This week on Podcast 011: Girlz Gone Riding w/ Wendy Engelberg I’m excited to bring you something I know you will love: a true ambassador in the world of Mountain Biking. My amazing guest is Wendy Engelberg, the Director of girlzgoneriding.com , the largest female mountain biking club in the country.
Wendy devotes a massive amount of her time setting up rides and events with a tight group of dedicated ladies. She sits on the board of CORBA, her local chapter of IMBA. She is a Brand Ambassador for Bulls Bikes USA, Kali Protectives, ZOIC and Petal Power.
Wendy’s story will resonate with the Mountain Biker in all of you. She spent some time explaining what draws her to the sport of mountain biking and how her favorite part of riding is the way it completely clears your head and lets you focus on the trail in front of you and nothing else.
IN THIS SHOW, YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT:
- How Wendy got in to the sport of mountain biking.
- How she formed Girlz Gone Riding.
- What trails and riding areas Wendy is riding.
- The amazing Rocktober event that the Girlz put on every October.
- The relationship that Specialized Bikes and Girlz Gone Riding have formed
- “No Drop” Rides
