bigquotesI started Ladies AllRide in 2013 after a decade of traveling the country promoting mountain biking, only to find the presence of women in the sport was grim. I wanted to start a program that encouraged more women to get involved with mountain biking in a welcoming, non-competitive and fun environment. I'm so excited about the growth I've witnessed in female participation over the past four years and we don't want it to slow down anytime soon!Lindsey Richter, Founder and Director of Inspiration for Ladies AllRide

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."

bigquotesAll of us at Liv have been excited by the growth of the Liv Ladies AllRide Powered by SRAM mountain bike camp series since we began the partnership in 2015. How quickly the camps fill up, the countless stories and the beaming smiles we see from these events continue to prove that supporting women’s mountain bike programs is vital and more important than ever.

Lindsey, Meredith and their incredible team offer an experience across the country that you can’t find anywhere. Their welcoming energy, humility and diverse and talented group of coaches make this series the best in class not only for the women’s market but for cycling in general. We can’t wait to see this community of female mountain bikers continue to grow and have more fun on bikes!

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.

bigquotesSRAM is proud to support the Ladies AllRide Program. You would be hard pressed to find a program that has put more miles on the black top traversing the country, and now the ocean, to get more women on bikes. Lindsey, Meredith and the whole team are passionate professionals and their program is helping change the face of the bicycle industry - one clinic at a time.Sara Jarrell SRAM Women’s Program Manager

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.


bigquotesMore and more brands are seeing the value in education-based mountain biking events that inspire women to find their confidence on bikes. We are beyond excited to partner with so many incredible companies in the bike industry. It has been amazing to see the industry's commitment to getting more women involved with mountain biking.Meredith Brandt, CEO for Ladies AllRide

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!"

 @b-mack: We had Tahoe all planned and the venue fell through at the last minute. We are having trouble finding the right venue in the Tahoe area. We tried Marin area a few years ago and logistically it was challenging. We are always open to venue suggestions that can accommodate our needs to run an amazing camp! We really want to be in Northern Cali, but the venue is key! Let's talk! Info@ladiesallride.com Smile

 Wish lodging were included in Brevard - or that there was a lodging included cost. Also - come to Stokesville, VA! Plenty of trail options from the campground, and lots of field space to do skills practice.

 It’s too bad that the girls camp only has one location on the west coast and there isn’t anything available on the east coast for under 18 girls.

Registration for the Transition Bikes event (Bellingham) in May and the Methow Cycle & Sport event (Winthrop) in June haven't opened yet but should soon so stay tuned.
The Hairball MTB Extravaganza in Port Angeles has a few spots left still and is taking place the weekend of March 30th: www.radicalrootsmtb.com/hairball-mountain-bike-extravaganza
The Queens of Dirt Clinic in June sold out quickly! Reg for next year's event will open sometime in January so you have to be ready early to snag a spot in there.
