says Lindsey Richter - Founder and Director of Inspiration for Ladies AllRide

Whether they are brand new to mountain biking or ready to pop wheelies and catch some air, Girls AllRide is ready to help
Girls AllRide will give preadolescent girls a place to feel confident, secure, and emotionally safe. By encouraging young girls to face challenges with courage and celebrate failures as lessons, this can dictate the quality of our future female leaders.

Lindsey says: "At Ladies AllRide we see that passion motivates women to push limits and defy the status quo. So if we can help girls understand passion at a young age, seeds of bravery, perseverance, and community-building can be planted and cultivated during pre-adolescence - a critical time of development and identity for girls.”

Team-building through bikes is powerful

 Ladies allride is awesome. Women get loads of confidence from riding with other women of equal skill. Something about Lindsey too, she's got a fantastic way of words.

 I’ve seen the AllRide groups around Bend before. A bunch of them cheered me on through some rock sections on Tiddlywinks, Funner, and Storm King towards the green gate one year. They always seem to be having a blast.
