A warm welcome to Lindsay Beth, All Mountain Style ambassador from United States.
Lindsay has been riding mountain bikes since she was a very little girl, began working at her local bike shop at age 16, and has been leading rides and passing on bike knowledge for well over a decade. Lindsay founded Shine Riders Co in 2008 while recovering from a burst fractured vertebrae in her back. In later 2008, Lindsay was hired by Cambria Bicycle Outfitters in Santa Rosa, CA to lead rides in Sonoma County for the HillJillys. Lindsay also shared knowledge about equipment selection, maintenance, and repair.
In 2012, Lindsay was certified as a Mountain Bike Skills Coach by Shaums March, through his IMIC program (now IMBA ICP). She has since coached for the Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival, Dixie Trix, Sweetlines Coaching, the Trek Dirt Series, the Midwest Women’s Clinic, and a multitude of women’s specific, co-ed, gravity, freeride, and all-mountain clinics and trips that she has produced for Shine (see her incredible coaching log below). Lindsay also coaches private lessons, which she says is her favorite because she gets to tailor her lessons specifically to the clients needs.
Additionally, Lindsay provides skills coaching and support for the Shine Race Team and volunteers whenever possible to provide free or affordable skills coaching for younger, or less fortunate riders. She enjoys racing at the expert level and being featured in photos and videos, to inspire more women to get into gravity racing and freeride mountain biking. Overall, Lindsay is all about having fun on the trails, being safe with skills, and progressing womens mountain biking through skills education and the sharing of experiences.
Welcome to the team Lindsay.
