Lindsey Richter, Founder and Director of Inspiration at Ladies AllRide, has been involved in the bicycle industry for 20 years. After 10 years of traveling the country on horseback, running, promoting products and sponsoring a children’s racing team, she had a vision to get more women into mountain biking. She obtained her teacher certification in 2010 and has since taught mountain biking full time around the world.
“My personal mountain biking journey has taught me technical skills and the relationship between mountain biking and life – moving the wheels and myself forward with positive thoughts. Mountain biking has helped me with mental health and to achieve what I am capable of, to have more confidence in myself and to overcome obstacles. I wanted to pass on this knowledge by helping as many women as possible discover their full potential on and off the bike.
Our amazing team of certified, knowledgeable, and passionate coaches are committed to our mission to help more people who identify as women experience the benefits of mountain biking. Not only do we teach valuable bike handling skills, but we also inspire them to move through all the uncertain and fear-based thoughts that inhibit growth and success on a bike and in life. We provide the tools to help women understand that the same skills their bikes need to overcome obstacles – determination, balance and momentum – also apply to their lives,” said Richter. “That’s when the magic happens!”
Liv, the company dedicated to getting more women riding bikes, has supported Ladies AllRide from the start and continues as title sponsor in 2022. Both brands are excited to continue their shared missions to inspire women with bikes. Attendees can demo and learn more about Liv mountain bikes and LAR will continue to work with Liv’s global marketing team to reach more women around the world.
“Like Liv, Ladies AllRide has been focused on getting more women and girls riding bikes and making mountain biking more inclusive,” said Brook Hopper, Liv’s global marketing manager. “Lindsey, Meredith and their team of experienced coaches have been instrumental in not only building the confidence and skills of women who ride, but also building community and creating more opportunities for women to experience the joys of cycling. of Mountain. We are incredibly proud to continue our longstanding partnership with Ladies AllRide.
An important part of the camps are the education stations where women learn how to set up and adjust suspension, repair punctures, maintain bikes, deal with fear and much more. And then of course there are the raffle prizes thanks to so many great sponsors!
“SRAM is proud to support the Ladies AllRide program. You’d be hard-pressed to find a program that put more Black Roof miles across the country, and now across the ocean, to get more women on bikes,” said Sara Jarrell, SRAM Global Community Manager. “Lindsey, Meredith and the entire team are passionate professionals and their program is helping to change the face of the bike industry – one camp at a time.”
“We are really excited to partner with so many amazing companies in the outdoor industry. More and more brands are seeing the value of welcoming more women into mountain biking as a way to grow our camps based on sport and education as Ladies AllRide empower and inspire women to become passionate cyclists and cyclists for life,” said Meredith Brandt, Ladies CEO of AllRide. “We are truly grateful to see the commitment of so many awesome brands to become more inclusive in the mountain bike community.”
