2021 GRiT Ambassadors: 

These young ladies were nominated by coaching or league staff for their leadership, attitude, and motivation.  We think their own words speak louder than we ever could about the need for #moregirlsonbikes.  

“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)
