2023 GRiT Ambassadors: 

“I want to be a GRIT ambassador because I’m always inviting my friends to ride with me but in the past the only ones who have gone with me have been boys. I feel like the girl biking community is very small and especially where I live, not a lot people know about it or they think it’s too challenging so they don’t even try.”
– Sarah (SWMO Goats)

“I want to be a GRiT Ambassador because I want more girls to ride bikes. I think it’s important that boys see girl riders at practices and races so they realize girls can mountain bike too. I think some girls might want to mountain bike but are nervous like I was. I want to help them know that this is not a boys-only sport. Girls can do it too and have fun. GRiT helps girls feel like they’re not alone on a bike – they are part of the team.”
– Ella (Springfield Youth Cycling Club)

“I want to be a GRiT Ambassador because I finally found a home in the mountain bike community and I want to see more girls find the same home that I did.”
– Jillian (St. Charles County Bears)

“I want to be a GRiT Ambassador because I want to meet other girls who like to ride bikes. I want to encourage other girls to start mountain biking because it’s not fun to be the only girl in the group. When I ride with other girls, I feel more comfortable trying new things. I want to show other girls how fun and challenging mountain biking can be while making new friends.”
– Lucy (South City Composite)
