By means of professional skills education and the sharing of experience, Shine strives to spread positivity, stoke, and inspiration worldwide, to women and girls pursuing a career or life in gravity driven bike sports. Shine’s core mission is to “illuminate and inspire rad female gravity mountain bikers.”
After sustaining a life-altering injury in a mountain biking accident in 2008, Shine Riders Co. was founded by professional skills coach Lindsay Beth Currier. Lindsay organizes, promotes, and coaches womens specific mountain bike Skills Clinics & Camps, Trips and Travel, and Womens Freeride Movement special events.
Lindsay utilizes the profits from Shine events to support a womens mountain bike Riding Community (open to all abilities and styles of riding), a gravity Race Team, and to cover general operating expenses (like running this website).
