Ladies AllRide mountain bike skills camps are all about bringing people who identify as female together to learn skills on their bikes and share the joys of mountain biking in a fun, welcoming and encouraging environment.

From fresh-out-of-the-box newbie to seasoned rider, group ride lover or solo shredder, if you’re ready to dial in your mountain bike skills, the Ladies AllRide crew welcomes you. The word “AllRide” is really a message meaning “We should All RIDE bikes together to experience the fun and life lessons bikes can bring into our lives”, but more importantly Ladies AllRide welcomes ALL body types, ALL fitness levels, ALL skin colors, ALL walks of life!

Ladies AllRide strives to help women see the symmetry between bikes and life because they believe in the power of mountain biking as a catalyst for growth, change and connection with others and oneself. They have seen firsthand how mountain biking can change lives by helping people face fears, believe in themselves and learn what they’re capable of. They strive to share their passion with as many women as possible to help grow the community of female mountain bikers across the globe.

Join the Ladies AllRide crew this summer to play on bikes in awesome locations around the country! They are still taking COVID-19 very seriously and will be following strict guidelines to help create a safe environment for staff, students and the communities they will be riding in. They take a lot of care to place each rider in small groups based on answers to an extensive questionnaire to create a welcoming and FUN camp experience for all, and with COVID-19 in mind, groups will be asked to stay in their assigned groups during the duration of the camps that will be held outside.

"After a decade of traveling the country attending races, sponsoring a kids' downhill race team and doing product demos through The AllRide Tour, I realized there weren't many non-competitive events for women that focused on learning the sport. I also felt like the emotional component to mountain biking needed to be openly addressed so women would feel less intimidated about joining in on the fun. I started Ladies AllRide in 2013 as a movement with the mission to grow the community of female mountain bikers around the globe! Our mountain bike skills camps are fun, confidence-inspiring ways for women to come together to learn and 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 by relating lessons on the bike to life.

Lindsey explains, "We understand how the thoughts in our mind can run wild with fear or negativity that inhibits 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. By practicing fundamental skills they begin to understand what their bikes need from them to get over obstacles. The real magic to witness is when 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 bikes and life."

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.

Lindsey, Meredith and the whole team are passionate professionals, and their program is helping change the face of the bicycle industry - one skills camp at a time." — Sara Jarrell SRAM Women’s Program Manager

 They canceled a bit late last year on my wife causing us to be stuck with an Air BnB that she and her friends reserved. Think they would send out a coupon to those they left hanging till the last moment.

 Hi! Bummer about the AirBnB, it sounds like they weren't accommodating due to COVID like most rentals were. That sucks, we are so sorry. We did offer every participant a bunch of options including first dibs at getting into a camp this year with a credit, to be fully refunded without us taking any fees or to take a private lesson instead. Let me know what we can do if y'all were stuck with AirBnB fees and we will help out however we can. Please shoot us an email at info@ladiesallride.com -- COVID really made last year difficult on us and so many other small businesses, so we are truly sorry to hear that us needing to cancel to try and keep people safe caused you to lose any money. That really bums us out! Thanks!
