So what exactly is Shine?

Shine is an online publication and community center for womens gravity mountain biking.  Founded by Lindsay Beth Currier, and now partnered with freelance journalist Joh Rathbun  and contributors worldwide, Shine is a collaborative effort to illuminate womens power through their strength, courage, intelligence and heart within the realm of gravity mountain biking. We aim to provide a place to read inspiring articles or post your own, and provide a welcoming and encouraging space to meet other riders, ask questions, and provide advice (in our forum and via our chat service).

For 2013 we officially have a Gravity Race Team. Please click that link and check us out!

Shine also produces some rad ladies events:
