In a town full of professional athletes and hardcore recreationalists, Lindsey’s passion for mountain biking stands out among the sporty Bend crowd. Previously a pro racer, Lindsey started her Ladies AllRide clinics after seeing a lacking female presence at the events she was coaching. Her contagious energy and badass demeanor is balanced with a humble relateability that drew us to her as someone we just HAD to work with. Picky Bars will be the official nutrition sponsor of all the Ladies AllRide clinics in 2017!

Would you rather have Gilbert Gottfried narrate your every thought out loud or have Chumbawumba’s “Tubthumping” playing constantly in the background everywhere you went?
Gilbert can narrate my thoughts. It would sound about right.
Anything else you desperately want the people to know?
I believe adventure sports like mountain biking can truly change women’s lives. Mountain biking can help women identify and face fears, overcome challenges and accomplish more than they thought possible, which in turn helps them believe in themselves and their abilities. I have also found my tribe of supportive, encouraging women through mountain biking and I want more women to know this lifestyle exists for them!
