PRESS RELEASE: World Ride

Due to popular demand, we are hosting another online movie night while we are all still at home. The movie night will feature a new lineup of five different women's mountain bike films. "We received so many positive and supportive messages from everyone who participated after the last movie night! So many people mentioned how it was exactly what they needed during this time. Because of the great response we decided to move forward will another online movie night, " said World Ride director Julie Cornelius. The online movie night will be available worldwide and will be interactive with live Q&A with some of the women featured in the films.

World Ride is a 501(c)3 non profit with the mission of empowering women globally through mountain biking. With the donations received from the online movie night on April 2, World Ride was able to purchase four bikes for the bike library in Guatemala. This will be a huge step in helping to get more women able to try out the sport and get involved in the World Ride program there. Women will be able to borrow a bike from the library and participate in group rides with other local women. Having four bikes will help to develop the community of female Guatemalan mountain bikers.

 Free Riding Iran is really cool. I find cultures like Iran super interesting and seeing it all from the perspective of female mountain bikers is fascinating. I really recommend it, less as a shred-flick but as a fun documentary.

 Awesome! Cheers PB for sharing stuff like this, hopefully more to come. Interested in watching Free Riding Iran, sounds like it could be a similar story to the work Ascend Athletics are doing in Afghanistan.
