The Ladies AllRide team of skilled and passionate coaches help ladies realize what they're capable of on and off their bikes, and they remain 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 using mountain biking as a catalyst for growth and change.
Lindsey explains, "Our Ladies AllRide coaching philosophy focuses on the technical aspects of riding as well as the relationship between mountain biking and life. We understand how women tend to let their minds run away from them with negative, debilitating thoughts that inhibit growth on a bike and in life. It begins by providing them with the tools to have a deeper understanding of the sport. Then ladies begin to understand what their bikes need from them to get over obstacles and 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 the bike and life."
Liv Cycling, the cycling brand completely dedicated to women, has been with Ladies AllRide since the beginning and will continue as title sponsor in 2019. Presenting sponsor SRAM and a long list of awesome companies including Vittoria Tires, SMITH, CAMELBAK, Sombrio, Picky Bars, Crankbrothers and G-Form have remained on board to support the popular series of camps. Team Ladies AllRide loves sharing some of the best products in the business through demos, samples, raffle giveaways and discount codes. CEO Meredith pops a wheelie on her way back from the trails.

The Liv Ladies AllRide camps are dedicated to inspiring women to accomplish more than they thought possible on and off the bike. An important component to that are the education stations at the camps where women learn about setting up and adjusting suspension, fixing flat tires, bike maintenance, gear, facing fear and so much more.

Each camp offers demo equipment like Liv Intrigue demo bikes outfitted with SRAM components, RockShox suspension and Vittoria tires. G-form pads, SMITH helmets, and Crankbrothers pedals will be available to demo, along with samples of Sombrio clothing to try on. All participants will also receive a welcome goody bag filled with Ladies AllRide signature Save our Soles socks, samples and discount codes from many of their awesome sponsors.
Former participant Agnès Rodriguez, who now works for Ladies AllRide as Operations Manager and Head Yogi says: "The camps are well-organized and extremely inviting. The pre-camp 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 shredding. 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 can get your bike to do!"
