The Shine Riders Collective was founded in 2008 by rider Lindsay Beth Currier after a mountain biking accident in the Santa Cruz mountains. Shine’s mission is to ILLUMINATE and INSPIRE female GRAVITY mountain bikers across the globe. GRAVITY mountain biking includes downhill, enduro, freeride, and any riding with an emphasis on descending and tackling challenging terrain.
November 2015, Shine is heading back to the exponentially growing desert mountain biking mecca, Sedona, Arizona. Partnering with Sedona Destination Adventures, this 4-Day MTB Sedona Experience is for LADIES ONLY and will feature on trail guidance with technical skills coach Lindsay Beth Currier.
“I can’t believe it took me so long to get to ‘Shredona!’ These mountains are full of magic, the locals are amazingly hospitable and more full of energy and light than any tourist-driven mountain bike destination I have ever been too for work or pleasure. I’ll definitely be back as soon as possible to shred more red dirt, explore the natural history, and of course re-charge my crystals!” – from the diary of Lindsay Beth Currier, February 2015
We had so much success and met so many amazing women at Irwin Cycles in Las Vegas, Nevada this past winter that we just can’t wait to get back for another weekend with the Irwins! We are still in the works of planning the weekend, but expect an evening social, a group ride + a technical skills clinic, all centered at Irwin Cycles in Las Vegas, Nevada.
A little about Irwin Cycles… 50% woman owned-and-operated, Irwin’s success is driven by the synergistic relationship of wife and husband, Lifan and Carl Irwin. Both owners infuse the shop with their individual energies and experiences in not only cycling, but with helping others enjoy outdoor recreation. The shop is outfitted with all of the tools needed to get your bike fixed and/or setup for the best time riding, road or mountain. A reasonable amount of clothing and accessories are on display in the showroom, and Lifan assures us they wouldn’t carry anything they would not personally recommend. Of course Irwin’s can special order almost anything you or your bike may need.
“I’ve realized I can be little bit shy or cold to those who do not know me.. And I have a really hard time trusting people I’ve just met on the road.. mostly just with my watching my dog, and the other usual stuff… When I got back from my ride and my dog didn’t want to leave the shop… I knew something was totally right here. I love this couple for what they are doing for the cycling community in their neighborhood of Vegas. I love them for how they take good care of everyone, myself included!” – from the diaries of Lindsay Beth Currier, Dec 2015
