What is GRiT? Girls Riding Together. Why GRiT? To ensure that girls know that the sport of mountain biking is a sport for EVERYONE!
For too long there has been a misconception — often pushed along by clumsy marketing — that mountain biking is a sport predominantly for boys. This couldn’t be further from the truth! The fact is that anyone with a modest sense of adventure can be a mountain biker. The SoCal GRiT program aims to get #MoreGirlsOnBikes by creating an extended community of girls (grades 6-12) and female coaches from across SoCal to support each other as they grow as mountain bikers. We do this through a combination of GRiT Ambassadors, GRiT Gatherings, GRiT Tent activities at races, visibility through GRiT Kit and marketing material, and ice cream. LOTS OF ICE CREAM!
