"Liv is fully committed to providing the best bikes and gear for the female cyclist, along with the education and community to support her during every step of her cycling journey. This is why our partnership with Ladies AllRide continues to grow and is vital to our brand," said Jen Audia, Liv US Marketing Manager. "Getting into mountain biking can be very intimidating, but the way Lindsey and her coaches break down skill progression and help participants challenge their fears and smile while doing it, creates not only lifelong riders but future teachers and new riding buddies. We are witnessing a tremendous growth in the women's mountain biking segment thanks to programs like Ladies AllRide because they are investing in people, and that is something to celebrate and a program we want to support for years to come."Lindsey uses her magic wand-stick to help a student get her wheels off the ground.
Lindsey explains, "Our Ladies AllRide coaching philosophy is built around the technical components of riding as well as the symmetry between mountain biking and life. We understand how women can get stuck with negative, debilitating thoughts that inhibit their growth on a bike and in life. It starts by giving them the tools to have a deeper understanding of the sport. When ladies begin to understand what their bikes need from them to get through changing terrain they can accomplish more than they thought possible. The goal is to help women understand the mechanics of the sport, while also helping them get out of their heads and into the ride."Understanding proper balance points on the bike is key for confident maneuvering. Lindsey analyzes movements using a coaching app.NEW LOCATIONS
The ladies will return to many 2016 locations where they are quickly feeling at home within the communities. They have added two new exciting locations for 2017.Bentonville, Arkansas
– We’ve been hearing about this budding mountain bike destination for a few years now. IMBA has been working hard to create world-class trails close to town, and after a quick scouting mission, we decided it's the perfect fit for a sweet camp. Big Sky, Montana
- It goes without saying that Montana is stunningly beautiful, but we chose to host a camp at Big Sky because their bike park and progressive trail scene is growing fast and they want to see more women riding there. We also want more big mountain destinations on our roster, so we are super excited to head to Montana!Angi demonstrates how to manual through rollers on the Reeb Ranch slalom track.Reeb Ranch in North Carolina is a pretty incredible location for the Grand Finale camp.
Mountain biking takes focus, determination and understanding what the bike needs from you to get through.
|The camps are well-organized and extremely inviting. The pre-clinic evening happy-hour is a big hit where ladies enjoy snacks and beverages while they make nameplates and mingle with coaches and new friends. The two-day weekend sessions begin with morning skills and drills practice followed by lunch, a raffle and afternoon trail riding fun. It doesn't matter if you're a seasoned mountain biker or brand new to the sport, there is something for everyone at a Ladies AllRide camp and it's an experience of a lifetime finding out what you're capable of on a bike!. - Agnes Rodriguez, Digital Dork and Yogi for Ladies AllRide. |
