Video: Why Ride with Christina Chappetta, Georgia Astle, Laura Battista, Hailey Elise & Jaime Hill

by Pinkbike Originals  


We can all agree that riding our bikes is amazing, but why? Is it the perfectly groomed flow trails that have us hooked or maybe it's the feeling of riding through endless loam?

 Thankful to have such a wicked crew and support system around me. Happiest of International Womens' Day to all and hope you get to experience a bit of good energy from these ladies on your ride 3

 Ye are missing a “we” from the headline.

It’s pretty obvious why you’d ride with that list of riders.

 I honestly don't even know who they are... surely my lack of culture is due to the fact that I don't have Instagram. Greetings.

 As I say, I don't know them. I guess it's because I don't have Instagram, I've never heard of those names.

 I don't know who they are, I don't know those people, it's the first time I hear those names, I guess that's the bad thing about not having social networks. Greetings.

 I'm really sorry, but I don't know who they are, I only know DH, Holl, Nicole, Cabirou, Hoffman and all those. Can someone tell me who they are?

 I don't know, if I knew them maybe I should, honestly I don't know them.

 I literally have a super fun mtb trail 3 miles from my house, and can just hop on my bike (gt sensor) and hit the trails for a complete mind-zen vacation from reality. There's nothing quite like it, other than snowboarding (which costs a LOT more money to actually do). I've been infatuated with 2-wheel moving since I was a kid, and I can't imagine biking not being a huge part of my life.

 This! I can do a 25min loop from my house that has a 3min technical descent in it. I can MTB every day, and every day is a good day to MTB. A mini-vacation every single day.

 @rickybobby18: Same here, out my back door, five miles of single track and many miles of double track. Why drive?

 why down vote this?

 Fat thumbs accidental downvote! MTb is second only to snowboarding for me as far as that blissful flow state feeling. May I recommend backcountry; more like MTB when you’re earning your turns and much cheaper after you pony up for the equipment.

 Awesome footage! Really captures the fun of riding with friends in a train.

 Thanks Noah! All the best vibes. Can't wait for more spring time lady trains

 That 5th rider is a real dog!

 Lol. Waiting on someone to barge in here an be super angry with you.

 Dog running caboose on that train is the way to go. I see many dogs out front and that has got to end badly sooner or later.

 Why we ride? Because it is fun. Thank you for attending my Tedtalk.

 1 pal and I squeezed in a post-work ride yesterday. A few whoops and holler later I was a new man. Pushing harder than on a normal weekend ride I got down to the 12 tooth cog. Getting the bike around all those corners without hitting trees on Rt.66 at that pace is f'n fun.

 It's the best feeling being in the moment, because the moment is all there is

 Many people ride mtb to reconnect with their bmx backgrounds.

 Nice to watch, but now very informative. Half sentences out of context to generic music- I wish we could get the long statement why they ride bikes.
  • 5 1
 I ride because I get grumpy and sad if I don't.
  • 4 2
 Why ride with them? Because they send it harder than me.
Still questionable if they'd ride with me haha

 @trisquel: why are you spamming? A quick look at your profile shows multiple random repeated comments since you joined.
  • 2 4
 Hello mate. It's not Span. I don't understand why it was rated below the threshold, I was just wondering who these girls are that I don't know. I said it politely. I think there is a misunderstanding. So as I think I didn't say anything bad or offensive, I've put the comment back several times, and I'll put it as many times as necessary. Greetings!!
  • 4 2
 @trisquel: you responded 7 times in a row with the same questions, then again later on with the same questions. They are below threashold because people are down-voting your comments. People are down-voting your comments because you are repeating yourself a bunch of times. Only you hold the key to preventing that from happening.

To answer your question, the ladies in the video are not UCI DH racers. Since you're grasp of female mountain bikers appears to be limited to UCI DH, that's why you don't recognize anyone. Google can be your friend, I'm sure you can find something out about their backgrounds if you try.

 @Thank you for asking and answering, I myself saw your comment as positive.I did not inform myself on Google, I thought it was not necessary.
And it's very curious, I left that same comment on the video on YouTube, and two people liked it. Perhaps a misunderstanding or people who are bored here. Greetings.

 Right, I only know the women from WC DH. Greetings
